Chris Rock is set to make Netflix history with his newest show

Chris Rock is set to make Netflix history with his newest show

Chris Rock and Netflix have partnered up on a groundbreaking project.

Just months after unintentionally making history at the Oscars, Chris Rock has announced he will delve into live TV once again in what will be a groundbreaking project for Netflix.

The comedian and presenter is teaming up with the steaming giant as it delves into the world of live television for the very first time.

Rock will star in a comedy special which will be Netflix’s first live global streaming event.

“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” said Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy formats.

“We’re thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be part of Netflix history.

“This will be an unforgettable moment and we’re so honoured that Chris is carrying the torch.”

Hopefully there will be no mention of Jada Pinkett Smith’s appearance or G.I. Jane for Chris’ sake, of course.

The comedy special is set air live in early 2023 and more details will be released in the near future.

The Everybody Hates Chris creator’s last comedy stand-up special for Netflix, Tamborine, dropped in 2018.

He also appeared alongside controversial comic Dave Chapelle in the Netflix is a Joke festival earlier this year.

Currently Rock is performing on his Ego Death world tour which is set to end on 17 November in Los Angeles.

During a show in London, Rock said he would discuss the infamous Will Smith Oscars 'slap' on Netflix.

"People expect me to talk about the bullsh*t, I’m not going to talk about it right now, I’ll get to it eventually, on Netflix," he said.

Will the world finally hear more about the incident from Chris live on Netflix? We can only hope.

Back in September both Rock and Chappelle ripped into the Best Actor Oscar winner as they discussed the incident.

On 3 September at London’s O2 Arena, Rock was joined by Chappelle as the pair continued their European stand-up tour.

Rock kicked things off on stage by addressing Will Smith's apology he posted on YouTube back in July.

Will said: "Chris, I apologise to you. My behaviour was unacceptable and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk.

"I know it was confusing, I know it was shocking. But I promise you, I am deeply devoted and committed to putting light and love and joy into the world. And, you know, if you hang on, I promise we'll be able to be friends again."

The Fresh Prince actor also said: "It’s all fuzzy. I’ve reached out to Chris and the message that came back is he’s not ready to talk and when he is, he will reach out.

"There’s no part of me that thinks that’s the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults."

Rock hit back on stage with: “ "F**k your hostage video."

He confessed 'that s**t hurt', while adding: "He played Ali. I can’t even play Floyd Mayweather."
