While sometimes you need a wholesome cry to release pint up emotions, other times you need a good laugh straight from the belly.


Thank goodness for Netflix, right? They’ve come through for us on the bleakest to the brightest days. We’ve learned a lot from their documentaries and we have a great portal of escapism accessible at a moment’s go.

And while everyone needs a cheering up, Netflix has a plethora of hilarious stand-up comedies to have you laughing out loud. Here are ten of the funniest comedy specials for you to get lost in.
