#PRIDE To Watch: NETFLIX: Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ Comedy Celebration

Grid those loins and prepare to laugh!

For #PRIDE 2022 Netflix has put together a Historic Celebration & Performance of the best in LGBT Comedy. Legends, headliners, and emerging talent that performed at The Greek Theatre for an unforgettable gay stand-up event.

Hosted by Billy Eichner, Eichner made a passing reference to the Hollywood Bowl incident involving Dave Chapelle, who was attacked last month onstage.

“Let’s be honest, no one knows what’s going to happen tonight,” he said in the new special. “Comedy is a very violent place these days, alright? There are comedians getting attacked at the Oscars, there are comedians getting attacked at the Hollywood Bowl. But we are the LGBTQ community. We are sophisticated, we are chic, and we are above all that nonsense, right? So let’s please hold ourselves to a higher standard. Please, nobody jump onstage and try to body slam Lily Tomlin.”

Headliners include: Eddie Izzard, Margaret Cho, Sandra Bernhard, Tig Notaro, Wanda Sykes, and Rosie O’Donnell. Featuring: Solomon Georgio, Sam Jay, River Butcher, Patti Harrison, Matteo Lane, Marsha Warfield, Mae Martin, Judy Gold, Joel Kim Booster, James Adomian, Guy Branum, Gina Yashere, Bob the Drag Queen, Trixie Mattel, Scott Thompson, Todd Glass.

Available now. On Netflix.
