A Brand New Comedy Series Filmed Entirely In Montreal Is Coming to Netflix Canada

Netflix has been a great platform for emerging stand-up comedians to truly shine. Many stand-up comics have been propelled into stardom just from one Netflix special.

For example, I had no clue who Ali Wong was before I watched her incredibly hilarious, first-ever Netflix special "Baby Cobra." Soon after its release, Ali Wong became an international sensation, even booking the biggest venue at the 2017 JFL festival. She deserves it.

TL;DR Netflix Canada is releasing a brand-new comedy series that was filmed entirely in Montreal. Comedians Of The World showcases 47 comedians from 13 regions in 8 languages. It will debut on Netflix Canada January 1st, 2019!

That said, Montreal is home to one of the biggest comedy festivals in the world, the Just For Laughs Festival, which makes Montreal an internationally-regonized hub for comedy.
