The 5 Best Stand Ups on Netlix Right Now

They meet. They fall in love. They fight. They make up. They live happily ever after.

Sound familiar? It’s the plot of every rom-com you’ve ever seen, and the reason you ask yourself if you’ve already seen the movie even after watching it for the very first time. A killer soundtrack and a long list of stars can’t hold you captive like they used to and I'm in the same boat

My lack of enthusiasm for the genre I once hailed as a high-schooler can barely keep me from falling asleep on the couch. Therefore, I’ve recently turned my attention to a genre that provides a lot more variety and a lot more laughs: stand up comedy. They have their hits and their misses, but here is my take on some of the best (in order, of course):

5. Chris D'Elia: Incorrigible

Although D’Elia and I weren’t always on the same page, most of his stand-up was very funny. His body language and ability to laugh at himself made his punchlines funnier and bits easier to watch. Although his stand-up isn’t for people who don’t appreciate dumb humor, it’s definitely worth the watch if you want to figure out whether the shirt was actually orange.

4. Mike Birbiglia: My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

Anyone with a high school experience scarred with memories of painfully awkward encounters can relate to Mike Birbiglia. Birbiglia’s stand-up isn’t raunchy, isn’t hard to follow and cultivates a story that is seamless and attention-grabbing.

3. Louis C.K.: Chewed Up

You’ve probably heard that Louis C.K is one of the top-paid comedians and you’ve probably heard that he’s really funny, which is very true. Although C.K. can get raunchy and tackles content that is a bit dark and controversial (you’d know if you’ve ever seen his latest SNL monologue), his bits are relevant, truthful and you’ll feel bad that you’re laughing so hard.

2. Jim Gaffigan: Mr. Universe

He’s family friendly and very in touch with your food-loving side. Gaffigan is another self-effacing comedian who is great at creating a show that pokes fun at topics we already know about or helping us realize the absurdity of things we already do. Because we all love Disney, right?

1. John Mulaney: New In Town

New In Town is one the best stand-ups on Netflix, by far. Mulaney’s dry, self-effacing sense of humor literally made me ‘ROFL’. As one of the most quotable, New In Town, provided many hilarious moments and insight on one of the most interesting beggars you’ll ever find on the streets of New York.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
