Netflix continues to add exclusive stand-up specials as part of its broader original programming and acquisitions strategy.

Just announced, four new stand-up specials from comedians Jim Jefferies, Chelsea Peretti, Bill Burr, and the legend Bill Cosby will be exclusively available on the platform. These sets will join Chelsea Handler’s one-hour special, which is set to debut on October 10 and was acquired as part of Netflix’s late-night comedy deal with the comedienne.

First up, “Jim Jefferies: Bare” on August 29, which will be followed by Handler’s “Uganda Be Kidding Me Live,” Peretti’s “One of the Greats” on November 14, “Bill Cosby 77” on November 28, and “Bill Burr: I’m Sorry You Feel That Way” on December 5.

“Jim Jefferies: Bare” follows the comedian’s international tour “Day Streaming Tour” and three previous stand-up performances. It was executive produced by Jefferies, Lisa Blum, and Michelle Caputo.

Handler’s special, as previously announced, will be the culmination of her international tour, which was in support of her New York Times bestseller “Uganda Be Kidding Me.” The special is executive produced by Handler, Tom Brunelle, and Brad Wollack.

“One of the Greats” is described by Netflix as a “reimagining” of the hour-long special. Filmed in San Francisco, the special was executive produced by Chelsea Peretti, Christie Smith, Mike Berkowitz, Brian Volk-Weiss, Cisco Henson, and Lance Bangs.

“Bill Cosby 77” is in celebration of the comedy legend’s 77th birthday. The concert was directed by Townsend.

Bill Burr’s special follows up a couple other performances by the comedian that are also available for streaming on Netflix. “I’m Sorry You Feel That Way” was executive produced by Burr, Dave Becky, Mike Berkowitz, Brian Volk-Weiss, and Cisco Henson.

The specials will be available in all territories Netflix is available in, including the European countries the company plans to expand to by the end of the year.
