Netflix hands out eight half-hour comedy specials in new series, “The Characters”


This is a week for surprise streaming TV deals, isn't it?!

Netflix just announced it already has eight half-hour comedy specials in the can for a new limited series called The Characters. They're not stand-up specials, per se. Rather, Netflix just gave each of these funny people a half-hour to do with whatever they pleased.

Sketch. Impersonations. Character pieces. Satire. Parody.

Here are the eight performers debuting half-hour specials on March 11, 2016, in The Characters on Netflix:

  • Kate Berlant
  • Dr. Brown
  • Paul W. Downs 
  • John Early
  • Lauren Lapkus
  • Tim Robinson
  • Natasha Rothwell 
  • Henry Zebrowski   

And here's the trailer. You may notice Tyson Beckford, Brian McCann, Abbi Jacobson, Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan and more providing support to their funny friends.

Roll the clip!
