By Tina Burke
Hold on to your hats, because Australian comedians Joel Creasey and Nazeem Hussain are coming to Netflix!
The duo are joining a roster of renowned comedians, including Nicole Byer, Katherine Levac and Have You Been Paying Attention regular Urzila Carlson, for a side-splitting Netflix special.
The streaming service is set to bring together a whopping 47 comedians from 13 regions of the world for an unprecedented stand-up comedy event series.

Each comedian will perform a half-hour stand-up special, with all episodes dropping on the same day.
32 of the 47 comedians will be filmed at the upcoming 'Just for Laughs' festival in Montreal, with sets also being taped in Brazil, Mexico, India, Germany and The Netherlands.
The series will premiere on Netflix in 2019, and with so many big names attached we're sure to be counting down the days!
"Few things are better than discovering a new comedian you love," says Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP, Original Documentary and Comedy.
"With this event, we're creating a true comedy festival experience for our members where they can scour the globe from home to find some of the freshest voices in comedy."

Nazeem shared his excitement with his Instagram followers, posting a photo with the caption "Super excited to be filming my stand up special for Netflix in Montreal in a couple of weeks!!"
Joel echoed his sentiment with a simple, yet effective, "Well this is exciting."
