Watch: Chris Rock to perform live on Netflix in 2023: 'This will be an unforgettable moment'
The US star will take to the stage for the global streaming event next year, and it's thought it could pave the way for more live content on the streaming service.
The company tweeted: "Chris Rock is about to make history as the first artist to perform LIVE on Netflix!
"The legendary comedian, writer, director, and actor’s newest comedy special will premiere live - globally - in early 2023 on Netflix!"
“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” said Robbie Praw, Netflix Vice President of Stand-up and Comedy Formats.
“We're thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history.
"This will be an unforgettable moment and we're so honoured that Chris is carrying this torch.”

It will be Rock’s second Netflix stand-up comedy special.
The 57-year-old's first, which was called Tambourine, debuted in February 2018.
Smith has apologised and Rock hasn't said much about the incident.
But in September he did hint that he might end up talking about it on Netflix.
"People expect me to talk about the bull****, I’m not going to talk about it right now, I’ll get to it eventually, on Netflix,” he was quoted as saying.
