We don't care what anyone says, there's nothing more important in this life than laughter! Er, alright...love, money, and good health are all up there too! But seriously, laughter is the best medicine and these comedy specials on Netflix are 100% proof of that! We know a lot of folks are more into documentaries and dramas, but c'mon — isn't the whole point of Netflix to escape reality/remain glued to your couch? Yep, that's what we thought.
If given the choice between laughing and crying, we're going to go with laughter! Hands down, every time. We know that seems like a given, but you'd be surprised at how many people enjoying wallowing (we're looking at you, Adele).
Here's the thing about laughter that's important to remember...it's not that easy to come by! Sure, you might force out a giggle here and there when your boss tells you some tolerable anecdote about that thing they did after too much Rosé, but balls to the wall, guttural, deep-laughter is basically like the Lost City Of Atlantis (minus all the salt water and algae).
It's really damn important to laugh and that's why comedians, good comedians, make a boat load of money. Not just anyone can be funny, ya know? Please, all of you write that down. We're serious. It's such a common misconception! Not every douche with a decent yo mama joke can just add "comic" to their CV.
Anyway, back to these good comedians — we'll be so bold as to suggest they're the most important people in Hollywood. Sure, we appreciate actors who can transform themselves into love-scorned sociopaths or dead presidents, but at the end of a hard work day we just want to laugh!
These 17 comedians are the real MVPs and luckily, all of their comedy specials can be found on Netflix. P.S. If at this point in your life you don't have access to Netflix, then you really don't deserve to be reading this article...
