Where else could you find the strange conglomeration of characters including Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Pete Davidson, Wanda Sykes, Margaret Cho, Machine Gun Kelly, Amy Schumer, Snoop Dogg, John Mulaney, and Trixie Mattel all in one place?
The Netflix Is a Joke Festival went down from April 28 through May 8 as part of a major collection of mostly stand-up comedy shows, though sprinkled in were also musical performances, panels, and other sets. Now, over a month later, we're finally getting access to those shows on Netflix as the platform is steadily releasing each group of sets over the course of a few weeks. The latest in its lineup? Pete Davidson Presents: The Best Friends.
The "best friends" include Neko White, Dave Sirus, Jordan Rock, Joey Gay, Carly Aquilino, Giulio Gallarotti, Big Wet, and Machine Gun Kelly. Whether or not all of these people are actually best friends is still up for discussion (show me a heartfelt scrapbook as proof!), but it was definitely an interesting crew. Big Wet and Machine Gun Kelly performed musical acts whereas the first seven performers—including Davidson—each had around 10 minutes or less to perform their stand-up routines.
