The Holiday season can be an exhausting time of year; plenty of food, alcohol, and family arguments. The socializing can reduce you to a secluded bunker that you call your bedroom. When the over-celebrated New Year’s Eve comes, and you pretend it is the best night of the year, as you repeatedly stretch that smile numbed by your fourth sambuca shot, you can relax knowing that on New Year’s Day you have that golden opportunity to stay in bed and be miserable. Well, you don’t have to, because Netflix Comedy Event Comedians of the World will be hitting our thumbnails.

Here is the first peek of the key art:
