The companies on Wednesday announced "Netflix Is A Joke Radio" will feature highlights from such comedians as Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld and Wanda Sykes. The channel also will feature segments from future stand-up specials and clips from Netflix's comedy talk shows.
