If you watch a decent amount of television, you may have noticed there are a lot more stand-up comedians starring in their own specials.
HBO, Comedy Central and Showtime have been cashing in on funny for a while. Now Netflix is rolling out specials. NBC is launching Seeso, a comedy streaming service. Even video services like Vimeo are getting into the mix.
HBO touted "Amy Schumer Live at the Apollo" as the "comedy event of the year."
