Ray Romano: Right Here, Around the Corner (Netflix)

Everybody still loves Everybody Loves Raymond star Ray Romano, right? We hope so because he's back. 23 years after his last stand-up special he's debuting a brand new comedy special Right Here, Around the Corner. It follows the screenwriter and Emmy Award-winning actor performing two sets in one night. First, at Manhattan's Comedy Cellar and then at the Village Underground — a comedy club quite literally around the corner. Romano makes jokes on how to choose friends, survive marriage, and knowing the differences between being old and not being young. On Netflix from Tuesday.
