Netflix has never been beholden to the 30- and 60-minute program lengths of network television — that was one of the appeals of the streaming giant for creators. Now the company is experimenting with another running time: a mobile-friendly 15 minutes for a series of specials featuring up-and-coming standup comics. Participating comics include Aisling Bea, Michelle Buteau, Tim Dillon, JR De Guzman, Sabrina Jalees, Janelle James, Sam Jay, Josh Johnson, Ian Karmel, Jak Knight, Matteo Lane, Max Silvestri, Taylor Tomlinson, Phil Wang, Emma Willmann and Kate Willett.
