The inaugural Netflix is a Joke Festival, the weeklong Los Angeles comedy extravaganza scheduled for April 27 - May 3, was only announced a couple weeks ago but has now been postponed due to COVID-19:

Based on the latest CDC guidelines we’ve decided to postpone our Netflix Is A Joke Fest, which was scheduled to begin April 27. We’ve been blown away by the excitement from fans and we will work to reschedule the Fest when we can. In the meantime please everyone take care, hold onto your tickets and we look forward to seeing you all soon. More information for ticket holders will be available in the weeks ahead.

The festival was to have featured Dave Chappelle, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, Ali Wong, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, David Letterman, Jamie Foxx, Schitt's Creek Live, and tons more.
