Netflix has been consistently putting out new comedy specials all year round. On Oct. 31, the streamer dropped Ralph Barbosa’s Cowabunga special, and it quickly soared up the top 10 TV shows list.

This is Barbosa’s first-ever Netflix special. During his hour-long set, Barbosa talks and jokes about his childhood growing up with his grandparents, starting his own hair-cutting business out of his bedroom when he was just 13 years old, moon rocks, and his fantasy of wanting to be with a woman who enjoys street racing. He did a good job for it to only be his first comedy special on Netflix.

Ralph Barbosa made his debut on the late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in January 2023, where he talked about becoming a father and getting his own apartment. A couple of months later, he had a Comedy Central stand-up special where he talked about what people think he writes in his notebook and the one-star review he left his doctor. This comedy special has over 3 million views on YouTube as of Nov. 1.

But before all of those major accomplishments, Barbosa had won the Funniest Comic in Texas competition in 2019, and the New York Latino Film Festival Stand-Up competition in 2021. He then went on to perform in the Max stand-up show Entre Nos: The Winners 3 which was released in November 2022.
