If you miss the show when it premiers or just want to watch it again, we’ll have on-demand replays available in Horizon Worlds and on Oculus TV.

We also partnered with Just For Laughs to bring their acclaimed New Faces discovery showcase to VR. Over the years, the showcase has brought a host of world-class comedy stars into the spotlight, from Kevin Hart and Jo Koy to Amy Schumer and Kumail Nanjiani. The five-part showcase will air weekly in Horizon Worlds beginning October 4, introducing nearly 50 up-and-coming standup comedians to the Quest community.
