A monthly look at what’s scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, CraveTV and Amazon Prime Video:

Netflix already stocks an arsenal of hilarious stand-up comedy specials that each span about an hour, but their latest series promises to deliver the funny in a quarter of the time. “The Comedy Lineup” throws a diverse group of buzzworthy comedians onto the stage for a brief 15-minute set which challenges them to win over the audience in only a short time. Among the eight featured comedians is Michelle Buteau of the podcast “Late Night Whenever” and Ian Karmel, writer on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “Portlandia.” The series debuts July 3.

Laughter is also top-of-mind for creators at Amazon Prime Video where the nine-episode competition series “Comicstaan” seeks the next star of India’s stand-up comedy scene. Hopeful comics will compete in challenges and deliver their best punchlines to a jury of their peers. The series, which debuts July 13, is hosted by Indian talk show celebrity Abish Mathew and viral YouTuber Sumukhi Suresh.

Sink your teeth into an intense collection of shark-themed documentaries on CraveTV as part of Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week event. The streaming service is putting together a Shark Week Collection, due July 20, which highlights more than 60 films and series that fit into the theme. New additions include “African Shark Safari,” “Sharks and the City: L.A.” and last year’s “Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White,” where Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps donned a monofin and attempted to beat the speed of a hammerhead and a reef shark.
