Netflix announces premiere date for two Dave Chappelle specials
Comedian Dave Chappelle is headed back to TV with his first concert specials in a dozen years — two of them. Both premiere March 21, exclusively on Netflix.
The stand-up specials will hit Netflix as part of a deal that Chappelle has made with the streaming giant to release not only new material but also specials that he has from his own comedy vault.
Netflix just released the trailer for two of those specials.
Chappelle’s comedy career includes movie roles in “The Nutty Professor,” ”Con Air” and “Blue Streak.” In 2003, he achieved heightened fame and critical acclaim as the mastermind of his Comedy Central sketch series, “Chappelle’s Show,” only to abruptly exit the series in its third season.
The world has long needed some Chappelle. He last graced us with a special in 2004. His brilliant opening monologue on Saturday Night Live last November only left us wanting more, and we are so close to getting it.
