Dave Chappelle, who was once considered by many to be the funniest man in the comedy world, is back.
Following a successful hosting of Saturday Night Live that was one of the most watched episodes in recent memory, Chappelle announced he would be bringing three brand new stand-up specials exclusively to Netflix. At the time, there were no further details. Today, those details have emerged.
Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin and Dave Chappelle: Deep in the Heart of Texas, two separate stand-up specials, will hit Netflix on March 21. The former was filmed in Los Angeles in March 2016 and the latter at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas in April 2015. They mark Chappelle’s first real return to mainstream comedy media since he walked away from his incredibly successful sketch comedy show Chappelle’s Show in 2005.
The teaser features short snippets from Chappelle’s routines. In addition to these two specials, a third one has been promised (although no details about it are available yet).
