Hot on the heels of hosting SNL, Dave Chappell is partnering with Netflix to release 3 all-new specials.
One of the specials will be produced exclusively for Netflix with Chappell and director Stan Lathan. The other two will come from Chappelle’s comedy vault from shows filmed at Austin City Limits and The Hollywood Palladium.
“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,” said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentary and Comedy. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy, and we are honored he will mark his global return on Netflix.”
The specials drop simultaneously in 2017 about 12 years after Chappelle’s last special.
