Dave Chappelle's first two Netflix specials will premiere later this month

Dave Chappelle's first two Netflix specials will premiere later this month

Thanks to a deal with Netflix, he's back in a big way.

Oh, what's that? You've got a standup special premiering on Netflix this month?

Netflix teased the return of the acclaimed comedian on Thursday with a teaser trailer promoting his upcoming pair of stand-up comedy specials, which both premiere March 21 on the streaming service. Within each of the two hour-long specials, self-financed by Chappelle and directed by Stan Lathan, the Emmy®-nominated comedian brings his unflinching comedic style, tackling race, class, politics, pop culture, and more.




"Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy - searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential", Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP, original documentary and comedy, said, via THR. This will, however, be the first time they are presented as specials. We're curious to see how those subjects come together. He recently hosted Saturday Night Live, and now, these two comedy specials are set to air on March 21 - with a third special coming later this year.

"By the end of this year, unless somebody mounts a tremendous counterattack, which is getting increasingly harder, Netflix will have utter domination of one of five or six genres that exist".
