Netflix Teaser Previews Dave Chappelle's New Stand-Up Specials

Posted March 03, 2017

In the last couple of months, the company has inked deals with a number of high-profile performers such as Dave Chappelle, Louis CK, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Amy Schumer. Yet the next two will come from the same person, and according to a new teaser just released by the streaming service, Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin and Dave Chappelle: Deep in the Heart of Texas will be available for viewing on March 21st. He's reportedly making a whopping $60 million for all three installments.

Given that the two performances are previously recorded shows from his personal comedy vault, it isn't surprising that Netflix was able to manage a fairly quick turnaround. He mentions everything from Martin Luther King Jr.to O.J. Simpson, not to mention Bigfoot riding a unicorn. "I know I've been gone for a very long time", he begins, referencing his absence from public life after leaving Chappelle's Show in 2005.

These are the first stand-up specials from Chappel since 2004's What It's Worth.
