Netflix Teases Two Dave Chappelle Stand Up Specials Coming This Month

Not everything is bad.

Dave Chappelle has been away a long time.

On March 21, Dave Chappelle is releasing two stand-up specials from his personal vault.

A teaser trailer for the two Netflix specials shows Chappelle sitting pensively outside at a cafe, smoking a cigarette, as an audio recording, presumably from the upcoming special, plays in the background.

Netflix has already landed deals with Dave Chappelle, Louis CK, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt and Amy Schumer - and is apparently shelling out big money for all of them. Yes, that's right - you'll be able to watch two of the three Chappelle comedy specials announced by Netflix this past November in a few weeks' time. A third Netflix special from the comedian is still in the works. "I didn't know that Donald Trump was going to win the election", Chappelle said in his opening monologue. "You guys aren't as full of surprises as you used to be". But America's done it.

With its lineup of comedians slated to appear in the coming months, it's clear that Netflix's efforts are no joke.
