Netflix is not playing when it comes to their comedy content. Just over a month ago we found out that Chris Rock will be brining two new specials to the streaming network, and now we are finding out Dave Chappelle will be bringing 3 new specials to Netflix. A while back Comedy Hype revealed that Chappelle had already filmed two specials which one was expected to HBO. Now we see that Chappelle is joining full venture with Netflix.
Need more reasons for it to be 2017? Netflix announced Monday that it would be releasing three new comedy specials from Dave Chappelle — his first concert specials in 12 years. “Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,” said Netflix’s VP of Original Documentary and Comedy, Lisa Nishimura, in a statement. “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 first special will be an original produced by Chappelle and director Stan Lathan, while Netflix reports that two more never-before-seen episodes will come directly from Chappelle’s “personal comedy vault.”
