Assemble. Your. Crew.
As if blessing us with 2 brand-new specials on New Year’s Eve wasn’t enough, the comedy gods have struck again. It was announced that Comedy Central will be airing every episode of Chappelle’s Show in chronological order on January 1st.
If by any far-fetched chance you were not already planning to bring in the New Year with Chappelle via the upcoming Netflix specials Equanimity & The Bird Revelation, then you now have a little more persuasion.
The legendary sketch-comedy show will air in chronological order starting at 9 a.m. EST/PST on Jan. 1, 2018, with every episode of Chappelle’s Show airing continuously leading up to a midnight presentation of Chappelle’s classic debut stand-up special, Killin’ Them Softly. According to Comedy Central’s website, the marathon event even has a name, appropriately titled: “It’s a Celebration, Bitches!”
Chappelle’s previous Netflix specials, Deep in the Heart of Texas and The Age of Spin, were long awaited and ended up being 2 of the best of 2017. Over the past few days a few different clips from the new specials have surfaced, and appear to be potentially just as funny. So between Netflix and Comedy Central’s marathon, we should be able to end 2017 and enter 2018 with a ton laughter.
