Dave Chappelle signs on with Netflix for three undeclared comedy specials

Dave Chappelle recently proved to the world once again why he is one of the best people in the comedic world on the Saturday Night Live post-election.

Dave was very candid about expressing the whole situation and even called out to Trump for giving everyone a chance in his regime as President. 

So Netflix took the chance and got the returning comedian to sign on for three unspecified projects for the network. Chappelle and director Stan Lathan will be working together to produce three comedy specials for the network.

Netflix VP of original documentary and comedy Lisa Nishimura in an official statement, “Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential. Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy.”

Netflix has been building up its comedy stints recently. It only signed on a two comedy special contract with Chris Rock who hosted the Oscars earlier this year.

The network has not specified the nature of the comedy specials and no release date has been announced for any of the projects. However, two unreleased specials from Chappelle’s vault will see release next year on the same date, but that date hasn’t been confirmed.

This can be seen as Chappelle’s more permanent return to TV as he moved away from the third season and the lucrative contract of “Chappelle’s Show” in 2005.

He made a return in 2013 as a stand-up comedian and ever since then, he has performed in about five hundred show in the past three years. People love him and the quick ticket sales are a testament to people’s love to see him. Netflix is definitely gearing up its comedy game.
