Dave Chappelle Netflix Specials Get A March Release Date

Comedian Dave Chappelle has made himself scarce in recent years.

One day after Netflix dropped the first teaser for Amy Schumer's new comedy special on Netflix, the streaming service has unveiled a tantalizing teaser for Dave Chappelle's new stand-up specials as well.

"Age of Spin" was filmed in March 2016 in Los Angeles, while "Deep in the Heart of Texas" was filmed in April 2015 at Austin City Limits Live. He's reportedly making a whopping $60 million for all three installments.

With two specials premiering this month, that leaves one more on Chappelle's contract with Netflix.


The teaser previews some of the topics the stand-up comedian covers, and it sounds like he'll touch on a range of issues.

The moody, black and white shot and dramatic camera movement make it look more like a French drama than your usual stand-up comedy special trailer, but considering it's Chappelle's first comedy special since 2004, the drama is warranted. "I know I've been gone for a very long time", he begins before riffing on O.J. Simpson and Bigfoot.

The trailer, which doesn't reveal too much, features a voiceover of Chappelle alluding to numerous topics he will no doubt cover in his special - including OJ Simpson. But, what really makes the clip is how Chappelle is never seen speaking or looking into the camera. So far, the premiere date hasn't been revealed. He has starred in hit films like Robin Hood: Men in Tights, The Nutty Professor, and You've Got Mail, among others, as well as headlined - and later infamously walked away from - Chappelle's Show.
