Comedian/Actor DAVE CHAPPELLE has been away a long time!!!
Before the third season of The Chappelle Show aired in 2005, he famously walked away from a $50 million contract from Comedy Central. After that, Chappelle became reclusive, making few public appearances before he made a rocky return to stand-up in 2013. In November, his big TV comeback began with a triumphant job hosting Saturday Night Live the weekend after Donald Trump was elected
Now, he's announced the release date for two Netflix stand-up specials, his first since 2004's What It's Worth. They'll both premiere on March 21, and Thursday,, we got a first look at the specials. "I know I've been gone for a very long time," he begins before riffing on MLK, OJ, and BIGFOOT.
According to reports, Netflix gave Chappelle $60 million for the two specials—almost making it worth breaking that Comedy Central contract.
