Netflix Announces Three New Dave Chappelle Comedy Specials Are Underway

posted by Oscar November 21, 2016

dave-chappelle-netflix

You read that right! That headline is not clickbait… Netflix took to their social accounts to announce that they will be releasing three new comedy specials by the one and only, Dave Chappelle. The release dates for these are yet to be announced, as all we get with the news was a “coming soon.”

According to Pitchfork, Chappelle’s follow-ups to 2004’s Dave Chappelle: For What It’s Worth will include an original set filmed exclusively for Netflix and two specials drawn from “Chappelle’s personal comedy vault,” which were filmed at Austin City Limits Live and the Hollywood Paladium.

Dave Chappelle made his return to the mainstream earlier this month as the host of Saturday Night Live, which included over 10 minutes of stand-up. See that here.

Louis CK Announces New Special: “Live at the Comedy Store”

posted by Oscar January 27, 2015

One of the world’s greatest comedians today has released another special. Louis CK today unveiled his latest standup special and it’s called Louis CK Live at the Comedy Store.

Louis had revolutionized the game by releasing his own projects independently directly on his site for only $5. In an email sent to his mailing list, Louis explains:

 I skipped doing one last year and I missed it. This one is different from the recent others.  For one thing, it was shot in a nightclub instead of a theater. I love doing the theater shows… But Nightclubs, comedy clubs, is where comedy is born and where comedy, standup comedy, truly lives.

The rest of the email is a long and extensive look into Louis’ history as a comedian and his journey so far, also going into why he chose The Comedy Store because it is, as he puts it, “the only club in the country that NEVER passed me when I auditioned.”

Buy it now for only $5 over at Louis’ website, louisck.net.

Jeselnik, perhaps best known for his appearances in multiple “Roast” specials on Comedy Central, is a sometimes-controversial comedian that knows all too well how to make people cringe with his jokes, but that’s exactly what makes him great.

Jeselnik’s new comedy special, Caligula, will premiere worldwide this coming January 13 on Comedy Central, airing at 10/9c.

See the clip above to get a glimpse at what you can expect from the standup special and pre-order the new album, Caligula, on iTunes here: tinyurl.com/awhhkob
