Netflix Announces Three New Dave Chappelle Comedy Specials Are Underway

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.

Video: See The Best Moments of Dave Chappelle on ‘SNL’

posted by Oscar November 13, 2016

Dave Chappelle returned to mainstream TV last night as the guest host of Saturday Night Live. The comic genius was host of SNL for his very first time, and the stand-up legend kicked things off with a 10 minute monologue doing what he does best. The opening monologue largely focused on Donald Trump being elected president of our country, delivering the line “We’ve actually elected an internet troll as our president.” Chappelle also talked about why he’s going to ride out this Trump presidency with the benefit being a rich man considering the tax cuts coming his way. But it wasn’t all jokes, as Chappelle concluded his monologue talking about how Obama did a good job as leader of the free world and then shared a bit of history of African Americans and their relationship with the White House prior to Obama’s presidency. Finally, he left us with these sobering lines: “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance. And we the historically disenfranchised demand that he gives us one too.”

The rest of the show was highlighted by Chappelle reviving some of his best Chappelle’s Show characters in a The Walking Dead skit featuring Tyrone Biggums, Lil’ Jon, Clayton Bigsby, and Silky Johnson recreating the famous Negan scene. It contains spoilers!! See more below Continue Reading

Video: Dave Chappelle Sings Radiohead’s “Creep” at Erykah Badu’s Birthday Party

posted by Oscar April 25, 2016

Dave Chappelle helped Erykah Badu celebrate her 45th birthday and he did so by Radiohead’s “Creep” at her party. It’s no surprise that Chappelle doesn’t have the greatest of singing voices, but it’s still pretty cool to see him do this song in particular along with the fact that Badu and others join in on the singing.
