Dave Chappelle is headed to Netflix.
The stand-up comic has set three new stand-up comedy specials at the streaming giant, it was announced Monday.
Chappelle and director Stan Lathan will produce an original stand-up comedy special exclusively for Netflix, with its premiere date to be announced. The two other never-before-seen specials hail directly from Chappelle’s personal comedy vault. Directed by Lathan and filmed at Austin City Limits Live in April 2015 and the Hollywood Palladium in March 2016, the specials mark the comedian’s first concert specials in 12 years and are slated to be released simultaneously in 2017.
“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,” Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP, original documentary and comedy, said. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy, and we are honored he will mark his global return on Netflix.”
