Excited though we were for a new Dave Chappelle special next week, Equanimity marked the last of his new Netflix material. Well, not anymore! A new trailer confirms that a fourth special will also be released in tandem with the New Year’s Eve debut.
There’s nothing strange about cozying up with a new Dave Chappelle special on New Year’s Eve, but there’s something Stranger about its first teaser. See for yourself, as the first look at Chappelle’s Equanimity gets turned up to Eleven.
As if Dave Chappelle turning in three new Netflix comedy specials weren’t news enough, you won’t even have to wait until April for the first two. A first teaser sets a March premiere for the apparently-soulful special, keeping Dave’s trend of dramatic intros.
No one knew quite what to expect from SNL after the 2016 election took a different course than predicted, though Kate McKinnon’s moving cold open and Dave Chappelle’s monologue offered a welcoming return. We even got to see some old Chappelle’s Show faces, but the most famous of all was apparently cut over Trump’s electoral win, says writer Neal Brennan.
If it seemed at all out of the blue that Dave Chappelle would suddenly take on SNL, there may have been an ulterior motive to reclaiming the spotlight. The former Chappelle’s Show star has now locked down not one, but three Netflix comedy specials, some of which will be released simultaneously.
