Dave Chappelle’s third Netflix stand-up special finally has an official release date, and the announcement comes in the form of a Stranger Things parody. Most of the footage was seen in the streaming giant’s “Netflix is a Joke” campaign, but this time around it ends with a title and release date for Chappelle’s special.
Titled Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, the new stand-up special is poised to release December 31, following up Chappelle’s The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits earlier this year. He also appeared in the Def Comedy Jam 25th anniversary special for Netflix earlier this year.
Equanimity will be the first special Chappelle has produced exclusively for Netflix, as the original two specials for the streaming service came from his own personal vault.
