Dave Chappelle’s new stand-up specials are now streaming on Netflix

Published Mar 21st, 2017 9:44AM EDT

Comedy legend Dave Chappelle is back, and he wants you to know that he… smokes cigarettes? As promised by the streaming giant alongside the release of a recent trailer, two new hour-long stand-up comedy specials starring the one and only Dave Chappelle have just been released on Netflix. The specials mark Chappelle’s first TV special since he quit his wildly successful Comedy Central show Chappelle’s Show more than a decade ago in 2006. Does Dave still have it? If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’re about to find out.

Netflix’s first two hour-long stand-up specials starring Chappelle were released simultaneously on Tuesday morning. The first, titled “The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at The Hollywood Palladium,” was recorded at the comedian’s first stand-up performance in Los Angeles in roughly a decade. The episode’s brief synopsis reads: “At his first LA show in 10 years, Chappelle charges straight into the fire with bits on Bill Cosby, O.J. Simpson and his own brushes with controversy.”

The second hour-long special, titled “Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits,” was recorded in Texas. Here’s the synopsis: “Chappelle gets real about racially charged run-ins, celebrity scandals and fatherly dilemmas in a searing stand-up set at Austin’s Moody Theater.”

Both of Chappelle’s hour-long stand-up specials are available to stream beginning immediately on this page on the Netflix website. For those who somehow haven’t yet seen Netflix’s official trailer for the comedy specials, you can watch it right here:
