Dave Chappelle’s Comedy Specials On Netflix Today

Dave Chappelle’s exit from his popular TV show in 2005 for personal and political reasons left industry people and many fans stunned because no comedian has ever walked away from success because of ethics. After leaving the show he returned to stand-up comedy, appeared in Spike Lee’s Chiraq and hosted Saturday Night Live when A Tribe Called Quest returned with new music in 2016. The Netflix specials directed by Stan Lathan come the closest to an official comeback for Chappelle and should inspire more comedians to explore the art of stand-up comedy. Both nights of shows from 2015 and 2016 are now streaming on Netflix.
