It’s been ten years since Chris Rock’s last televised stand-up special, with HBO’s Kill the Messenger taking home two Emmy Awards. The comic genius is finally ready to drop his next masterpiece, announcing that Netflix special, Chris Rock: Tamborine, will drop at midnight on Valentine’s Day.
The Brooklyn native shared the news via Instagram.
Tamborine is the first of two Netflix comedy specials to come from Rock. The comedy giant signed an impressive $40 million deal with the streaming giant for two stand-up specials back in 2016. Since his 2008 special, the father of two has directed an Amy Schumer special, hosted the Oscars and guest starred on Fox hit, EMPIRE.
