Dave Chappelle Dropping Two Stand-Up Specials on New Year’s Eve (TEASER)

As if a being blessed to see another year isn’t good enough, Dave Chappelle is set to release not one, but two full-length stand-up specials on Netflix just in time for the ball drop. The streaming service announced the New Year’s Eve double-play via press release Friday. In addition to the previously announced special Equanimity, the respected comic will also release the special The Bird Revelation.

Equanimity was filmed in September at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C.; The Bird Revelationwas filmed Nov. 20 at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

They will mark Chappelle’s third and fourth Netflix specials to be released this year. He has also released 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, though both of those were filmed prior to his deal with Netflix.

The first two marked Chappelle’s first released specials in over a decade. Netflix announced in November of 2016 that it had signed a blockbuster deal with husband and father to headline three stand-up specials, making this fourth quite the surprise . He also appeared in the Def Comedy Jam 25th anniversary special for Netflix earlier this year. Check out the teaser below.
