Dave Chappelle will air his final stand-up special for Netflix next month.
His new comedy special, Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, will premiere on the streaming network on Dec. 31. The program will be his final project for Netflix as part of his three-special, $60 million deal. His previous specials, Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits, were the most-viewed specials in Netflix history.
Netflix posted a teaser for the special with some help from the network's hit series, Stranger Things. In the clip, the Demogorgon was no match for Eleven but Dave wanted in on the supernatural action. On a side note: the music playing in the background is the Wu-Tang Clan's "My Only One" from their fantastic compilation album, The Sage Continues.
Chappelle has had a great year so far. Dave performed two sold-out multi-show residencies in New York and Washington, D.C. He received an honorable citation from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the key to Washington, D.C., at his at his alma mater, Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
