Dave Chappelle’s Third Netflix Stand-Up Special Sets Release Date

Dave Chappelle’s third Netflix stand-up special has an official release date, the streaming service announced Friday.

Titled “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” the new special from the acclaimed comedian will launch on Netflix on Dec. 31. He released the specials “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” on Netflix earlier this year.

“Equanimity” will be the first special Chappelle has produced exclusively for Netflix, with the other two specials coming from his personal vault. The first two marked Chappelle’s first released specials in over a decade. He also appeared in the “Def Comedy Jam” 25th anniversary special for Netflix earlier this year.

Chappelle earned rave reviews when the first two specials were released, with Variety’s Maureen Ryan writing:

“The comic’s unexpected swerves and inspired segues are often the best thing about the specials: They add suspense, because you never really know what he’s going to say about Key and Peele, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart or the Care Bears, or where those comments will land on the sincerity scale (though it’s not a stretch to conclude that Chappelle really does love the Care Bears). Leaning against a speaker or perching on a stool, Chappelle looks utterly relaxed, and has the great, unforced timing of someone who knows exactly where his routine is headed and how he’ll get there.”
