Chap­pelle to un­leash 3 Net­flix com­edy spe­cials in 2017

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Co­me­dian Dave Chap­pelle is headed back to TV with his first con­cert spe­cials in a dozen years — a trio of spe­cials to be re­leased on Net­flix si­mul­ta­ne­ously in 2017.

No ex­act date was given by Net­flix, which said one of the spe­cials is be­ing pro­duced ex­clu­sively for the net­work. Two ad­di­tional never-be­fore-seen spe­cials “come di­rectly from Chap­pelle’s per­sonal com­edy vault,” Net­flix said.

Chap­pelle’s com­edy ca­reer in­cludes movie roles in “The Nutty Pro­fes­sor,” “Con Air” and “Blue Streak.” In 2003, he achieved height­ened fame and crit­i­cal ac­claim as mas­ter­mind of his Com­edy Cen­tral sketch series, “Chap­pelle’s Show,” un­til his abrupt exit in its third sea­son.

Ear­lier this month, he made his host­ing de­but on “Satur­day Night Live,” mix­ing one-lin­ers with se­ri­ous jabs at race re­la­tions and politics.
