Dave Chappelle Rips on ISIS and O.J. in New Netflix Specials Trailer

Earlier this month we were treated to a very simple 30 second teaser for Dave Chappelle’s upcoming comedy specials on Netflix. The teaser featured a black and white video of Chappelle sitting down smoking a cigarette. In the background you could hear him doing a little bit of his routine. Today we’re being treated to much more than that.  In only one week Netflix is releasing two hour long standup comedy specials with Chappelle and they’ve allowed us a bit more detail with the newest trailer.

Chappelle does not shy away from the absurdities of the modern world, integrating anecdotes about watching ISIS beheadings on YouTube and meeting the now-up-for-parole O.J. Simpson, but also going back to certain staples. “You know what kills more black people than anything? More than police and terrorism?” he asks his audience. “Salt.” According to Variety

The two specials, which were self-financed and produced by Chappelle and then acquired from Netflix, were filmed in Austin at Austin City Limits and Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium. A third Chappelle comedy special made specifically for Netflix is also in the works, with Chappelle and director Stan Lathan.

I couldn’t be more excited to watch these if I tried.  Check out the new trailer below:
