"Where the hell have you been, man?!"
That was exactly what I shouted at my TV when Dave Chappelle strolled out on stage in his new Netflix stand-up comedy special. After all, we've been waiting 10 goddamn years. I figured it was a very appropriate question to ask.
But never mind me, all you need to know is Dave Chappelle's new comedy special is finally here. For weeks, Netflix teased us with hilarious trailers that only subdued our craving for genuine laughter.
Here's the first trailer.
The trailers gave us a glimpse into the hilarity that would ensue on March 21. Thankfully, March 21 is here and we were blessed with not one, but TWO new specials from Mr. Chappelle.
Boy, does he have a lot to say!
Here's the second (official) trailer.
Now, I've already seen both of the specials, but don't worry, I personally don't believe in spoilers so I won't even go there. All you need to know is the 43-year-old comedy legend is back (and hopefully here to stay).
Chappelle showcases his effortlessly flawless stand-up technique by intertwining foul language and blatant, unapologetic realness while discussing all that's been on his mind during his hiatus.
In a combined 132 minutes, the funnyman responsible for introducing the world to Ashy Larry and "The Niggar Family" on Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show" reminds us of exactly what the world's been missing.
If you still need convincing of why you should set a couple of hours aside tonight, just leave it to the Twitter community!
And that doesn't even cover a fraction of everything else he's been holding in for a decade.
If you haven't already, I highly suggest you fire up that Netflix app, set your phone to "do not disturb" and witness comical greatness... You won't regret it!
