Dave Chappelle is giving fans one more handful of laughs before 2017 comes to a close. Following his return to mainstream stand-up earlier this year with a pair of specials that premiered on Netflix back in March, the popular streaming service announced on Friday that Chappelle will release not one, but two specials set to debut on New Year’s Eve next Sunday.
The announcement video, which can be watched in the clip above, features footage from two of Dave’s professionally shot performances in Washington DC back in September, and Los Angeles in November. The promotional footage shows the veteran comic talking about hanging out with rappers, growing up with his white friends and more hilarious stories that only Dave can get away with. Chappelle also reveals towards the end of the clip that his Los Angeles show will be his final special for a long time, so fans better not miss out when he takes the screened-stage again one final time in 2017.
While fans are busy watching his stand-up specials on Dec. 31, the comedian will be in Los Angeles preparing for his co-headlining “Controlled Danger” show at The Forum alongside guitarist John Mayer. The performance will feature the two entertainers each doing what they do best, in addition to them both sharing the stage together in hopes of sending 2017 off on a good note (and joke).
Chappelle and Mayer have performed together a few times in 2017. The first came during the guitarist’s surprise acoustic gig in Los Angeles back in January, then again during a concert in Columbus as a part of Mayer’s Search For Everything Tour when the two took the stage to share memories of comedian Charlie Murphy, who had just passed away that day.
