Weekday Distraction: Netflix Announces Surprise Dave Chappelle Special

Dave Chappelle and Netflix are a match made in comedic heaven.

Today, the streaming service announced that it will release not one, but two stand-up specials featuring the Emmy Award-winning comedian on New Year's Eve. 

In addition to the previously announced Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, Netflix will also launch Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation on December 31, 2017.

Equanimity is "a stand-up event packed with scorching new material, self-reflection and tough love. Chappelle holds court in a special homecoming performance filmed in front of a packed house at the historic Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. ... The comedian hilariously revels in taking on culture and class, politics and the specter of getting old."

The Bird Revelation was filmed on November 20, 2017 at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

Equanimity and The Bird Revelation are Chappelle’s third and fourth comedy specials released exclusively on Netflix in 2017. 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 debuted earlier this year.
