Netflix answers our prayers and announces that three Dave Chappelle stand up specials are on the way.
All praise to the most high - Dave Chappelle is returning to stand-up with three new comedy specials, and there aren't enough exclamation marks on this planet to express my excitement. It's been more than 11 years since Chappelle's last full length TV special "For What It's Worth" was released, and it's considered one of the finest stand up specials of all time. Dave has set the bar high for himself. The news of Chappelle's return arrived mysteriously via Netflix Twitter, with the following caption: "3 new Dave Chappelle comedy specials, coming soon."
