Here's a hilarious 2-minute clip from Dave Chappelle's Netflix special "Equanimity."
Netflix is getting ready to release Dave Chapelle’s forthcoming stand-up special "Equanimity," which will be available to stream starting New Year’s Eve. But before it arrives, the streaming platform has gone ahead and shared a new clip from the segment ahead of time, and it's pretty hilarious.
Filmed at the Warner Theater in his hometown of Washington, D.C., Dave delivers another brutally honestly take on race, class, capitalism and the realities of getting old. In the two-minute preview (below), Dave jokes about not having any problems with white people, but admits that "poor whites" can sometimes get under his skin. He brings his point home with references to the Trump administration and discoveries he’s made while rubbing elbows with some of the most rich and important people in the world.
This upcoming Equanimity special will be Dave’s 3rd Netflix airing in the past year. Back in March, he delivered "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." Both specials were widely anticipated, though he came under fire for a few jokes on the topics of trans people and sexual assault.
No word yet if Dave & Netflix will continue their partnership after this 3rd special, but hopefully they do.
Check out the 2-minute clip (below) and stay tuned for the NYE release via Netflix. If you don’t have Netflix yet, do yourself the favor & sign up for it right here for only $10.99 a month (depending on your monthly package). It's definitely worth it.
