After returning to TV for the post-election episode of Saturday Night Live, Dave Chappelle is taking the next step toward a career revival by delivering not one, not two, but three Netflix stand-up specials in 2017. “Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy–searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,” says Netflix VP Lisa Nishimura in a statement. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy.” While one of the specials will feature all-new material, the other two will reportedly be taken from Chappelle’s “personal comedy vault.” All three specials are expected to be released simultaneously and will mark Chappelle’s first concert specials in 12 years. Page Six adds that Chappelle will earn $60 million for the three specials!
