Dave Chappelle Is Returning To Netflix To Host And Produce Four New Comedy Specials

Daily Caller

Dave Chappelle is returning to Netflix to host and produce four new comedy specials following an outcry over his comments about the LGBTQ community in his last special on the site, “The Closer.”

“I’ve been doing this a long time and comedians like [comedian Earthquake] and Donnell [Rawlings] are not only friends but have inspired my own career,” the 48-year-old comedian told the Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Friday.

“Anyone in the comedy community knows these names and knows their time to shine is long overdue,” he added. “I am proud to be a part of this moment.”

The series, titled “Chappelle’s Home Team,” will consist of Chappelle introducing different comics like the comedian known as Earthquake, Nathaniel Martin Stroman, Rawlings and more. The one thing all the comedy stars have in common is that they’ve all been in the stand-up business for at least 30 years, the outlet noted.
