Netflix releases preview of upcoming Dave Chappelle specials

Netflix released on Tuesday a trailer promoting two upcoming stand-up comedy specials featuring Dave Chappelle which will be aired on the online streaming service beginning on March 21. 

The specials are highly anticipated as it is the first time Chappelle has filmed a comedy special in more than a decade. In December, Netflix announced that it had agreed to air three Chappelle comedy specials. With two programs being released next week, Netflix and Chappelle are in production for a third special. 

The two stand-up specials were filmed in Los Angeles and Austin, Texas. According to the trailer released on Tuesday, Chappelle is mixing in jokes that are topical, with ones that could be considered classic. Chappelle jokes about the Islamic State, as well as the late Nicole Brown Simpson.

Chappelle's last stand-up special was "Dave Chappelle: For What It's Worth," which was released in 2004.After his television program "Chappelle's Show" went on hiatus in 2006, Chappelle spent nearly a decade away from television.

Late in 2016, Chappelle made his "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut.
