Chappelle’s Show is a 2003 sketch comedy show starring the renowned comedian David Chappelle. The show got two seasons and was a huge success. It has a whopping score of 8.8/10 on IMDb and a 93% average audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Recently it was announced that this classic will be aired on Netflix from 1 November 2020! The deal between them is “non-exclusive”, meaning you can watch the show in other streaming platforms as well (e.g. HBO MAX). Right now, it is available to be streamed only in the USA.
Netflix doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to sketching comedy. The only to hit sketch comedy shows have been “I Think I Should Leave with Tim Robinson” and “The Iliza Shelsinger Sketch Show”. This new entry would be a huge deal for sketch comedy lovers.
Also, this is not the first time Dave Chappelle has collaborated with Netflix. He has had many of his shows special such as The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium, Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits, Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation, Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones and Dave Chappelle: 8:46.
All of these have been a huge success for him. Let’s hope “Chappelle’s Show” gets an equally warm welcome from the audience despite its somewhat racial humor.
We hope this article made your day!
