Dave Chappelle has all the wits and jokes he needs to take over the whole planet––the universe if he wants to. This man is just too entertaining and just an overall badass.
One of the many products that the comedian has produced is Chappelle’s Show. If you haven’t seen it yet, then this news is catered specifically to you. One of, if not, the best comedy series of this century, Chappelle’s Show, will be streaming on Netflix and HBOMax. What a treat, am I right?
However, with two absolute monsters of the streaming world, both the streamers will be splitting the original Comedy Central re-runs of the series. This is because both streamers let out two separate deals––leading them to just get the best of both worlds where everybody wins.
“The best news you’ve heard all year: Chappelle’s Show is coming to Netflix US,” Netflix announced on their official @NetflixIsAJoke Twitter account.

Opposite from Netflix’s spectrum, HBOMax had a press release boasting their newly-acquired series from Comedy Central saying:
“Featuring stand-up, sketch comedy and musical performances, Dave Chappelle takes on culture with a no-holds-barred attitude. And with themes like race and fame at the forefront of the series, nothing is off-limits on ‘Chappelle’s Show.’“
Comedy Central aired Chappelle’s Show from the legendary years of 2003 to 2006. In 2005, however, Chappelle made headlines in the world as he walked away from the series after signs of stress and creative differences with Comedy Central. With that being said, 2006 saw but only three episodes.
As you may know, Chappelle took a long rest from entertainment––but people would still talk about him all over social media. In 2016, Chappelle took an absolutely humungous deal with Netflix for a whopping five stand-up specials for the streaming giant. Unsurprising, to say the least, but he’s reportedly making $20 million per comedy special.
Netflix offers Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin, and Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (a personal bias) on their libraries.
So the @DaveChappelle show is coming to Netflix and if this isn’t the best news ever idk what tf is
