Everyone’s favorite funnyman Dave Chappelle is back with another all-new stand-up comedy special called Sticks & Stones, which drops on Netflix on August 26th. For those of you out there keeping count, this makes for his fifth Netflix Original. Can we say ka-ching?!
While I wish that Dave would bring back Chappelle Show, these comedy specials of his are the next best thing. It’s been a year and a half since his last comedy special, and this time around he’s pushing the boundaries, giving his provocative perspective on the tidal wave of celebrity scandals, the opioid crisis, and more — in trademarked Chappelle fashion.
The trailer above doesn’t let on much, showing Dave walking in the desert as Morgan Freeman voices over about the current climate of comedy and Internet culture. “If you say anything, you risk everything.” Ironically, YouTube commenters were more concerned about his long ass shirt than anything else.
Chappelle has been known to “go there”, often taking flack for his comments. And given the Sticks & Stones title, we’re guessing he’s not pulling any punches this time around either.
August 26th can’t get here soon enough!
