Netflix Broadcasts That The “Chappelle’s Present” Will Start Streaming On November 1st
Roommate, Netflix has just given sketch comedy fans an early Christmas present as it has just announced that Dave Chappelle’s iconic Chappelle’s Show will be streaming on the platform. From November 1st, fans of the show can sit back, relax and let off steam when all the episodes are right at hand.
In an announcement that is sure to make 2020 a little easier, “Chappelle’s Show” will be available for streaming on both Netflix and HBO Max starting November 1st. This means that the acclaimed sketch show will be available for both streaming services for the first time. The sketch comedy series starred by comedian Dave Chappelle and originally aired on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006.
“Chappelle’s Show” spawned numerous popular sketches, including Prince, who played Lil Jon basketball, and Rick James, possibly the most famous sketch. Dave Chappelle left the show in 2005 due to stress and creative control issues after the turbulence behind the scenes on the set.
On Netflix, the show will be part of a collection of Dave Chappelle’s stand-up specials that have helped cement his career comeback in recent years. The latest special, last year’s “Sticks & Stones”, sparked controversy over Chappelle’s treatment of “cancel culture” but still won a Grammy Award for best comedy album and an Emmy for the outstanding variety special.
Meanwhile, “Chappelle’s Show” is coming to HBO Max as part of a larger deal with Comedy Central, which also includes “Key & Peele” and “Reno 911!” to the streaming service.
