Dave Chappelle: Redemption Song

Chappelle’s Show is back on Netflix. No, really. Dave Chappelle himself made the announcement, so-to-speak, on Instagram posting a clip from his recent stand-up, “Redemption Song.” 

“I never asked Comedy Central for anything,” Chappelle explains in the stand-up. Instead, he went to his “real boss”: his fans. “I know where my power lies. I asked you to stop watching the show and, thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because, without your eyes, it’s nothing.” It wasn’t long before Netflix came calling, and Chappelle got his name and license back, besides the “millions of dollars.” 

Back in November—Remember 2020?—Netflix and HBO Max put Chappelle’s Show on streaming to fans’ delight and Chappelle’s chagrin. Never one to mince words, the comedian quickly called for fans to boycott streaming his show because he wasn’t getting paid. So that’s what fans did, and soon enough, Netflix and HBO pulled the series from streaming.

Currently recovering from a bout with “the rona,” don’t worry he’s doing better; Chappelle launched into skewering the perpetrators of last month’s Capitol Attack and the people who may have been happy he caught covid after months of holding stand-up shows with audiences, despite temperature checks and mandatory masks.

The clip ends with a heartwarming montage of the Chappelle’s Show’s most famous skits, including the “The Playa Haters Ball,” and the “True Hollywood Stories of Prince and Rick James.”

You can watch the full clip below and stream Chappelle’s Show on Netflix right now.
