The upcoming special wraps up a body of work for Chappelle which includes The Age Of Spin, Deep In The Heart Of Texas, Equanimity, The Bird Revelation, and Sticks & Stones.
While little new material is shown in the trailer, it looks to strike a similar chord to his previous work.
Here it is:
The Netflix synopsis reads:
“As he closes out his slate of comedy specials, Dave takes the stage to try and set the record straight — and get a few things off his chest.”
The Closer will be directed by Stan Lathan, who besides being the director and producer behind every Netflix special Chappelle has released to date, was also the co-creator of the Def Comedy Jam franchise with Russell Simmons, and is father to actor Sanaa Lathan.
The press release from Netflix, along with the title, teases this may be the last of Chappelle’s stand-up comedy specials, though it’s not clear if this is merely the final chapter of this string of content.
Meanwhile, over the summer, Foo Fighters brought Dave Chappelle on stage for a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ during their gig at Madison Square Garden.
The Closer comes to Netflix tomorrow October 5th.
