The Chappelle's Show mastermind joins the likes of Dana Carvey, Michael Che, Reggie Watts, Ali Wong, John Mulaney, Aziz Ansari, Iliza Shlesinger, and Jen Kirkman, among other comedians who have turned to Netflix as their distributor of choice. The news also comes on the heels of a deal that had Chris Rock promise the internet network two specials of his own, a move that, along with Chappelle's, cements Netflix's status as a comedic content titan.
"It's been a long time," Chappelle said of his return to TV, when he took the Studio 8H stage last week. "It's been a long time, so please be patient." If SNL was any indication, this too will be worth the wait.
