Dave Chappelle has been declared as one of the best comedians by none other than the iconic Kevin Hart. After Chappelle’s stand-up specials garnered immense success on Netflix, the streaming platform has dropped the trailer for his upcoming special The Closer.
The special is supposed to premiere on the streaming platform on 5th October, 2021.
Chapelle rose to prominence on the rip-roaring The Chapelle Show. His jokes are rich in humour, with his wit reeking of irony and satire as he presents a scathing commentary on everything from systemic racism to politics and scandalous celebrity sex scandals.
Finding fame with his impeccable sketch comedy, Chappelle has now focused solely on the stage. But that doesn’t mean his past doesn’t help him along the way and, as such, his humour is quite zany, and Chapelle isn’t scared of offending his audience.
The special was shot in Detroit and will be the sixth comedy special of Chappelle’s, following The Age of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity, The Bird Revelation and Sticks & Stones, all of which amassed multiple Emmy nominations and awards for the comedian as well as director, Stan Lathan.
Chappelle also received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour in 2019 from Kennedy Center which is one of the highest honours bestowed on a comedian. The teaser talks about how comedians have the “responsibility to speak recklessly” leading up to his final chapter.
The new teaser trailer promises a fresh set of hilarity with scathing jokes and commentary, with a special dash of Chappelle’s quintessential humour attacking the racism pervading the United States.
