Chappelle stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live
Yesterday, Dave Chappelle made his return, releasing two simultaneous shows for Netflix – The Age of Spin: Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Live at Austin City Limits.
The comedy specials marked his first in over 13 years, which were both well-received by the public. The streaming giant soon suffered network stability issues, due to initial overwhelming traffic; which explains why they immediately offered him $65 million for three specials.
Hours after the buzz for his specials, Chappelle made a stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live to briefly explain why he returned to the stage and adjusting to balancing fame again. Watch more from the conversation above, where he explains his new no-phone policy for stand-up shows, doing a recent show with LeBron James and potentially meeting O.J. Simpson for a fifth time.
