Dave Chappelle Working on a New Show
Dave Chappelle is planning his first show since shutting down Comedy Central’s Chapelle’s Show in 2005, according to The Daily. The controversial comedian does not want to return to network television, however, and is instead opting to air the show on a subscription service such as Netflix, Crackle or Hulu.
Many were shocked six years ago when Chappelle walked away from his old show and a $50 million dollar contract. Citing a lack of creative freedom, he instead opted to take a two-week pilgrimage to Africa before returning to the States for a string of stand-up gigs.
No word yet on which service will host the new show, but the new project will no doubt be on the comic’s terms.
