Although the production team is releasing no secrets, and keeping details of the projects under wraps, some sources feel they have a little entail.
A few surfacing reports believe we will first see Chappelle reunite with Stan Lathan for an original stand up special. Lathan has worked with Chappelle before, leading his past hits “Killin’ Them Softly” and “For What It’s Worth”.
Pitchfork reports the other two are from “Chappelle’s personal comedy vault” and were filmed at Austin City Limits Live, and the Hollywood Palladium.
This will be Dave Chappelle’s first TV special since 2004, “For What It’s Worth”.
