Netflix Announces Two Dave Chappelle Comedy Specials on New Year's Eve

23 December 2017

On Wednesday, Dec. 20, the Republicans voted in favor of a sweeping tax bill that includes a 40% tax cut for corporations and isn't exactly created to help out the poor.

Dave Chappelle says he feels sorry for poor white Trump voters in new stand-up special on Netflix.

Ahead of the premiere of the two specials, Netflix has also unveiled a teaser trailer for both of them.

"And to my surprise, you know what I didn't see?"

Chappelle previously said he suspected Trump would win based on his conversations with neighbors, fans and others outside of the liberal coastal metropolises that backed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The comedian starts off by saying that he has never had a problem with white people in his life, but "poor whites" are his least favorite kind because of all the trouble they're causing. "You are poor - he's fighting for me!" I looked them right in their coal-smeared faces. "I know the game there".

Chappelle added that he made "so much money last year" that he got to rub elbows with rich white people, who he claims call poor white people "trash".

Earlier this year, Chappelle released two Netflix specials - The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits - which netted him $60 million and became the most watched stand-up specials in the company's history.

Expounding on their belief that Trump would help them once he was in office, the comic recalled overhearing a conversation among them while he stood in line to vote, taking this opportunity to shed some light on what Trump's true intentions were.

The new specials expand Chappelle's relationship with Netflix, where his original blockbuster deal in November included three specials.
