Surprise! Dave Chappelle is returning to Netflix with “Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones,” a brand new comedy special that drops Aug. 26.
Watch the trailer, narrated by Morgan Freeman (who does say the f-word) above:
While the trailer contains absolutely no footage from the new comedy show, it does see Chappelle wandering through a bleak desert while Morgan Freeman delivers some highly dramatic voice over. “This is Dave. He tells jokes for a living. Hopefully he makes people laugh,” Freeman says. “But, these days it’s a high stakes game. How did we get here, I wonder? I don’t mean that metaphorically, I’m really asking. How did Dave get here?”
“I mean, what the f— is this?” Freeman blurts out.
Of course, the camera continues to follow Chappelle as he walks through what looks to be some punishing desert heat and bleak, arid sand.
“But, what do I know, I’m just Morgan Freeman. Anyway, I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you say anything, you risk everything. But, if that’s the way it’s got to be, fine. F— it. He’s back, folks.”
“Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones” is the comedian’s first new comedy show since the four he released practically back-to-back, including “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” for which he landed the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (pre-recorded).
