Dave Chappelle Reveals At Texas Show That Chappelle’s Show Is Back On Netflix
Just in time for the "polar vortex", we have some classic TV to stream to keep us entertained while we're stuck inside trying to stay warm thanks to comedian Dave Chappelle.
In a video he posted to his official Instagram account, the comedian at a recent stop at Austin's Stubb's BBQ revealed that "Chappelle's Show", his famed sketch show has returned to Netflix after it was pulled from the streaming service at his request.
In the 10 minute clip, Chappelle talks shortly about getting COVID and the backlash he received over it, his thoughts on the Capitol Siege before revealing the good news that ViacomCBS, the company which owned the license to Chappelle's Show, gave him the rights to the show and paid him "millions of dollars".
I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it's nothing, And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much - Dave Chappelle
The show was pulled from Netflix and HBO Max last year after appearing on the streaming services for just over a month. Chappelle stated that he wasn't receiving royalties from Comedy Central due to the contract he signed with them when the show first launched.
So if you're looking for me this weekend, I'll be at the crib enjoying Chappelle's Show under 100 blankets.
