Chappelle, 44, reportedly inked a deal previous year with Netflix worth $60 million dollars for a trio of comedy specials.
We knew Equanimity was coming. In addition to his two well-received specials, he also hosted the first Saturday Night Live episode following the 2016 presidential election. He recounts hearing people express their belief that the Republican candidate would go to Washington, D.C. and help the working class. Evan Valentine reviewed them, saying: "Dave Chappelle is back, rising like a phoenix from the ashes of his self imposed exile, with plenty of insight to share".
A previous trailer for Equanimity showedthe comic talking about President Donald Trump and poor white voters who voted for him. "I would like to think absolutely not", he said, later adding that he's "not an obstructionist of anybody's lifestyle, as long as it doesn't hurt me or people I love and I don't believe that lifestyle does".
"I've never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorites", he began the segment. And I've never seen so many of them up close.
"Equanimity" - which follows up "The Age of Spin" and "Deep in the Heart of Texas" - will debut December 31 on Netflix. Netflix is said to have paid Chappelle a whopping $60 million in total, which would entice us to come out of retirement as well.
