Before hosting the highest rated episode of Saturday Night Live in three years, Dave Chapelle seemed to have fell off our radar.
Now the comedian known for his outlandish and revealing sketch comedy show has reportedly signed a deal with Netflix to release three stand-up comedy specials, earning 20 million for each special.

According to reports, Lisa Nishimura, Netflix’s VP of original documentary and comedy mentioned:
“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential. Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy.”
Congrats Dave! Now can we borrow 20 bucks?
