Chapelle’s Show to Return to Netflix
Dave Chapelle grew up in Silver Spring, attending Woodlin Elementary School before attending Duke Ellington School of the Arts in DC.
His show, Chapelle’s Show, was removed from Netflix after the comedian requested the popular streaming service do so due to a previous agreement with Comedy Central that didn’t allow him to collect royalties.
In an Instagram post titled Redemption Song, Chapelle said the following:
“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,” Chappelle told the audience. “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.”
The show is expected to be back on the streaming service very soon.
