Emmy Award-winning comedian Dave Chappelle is back with his third Netflix special of the year titled Equanimity. Although the special was filmed long before Congress voted on a bill that includes a 40 percent tax cut for corporations, Chappelle’s rhetoric is fitting for the times.
“I’ve never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorites. We’ve got a lot of trouble out of them. And I’ve never seen so many of them up close,” Chappelle said about some of 45’s supporters.
Dave Chappelle’s: Equanimity is the latest special in his “Netflix is a Joke” campaign. Chappelle’s previous features – which made history as they were the highest viewed comedy specials on the service – debuted earlier this year under the titles The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits.
The special performance was filmed in front of a packed house at Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., and highlights everything from culture, class, politics, and the specter of getting old.
Dave Chappelle’s: Equanimity debuts Sunday (Dec. 31) on Netflix. Watch the trailer below.
