Dave Chappelle is returning to Netflix with another stand-up special--and this time he's got Morgan Freeman to back him up.
Chappelle's fifth Netflix special, his latest in a reportedly blockbuster $60 million deal, is called Sticks & Stones. In this trailer Morgan Freeman narrates as Chappelle swaggers across a salt flat in leather pants, aviator shades and a remarkably long t-shirt.
“If you say anything, you risk everything,” Freeman intones in his famous baritone. “But if that’s the way it’s gotta be, okay, fine, fuck it. He’s back, folks.”
We don't get any snippets of the actual stand-up special itself. The official Netflix description drops a few hints:
Unflinching and boundary-pushing, Dave gives his provocative perspective on the tidal wave of celebrity scandals, the opioid crisis, and more -- in trademarked Chappelle fashion.
Sounds like a must-watch to us. Dave Chappelle’s Sticks & Stones starts streaming on August 26 on Netflix.
