He has starred in hit films like Robin Hood: Men in Tights, The Nutty Professor, and You've Got Mail, among others, as well as headlined - and later infamously walked away from - Chappelle's Show. Chappelle's renowned "The Chappelle Show" ran on Comedy Central for three seasons, and numerous clips and segments from the show on YouTube have received millions of hits.

So take a look at the brief Netflix teaser below. Chappelle is now on the road doing concert dates in preparation for a third Netflix special. The first of these, Amy Schumer's The Leather Special, is set to drop in early March.
