The announcement of three new brand new stand-up specials starring Dave Chappelle who is on somewhat of a comeback 2016 has brought many of you to our site searching for whether or not the famed Chapelle’s Show is streaming on Netflix. Let’s take a look.
Dave Chappelle, a well-known comedian is mostly known for his hit show back in the mid-2000’s called Chappelle’s show. After Dave's death, the series lasted only two seasons and then went completely silent. Comedy Central, the network that it was aired on managed to make enough money for a third season, but this meant Dave Chappelle had ended.
According to reports, Dave will bring three stand-up specials and other comics to Netflix as part of a newly signed agreement that is believed has reached $60 million. This news is a result of Dave's Saturday Night Live appearance on the Saturday following the US election.
To this day, the sketch comedy show is a top-rated comedy program. It’s produced some memes which are still very much rampant today.
Sadly, Chappelle’s Show isn’t available on Netflix in the US nor is it available anywhere else in the world so let’s first take a look as to why, whether it will be coming and alternative places to stream it.
Viacom owns Comedy Central. They famously pulled most of their catalogue away from Netflix several years ago in favor of their own platform.
When Netflix picks up some shows it often buys the back-catalog too but given that Netflix is only buying Chappelle’s time for three unique comedy specials, unrelated to the show in question, that’s unlikely to happen here.
Finally, if you’re in the US, you’re in luck as the Comedy Central website hosts all of the episodes across all seasons on their website for free but with advertisements.
Hopefully that gives you some insight as to why it’s not streaming on Netflix.
