Dave Chappelle Takes on Trump Voters in Netflix ‘Equanimity’ Clip
Dave Chappelle was a voice of reason after the 2016 election, and you can bet he has more to say. Our first clip from his 2017 Netflix special Equanimity has arrived, as the comedian looks back on his experience voting alongside Trump supporters.
Ahead of its New Year’s Eve release, Netflix shared the first official clip from Chappelle’s third standup special; the final ordered under his 2016 deal, and the only one specifically shot for the streaming service. The clip itself arrives at a timely moment, as Chappelle recalls conversing with a Trump voter who believed the real-estate tycoon would fight for people at his income level. Here’s the full Equanimity synopsis:
Emmy Award-winning comedy titan Dave Chappelle is capping a banner year with a stand-up event packed with scorching new material, self-reflection and tough love. Chappelle holds court in a special homecoming performance filmed in front of a packed house at the historic Warner Theater in Washington D.C. In “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” the comedian hilariously revels in taking on culture and class, politics and the specter of getting old.
You can watch the initial Stranger Things-themed teaser below, and stay tuned for the full release on December 31.
