  • And Another One: New Dave Chappelle Netflix Special 'The Bird Revelation' to Join 'Equanimity' on Dec. 31

"You are poor. He's fighting for me'".

How's this for a holiday gift: Dave Chappelle will be dropping not one, but two new stand-up specials on Netflix come New Years.

He also jokes about feeling sorry for poor white people who voted for U.S. President Donald Trump and think he's got their best interests at heart. In addition to the previously announced Netflix special Equanimity, the comedian is dropping a separate special titled The Bird Revelation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It all builds up to the reveal that Chappelle, who said he'd make America "wait" after Equanimity, actually had one more stand-up special in him. In the two-minute preview, Chappelle jokingly reveals he has no problem with white people, but admits that "poor whites" can sometimes get under his skin.

"To my surprise, you know what I didn't see?"

'I've never seen so many of them up close.

Chrome will start blocking 'intrusive' ads starting February 15
Google joined the Coalition for Better Ads , a group that publishes quality standards for display ads on the web, in 2017. In addition, FireFox browser also comes with extension to effectively block unwanted popups, popunders and overlay ads.


The deal expands Chappelle's relationship with Netflix, where his original deal included three specials.

'I saw some angry faces and some determined faces, but they felt like decent folk.

'And the only reason I know that is because I made so much money past year, the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party'.

This will cap a banner year for the comedian - the previous specials marked his first concert specials in 12 years and they rocketed to success, while he also won an Emmy in September for Outstanding Guest Actor for his work hosting a 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live.

In May, he reportedly told the audience at a charity benefit, "I was the first guy on TV to say, 'Give Trump a chance.' I f--ed up". He then goes on to describe how "poor white people" thought Trump would help them.
