Dave Chappelle is coming back to Netflix for his fifth comedy special on the streaming service. The special, titled Sticks & Stones, is set to drop later this month and serves as a follow up to Chappelle’s multiple stand-up specials that were released back in 2017.
On Thursday, August 15, Netflix dropped the first official trailer for the Sticks & Stones comedy special.
The trailer is narrated by the one and only Morgan Freeman.
“This is Dave,” Freeman said as Chappelle walks across a desert land “He tells jokes for a living. Hopefully, he makes people laugh. But these days, it’s a high stakes game. How did we get here, I wonder? I don’t mean that metaphorically. I’m really asking. How did Dave get here? I mean, what the f*ck is this? What do I know? I’m just Morgan Freeman. Anyway, I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you say anything, you miss everything. But if that’s the way it’s gotta be, f*ck it. He’s back, folks.”

Synopsis: “Legendary comedian Dave Chappelle is back with an all-new stand-up comedy special, Sticks & Stones, his fifth Netflix Original.”
In 2017, Chappelle dropped four stand-up specials despite his lucrative deal with Netflix only requiring three. The specials were titled The Age of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity, and The Bird Revelation.
“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital and now more than ever, essential,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of original documentary and comedy, in a statement when the deal with Netflix was first announced. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy, and we are honored he will mark his global return on Netflix.”
