Chappelle’s Show is indeed accessible to stream on Netflix.
In a 10-minute video called “Reclamation Song” on Thursday, Dave Chappelle, 47, said the sketch satire arrangement would return to the streaming stage Friday February, a year after it was removed at his request.
“Chappelle’s Show,” which aired on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006, was pulled from Netflix in November due to Chappelle’s compensation and authorization request with Viacom CBS, the parent organization of Comedy Central.

He continued: ‘I asked you to stop watching the show and express your gratitude to God who is almighty for you, you did. You made that show useless in light of the fact that without your eyes it is nothing. And when you stopped watching, they called me. “
Chappelle, who suddenly left the show in 2005, said he got his ‘name’, his ‘license’ and his ‘show’ back due to the blacklist, adding that the new arrangement earned him ‘a lot of dollars’.
The entertainer at the time thanked Netflix’s co-CEO Ted Sarandon for eliminating ‘Chappelle’s Show’ in 2020 after asking, despite it being a ‘monetary depreciation’ for the streaming phase.
Chappelle also thanked Chris McCarthy, the leader of Viacom CBS’s MTV Entertainment Group, for having an “ interest in making the previous right. ”
“Finally, after so long, I can finally say to Comedy Central,” It was a pleasure to work with you, “he said.
In a proclamation to USA Today, McCarthy said, “Dave Chappelle is probably the best comic in recent memory and a distinctive voice of the Comedy Central brand. After speaking with Dave, I am glad we had the opportunity to make amends. “
“Chappelle’s Show” is also available to stream on HBO Max, which it recently eliminated by the end of 2020.
Speaking in November 2020 as host of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Chappelle said both Netflix and HBO Max were streaming “Chappelle’s Show” without paying him.
The entertainer said he was thinking about what his incredible grandfather, who was brought into the oppressed world in South Carolina, would say if he saw Chappelle now.
“ In case he could see me now, presumably he would look like, ‘This one – bought and sold more than I did,’ ” he joked.
Not long after his facilitation performance on “SNL,” Chappelle shared an Instagram video called “Unforgiven,” in which he said Viacom did not notify CBS of plans to allow the show.
“I found these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never had to give me advice,” he said, continuing, “Completely legal by virtue of having marked the agreement. that? I didn’t think the same way. “
