The beloved comic is planning a new TV show with a paid subscription service like Netflix, Sony’s Crackle, or Hulu, which are now competing in the original programming game, a plugged-in source told Flash... More recently, Chappelle has been dropping by comedy clubs from Los Angeles to San Francisco for surprise standup gigs, calling himself the “Big Foot of Comedy” because “you never know when he’s going to show up”... A source at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory said Chappelle has been trying out fresh material: “It’s all new. He started off talking about his career and what he’s going to do now, because someone like him can’t do ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ He’s obviously working on some new project.”

As already reported, it'll be out in the USA on July 29th! I still haven't seen it yet, despite all the preview screenings that have taken place in the last few weeks. No time. But I hope to see it before July 29th, so I can share my own thoughts. Thus far, all my usual trusted sources who have seen the film praise it heavily! So, my expectations are high! Though, maybe I should lower them a bit.

I first profiled this film in March on the old site; at the time, I couldn't find an official synopsis, so wasn't entirely sure what it was about; although I did post a teaser trailer that gave us some idea - a teaser that's since been taking down, but, thankfully, it was replaced with a new one, which I embedded below.
