Comedian and actor Dave Chappelle is allowing Netflix to bring back his classic “Chappelle’s Show” sketch comedy, months after the streaming service removed the show due to his feud with ViacomCBS.
Netflix To Put ‘Chappelle’s Show’ Back On
During a stand-up performance he posted on Instagram, Dave Chappelle revealed that he’d given Netflix his blessing to put “Chappelle’s Show” back in its library. Chappelle had been battling with ViacomCBS to get paid for the rights to the show, which originally aired from 2003-06.
“I asked you (the fans) to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”
Dave Chappelle Tests Positive For COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic is hitting everybody hard. Chappelle came forward to reveal he tested positive for the virus and canceled a slew of socially-distanced shows.
A rep for the comedian tells us Dave is currently quarantined after the positive test, but he has not yet experienced any symptoms. Dave performed the first of 5 shows in Austin Wednesday night with others scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (TMZ)
Joe Rogan Speaks On Chappelle’s COVID-19 Situation
Two of Chappelle’s now-canceled shows were slated to feature appearances from popular entertainer Joe Rogan. The pair recently also posted up with billionaire Elon Musk and Grimes in Texas. With that being said, Rogan has spoken out on the situation and let it be known he was healthy and that Grimes didn’t spread the virus.
“Because people are asking. I was not exposed to the person who had covid and I have tested negative every day this week. Also, the person that gave covid to Dave was NOT Elon’s partner, Grimes.”
Grammys Delayed Due To COVID-19
The Grammy Award ceremony isn’t going down this month. The Recording Academy has issued a statement announcing the shocking setback and delay in its annual televised ceremony. The organization went online to break the shocking news to the world. The current coronavirus pandemic has forced its decision to push the event to mid-March 2021.
“After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. “
