Netflix announced Wednesday that the third and final special, Equanimity, will premiere Dec. 31., and released a teaser clip. From the nature of his featured joke—which lovingly roasts the poor, white Trump voter—it seems like Chappelle may be approaching the current political climate with a little more nuance this time around. Or maybe it’s just a really well-picked teaser.
The comedian’s first two specials with the streaming giant, which were released in March, drew some criticism for jokes about Bill Cosby, trans people, and giving President Donald Trump “a chance,” but they were also the streaming platform’s “most viewed” original standup ever. Netflix is notoriously tight-lipped about sharing numbers, but the superstar comedian is rumored to have been paid a whopping $60 million for the deal. It’s a number that reportedly inspired Amy Schumer to renegotiate her own pay with the streaming service.
The two-hour-long sets were live shows Chappelle had recorded in 2015 and 2016, but this final one seems like it will be a little different. A little more timely, maybe.
Here Chappelle makes light of his newfound access to “the rich whites” now that he’s entered a different tax bracket.
“Rich white people call poor white people trash,” Chappelle explains in the teaser. “And the only reason I know that is because I made so much money last year, the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party.”
