After a decade of leaving "Chappelle's Show" midway through its third season, African American stand-up comedian and actor, Dave Chappelle, is back with two stand up specials on Netflix that released Tuesday. They are part of a three show deal that he had signed with Netflix last fall, reports said.

Chappelle had left his hit TV series and walked away from a $50 million deal in 2005, to explore Africa. He had told People in 2014: "I never stopped being on stage. What I did was step off of the main stage. ...Because those lights were hot, and I was trying to do other things with my life.” Ever since he quit from the show, his fans have been waiting for his return to television.
