Netflix has revealed that Dave Chappelle‘s two comedy specials—his first since 2004’s For What It’s Worth—are set to drop on March 21. They are part of a three-special, $60 million deal between the comedian and the streaming behemoth that were announced last November. That announcement came a week after his Saturday Night Live hosting gig, where he notably brought back his Chappelle’s Show characters for a skit and had A Tribe Called Quest as musical guests.

The streaming services also tweeted a teaser that flashes Chappelle’s trademark socio-political punchlines (“If Martin Luther King had a sneaker deal, we’d still be in the back of the bus”) while hinting a bit at more personal material (“I’m black…But I’m also Dave Chappelle”). Watch it below.
