Dave Chappelle is making quite an entrance on Netflix.

The streaming giant will begin streaming not one but two of Chappelle's stand-up specials Tuesday, March 21. 

The two hourlong specials, filmed in Austin in 2015 and Los Angeles in 2016, respectively, are part of the comic's three-special deal with Netflix which includes a third, yet-to-be-filmed special for the streamer. Chappelle is currently on the road touring in preparation for the third special, which will film sometime this year.

In addition to the release date, Netflix also on Tuesday unveiled a trailer for the first two specials. In the video, Chappelle covers everything from ISIS to O.J. Simpson.

The specials, titled, Dave Chappelle: Deep in the Heart of Texas and Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin, both hail from the former Comedy Central star's personal collection and were self-financed by Chappelle. The specials, both directed by Stan Lathan, mark his first in 12 years.

Chappelle is just one of an impressive group of A-list comics moving to Netflix, including Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer, whose special was released earlier this month.
