BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Three new Dave Chappelle stand-up specials are to premiere on Netflix simultaneously in 2017.

"Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy -- searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential," Lisa Nishimura, vice president of original documentary and comedy, said in a statement Monday. "Dave's three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy, and we are honored he will mark his global return on Netflix."

Chappelle -- former star of The Chappelle Show sketch-comedy series -- recently earned raves for his guest-hosting stint on Saturday Night Live.
