Now, the tribute is available to watch on Netflix.

The almost hour-and-a-half special finds comedians like Aziz Ansari, Tiffany Haddish, Neal Brennan, Jon Stewart, and Sarah Silverman (as well as entertainers like John Legend) paying tribute to Chappelle and sharing their own anecdotes about the comedian. From Ansari recounting the night Chappelle guilted him into taking mushrooms upon learning he’d been selected for the prestigious award to Tiffany Haddish recounting the time he took her and a group of people to Eddie Murphy’s house to bowl, the tribute highlights not only Chappelle’s impact but his support of other commedians.

Brennan shared that the tribute was available to stream on Netflix Tuesday (March 31).

In related news, Chappelle recently offered his thoughts on COVID-19 (2019 coronavirus)  and how it’s affecting Yellow Springs, Ohio, where he lives.

While speaking with his friend and photographer Mathieu Bitton from his home, Chappelle said that the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in everything being closed in Yellow Springs except for grocery stores. He then jokingly compared it to The Walking Dead before jokinng further, “Anyone you see out is trying to take a walk or buy heroin.”

Elsewhere during the conversation, Chappelle is asked by Bitton if he knows of anyone in Yellow Springs that has contracted the virus.

“Man, not a sniffle out here, bro” Chappelle responded. “It’s kind of the weird thing about it — I’m ducking something that I — I don’t even know if this shit exists. I’m just doing it because what else am I gonna do?”
