Chappelle's Show is one of those shows you can watch a million times and it never gets old. That's why Comedy Central is doing a New Year's Day marathon of the sketch show's entire run, plus Dave Chappelle's classic 2000 stand-up specialKillin' Them Softly at midnight.

The "It's a Celebration, Bitches!" marathon (a quote from Chappelle's immortal portrayal of Rick James) will start at 9/8c am New Year's Day with the series premiere (which includes the game-changing "Black White Supremacist" sketch) and run chronologically through all 28 episodes of the series, including the controversial "lost episodes" that aired after Chappelle left the show in 2005.

We recommend that you pop in throughout the day and be surprised by whatever sketch happens to be on. You'll either catch a classic or be surprised by a deep cut you haven't thought about in forever, like "Wrap It Up."

Then, at midnight, you can watch Killin' Them Softly, his first hourlong special from 2000, back when he was skinny and his voice hadn't been torched by cigarettes.

Plus, all the episodes and the special will be available on CC.com and on the Comedy Central app, so you can watch them anytime.

And before the marathon, you can catch some new Chappelle when his third stand-up special of 2017, Equanimity, drops Dec. 31 on Netflix.
