Dave Chappelle Got Morgan Freeman to Narrate the Trailer for His New Netflix Stand-Up

But why is his shirt so long?

Keisha Hatchett

The official trailer for Dave Chappelle's forthcoming Netflix stand-up special Sticks & Stones is prime content. Morgan Freeman serves as the narrator while Chappelle casually strolls through a desert in gold-rimmed Aviators and an inexplicably long smedium-sized tunic. Don't ask questions, just go with it.

Per the official description, the special will feature Chapelle offering up his "provocative perspective on the tidal wave of celebrity scandals, the opioid crisis, and more -- in trademarked Chappelle fashion." So if you ever wanted to know how the comedian feels about celebs resorting to alleged bribery to get their kids admitted into the nation's top universities, this might be your chance.

Sticks & Stones marks Chapelle's fifth comedy special for Netflix following his rumored $60 million deal with the streamer, which produced the specials Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits, The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium, Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, and Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation in 2017.

Chapelle's upcoming comedy special Sticks & Stones premieres Monday, Aug. 26 on Netflix.
