Dave Chappelle Wins Best Comedy Album | 2018 GRAMMYs
A double-album comprising the legendary comedian, writer, and actor's first full-length comedy specials released in over 12 years, Chappelle's The Age Of Spin & Deep In The Heart Of Texas, respectively, document the performer's views on "Making A Murder," a potential script idea for a Texan superhero, and the four times he met O.J. Simpson. In the month following the specials' dual release, Netflix revealed they were already the most-viewed standup performances ever hosted by the streaming video network.
