"Equanimity" will now be joined by "Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation, " filmed November 20 at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Comedy Central is also giving viewers Chappelle for New Year's.

The last part of the trilogy has Chapelle talking about topics that are timelier, more urgent. In the clip, which runs just short of two minutes, Chappelle talks about poor white people and President Donald Trump.

And I stood with them in line, like all of us Americans are required to do in a democracy - nobody skips the line to vote - and I listened to them.

"I've never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorites", he said. "I listened to them say naïve poor white people things: 'My man Donald Trump is going to go to Washington and he's gonna fight for us.' I'm standing there thinking, 'you dumb motherf***er.' You are poor. Poor. He's fighting for me.'" The audience roars into laughter.

The first two marked Chappelle's first released specials in over a decade. Since then, the comedian has developed a much harsher view of Trump and his actions, and he even apologized for suggesting that Trump should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Netflix surprised audiences today by announcing a second Dave Chappelle stand-up special that will launch on New Year's Eve.

As you may know, Chappelle is now one of the highest paid comedians in the world, with a net worth of around $40 million.

Dave Chappelle's: Equanimity debuts Sunday (Dec. 31) on Netflix.

In the routine, the comedian explained that he spoke with several Trump supporters in that demographic while in line to vote previous year, who told him that they were voting for the now president because he was going to fight for them. What do you think about his change of opinion regarding Trump?
