“I’ve been gone for a very long time,” Dave Chappelle says to open the trailer for his upcoming Netflix special. “Surprise—it’s me.”

Netflix is gearing up for the legendary stand-up comic’s first concert special in over a decade. Dave Chapelle: Two Cities, One Event features back-to-back sets in Austin, Texas, and Los Angeles, filmed over the last few years. They appear to be showcasing a rousing return to form. The new trailer for the special teases Chappelle’s command of the stage and the crowd, aptly soundtracked to A Tribe Called Quest’s terrific political anthem “We the People.”

As for topics covered, this snippet doesn’t give away too much (aside from a few bits, including an unsurprisingly great O.J. joke). We’ll have to wait until March 21, when Two Cities, One Event launches on Netflix, to see what subjects the ever-shrewd Chappelle tackles.
