In Tamborine, which was released early Wednesday morning on Netflix, the comedian takes on many hot-button issues, while also delving into his own personal life and mistakes, including cheating on his ex-wife and his self-described porn addiction. Rock doesn’t waste any time jumping into the deep end, opening the 64-minute special by wondering why cops don’t shoot a white kid every now and then “just to make it look good.” He proceeds to weigh in on everything from gun control to Donald Trump to religion.

Chris Rock's Netflix stand-up special is almost here.

The comedian's first televised stand-up gig in 10 years, Chris Rock: Tamborine, will debut on the streaming platform this Valentine's Day. Directed by fellow comedian Bo Burnham and filmed at New York's Brooklyn Academy of Music, the comedy special has turned out to be the reveal behind Netflix's mysterious tamborine-themed advertising campaign, which included a teaser video and billboards in Los Angeles and New York.

Tamborine is the first of two Netflix stand-up specials to come from Rock, who will attempt to use his incisive commentary on relationships, race and society on life in 2018. The specials also mark a rare return to the stage for Rock, as his last stand-up program was HBO's Kill the Mesenger in 2008. In other recent appearances, he hosted the Academy Awards in 2016 to solid reviews, directed Amy Schumer's Netflix special and guest-starred on Fox's hip-hop drama Empire.

'Lost in Space' Reboot: Netflix Sets Premiere Date, Unveils First Teaser

  'Lost in Space' Reboot: Netflix Sets Premiere Date, Unveils First Teaser Lost in Space finally has a launch date. Netflix has announced that its reboot will lift off on Friday, April 13 — a decidedly unlucky day for the Robinson family. The drama, which was ordered to series last June, will take its cues from the original ’60s series. Set 30 years in the future, the Robinson clan finds itself among those first selected to colonize space. They are forced to come together and forge new alliances after crash-landing on a lost planet, which is light years from their intended destination.

Watch Rock ’s teaser for the special below. “ Chris Rock : Tamborine” will drop on Netflix on Wednesday. Valentine ' s Day is the one holiday we all love to hate. If you're single, it's just a day to remind you that you're single, and if you're in a relationship, it's a Pepto Bismol-colored

From Amy Schumer to Chris Rock : A Guide to Netflix ' s Upcoming Stand-up Specials . Amy Schumer is just one of several comedians set to debut a stand-up special on Netflix , with her special dropping Tuesday on the streaming service.

In 2016, the Emmy and Grammy winner signed a massive $40 million deal with the streaming giant for two stand-up specials. The $20 million per special was believed to be more than other A-list comedians (Jerry Seinfeld, Schumer) have commanded during the platform's stand-up boom. Specials are still forthcoming on the steamer from Kevin James and Ellen DeGeneres.

Lemony Snicket fans beware: according to “A Series of Unfortunate Events'” season 2 trailer, things will get much worse in the Netflix adaptation’s sophomore season. Beginning with a narration from Patrick Warburton’s Lemony Snicket, the trailer is soon interrupted by Neil Patrick Harris’ Count Olaf, who characteristically breaks the fourth wall by expressing his frustration with Netflix’s marketing technique, and goes on to promise “more villainous treachery, more treacherous villains, angry villagers, unwanted elective surgeries, man-eating lions” and “more violence, fire, and despair.
