Dave Chappelle: Equanimity & The Bird Revelation is a stand-up comedy special starring Dave Chappelle. It is a Netflix original release that was first aired in December 2017. The show features Chappelle delivering two distinct sets, Equanimity and The Bird Revelation. The show is filmed in a simple setting, without any flashy props or costumes. Chappelle is dressed casually in a hoodie and appears quite relaxed throughout the show. The show is filmed in a small, intimate setting which gives the performance a cozy feel. The lighting in the room is low and there is no audience reaction shots, allowing the audience to focus solely on Chappelle's performance.

In Equanimity, Chappelle tackles a variety of topics, both political and personal. He discusses his previous experiences meeting Donald Trump, the current political landscape, police shootings, and the #MeToo movement. The set is remarkable for Chappelle's ability to make difficult and touchy subjects still quite funny. He talks about the Black Lives Matter movement and other topics that often spark controversy and hot debate.

The Bird Revelation, the second set of the show, is a more philosophical and introspective act. Chappelle talks about his own struggles with fame, fortune, and the various roads he has taken in his life. Chappelle talks about meeting various famous individuals like Kevin Hart, J Cole, and Kanye West, and gives an insight into what goes on in their lives.

The Bird Revelation is a more contemplative and somber set than Equanimity. Chappelle muses about the virtues of public figures during these politically tense times. He discusses politics and life with a fervour for seeking wisdom in day-to-day occurrences. The second set isn't about telling jokes or making the audience laugh, but rather it's a reflective and thought-provoking conversation about the American cultural climate.
