Netflix will debut a new comedy special featuring Chris Rock just in time for the Valentine’s Day couples who decide to ditch their reservations for a night of Netflix & Chill.

The show, dubbed Chris Rock: Tamborine, will be added to the streaming service on Feb. 14th, and will be Rock’s first stand-up special in a decade. It was filmed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and directed by Bo Burnham; and is part one in a three-series installment with Netflix.

Rock’s Valentine’s Day special was crafted from his Total Blackout Tour, which took place last year at venues all across the world. Rock said that he planned to record the special in front of a “predominantly black crowd,” saying “You do cutting-edge humor about race and you cut to white people — it does not have the same effect,” he said, according to Rolling Stone.

Chris Rock: Tambourine is available on Netflix now!
