In the treasured pantheon of black comedians, Dave Chappelle holds a special place in my heart.
I used to watch Chappelle Show clips on YouTube when I was younger and I definitely remember watching Killing Them Softly on Comedy Central way waaaay past my bedtime. It’s still one of the funniest specials I’ve ever seen. (Hint: It’s on YouTube, if you haven’t seen it.)
His jokes were smart, relevant, and most importantly, funny. The man is a legend with a brand of comedy all his own and he’s back and in my opinion better than ever.
He always manages to take a joke right to the edge without completely falling to his death. We all know how hard it is to make a tasteful Bill Cosby joke.
And he hasn’t been completely removed in has absence, either. Dave’s been staying woke with the rest of us and had a few things to say about the state of things, as well.
I’ll refrain from spoiling any further but just know Dave Chappelle was and still is that nigga. Kids today will never know.
It’s two thumbs up for me.
