It’s a charged metaphor to use at the moment, but some standup comics function as border patrol agents. They may not stand in airports checking the papers of arriving travelers, but many of the best ones — and Dave Chappelle undoubtedly belongs in that elite group — are obsessed with moral positions and cultural territories, who gets to occupy them, and why. 

Many of the most thoughtful and incendiary comics explore the ways in which power dynamics worked in the past, as well as the kinds of words, actions and attitudes are acceptable in the present. How are flawed human beings, all of whom carry their own personal baggage along with the ingrained attitudes of the cultures they were raised in, supposed to negotiate evolving attitudes and new social protocols while holding on to their identities and at least part of their dignity? In two new standup specials that arrive Tuesday on Netflix, Chappelle »

Yes, Alex Trebek Rapping Kanye and Drake Lyrics Is Just as Glorious as It Sounds

How about Alex Trebek rapping on Jeopardy! tonight pic.twitter.com/MNy9CEkf1p - Kenny Ducey (@KennyDucey) February 21, 2017 Alex Trebek might be 76 years old, but that doesn't mean he's not hip. In addition to dealing out some serious burns to Jeopardy! contestants, the veteran host also might be a closet hip-hop fan. During Monday night's episode of the game show, he no doubt inspired a new Saturday Night Live skit while rapping (Ok, rap-reading) lyrics to songs by Kanye West, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and Desiigner for a category titled, "Let's Rap, Kids!" Trebek, who's hosted the show since 1984, was apparently just as amused saying the lyrics as we were hearing them. "I was just getting into this rap thing," he joked after finishing off the category. "I'm not too good at it but I was getting into it." Looks like that time he rapped The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air »
