Did You Know?

Quotes:
David Chappelle:Then they had the nerve to put a pimp on there. Now, they didn't go out and say he was a pimp. I know a pimp when I see one. They called him, "The Count". He had a cape on and everything. On the show you see him pimping. "Bitch, where is my money. You've been late 4 times, I've been counting. How many times must I smack you before you act right. "*Smack*One, *Smack*Two, Two smacks, ha,ha,ha,ha,ha."See more »

Chappelle's Homecoming, 21 March 2014
Author: MassDistraction from Canada

After multiple appearances with Comic Relief and a half hour special on HBO, Dave Chappelle returns to his hometown of Washington, D.C., to tape his first hour-long special. He spends the bulk of the time exploring racial differences and making cultural observations, with a smattering of political humour. Chappelle manages to navigate some sensitive material with a disarming charisma. He's not breaking any new ground for black comedians here, but he manages to make it seem fresh with his effortless charm. Some jokes (like the ones featuring the out-of-place baby) illustrate Chappelle's ability to paint a picture with words and gives a few clues into what it was that made his show so popular. The political bits and the casual sexism will make this feel a little dated, but there is enough here to appeal to a newer audience.
