Somewhere in every episode of the second season, the same man can be seen intensely dancing "The Robot". He is Karl Lake, set dresser for the show. In the first season, he was asked to be in a crowd scene and do something funny. Chappelle liked the dance Lake was doing and made it a fixture of the second season. See more »

This show will go down as the funniest show of the decade
Mark my words....
Some people deem this show as racist/sterotyping/labeling. Well I think thats the point.
Welcome to the new millennium, where a guy takes things we've had in my country (USA) since its founding, like racism and makes it funny (An effort to try to tear down racial barriers? Maybe) and exploits how ridiculous and stupid racism and sterotyping really is.
And at the same time how does Chapelle hit pop culture so well? The vice city sketch, John Mayer in the Harlem barber shop, the player haters ball, the real world with one super white guy, I know black people, and of course the racial draft...
You just got to take all the skits' racism out of context (The way I think Chapelle does), and just laugh at yourself and your entire race for once instead of hyper-defending your race. And if you can do that you'll realize why this is one of the funniest shows of the decade.
