David Chappelle: Have you ever had something happen to you that was so racist that you didn't even get mad? You were just like "Goddamn, that was racist!" It was so blatent, you were just like "Wow!"

Absolutely brilliant
11 February 2017 | by grantssSee all my reviews

A Dave Chappelle stand-up comedy performance from Washington, DC.

Incredibly clever, subversive and irreverent and delivered with Dave Chappelle's incredible sense of timing and range of voices, this is stand-up comedy at its finest. Might well be the funniest comedy performance I've seen - only Robin Williams comes close.

Three years later Dave Chappelle turned his clever, racially-focused wit into a series, with Chappelle's Show. There he had even more room to demonstrate his talents, as he mixed stand up with set-orientated skits. Chappelle's Show turned out to be one of the funniest TV series of all time.
