Funny as hell and Chappelle is a great comedian
24 June 2005 | by OriginalMovieBuff21See all my reviews

I just started watching "Chappelle's Show" about two months ago after hearing how hilarious the show was. Early on I really never got into the show and I just didn't look forward to it so after everyone was saying how funny it was, I borrowed both seasons from a friend. "Chappelle's Show" is hilarious! Mostly all of the sketches are drop down funny. My favorite sketch is Prince but other hilarious ones are racial draft, rick james, wayne brady, the pee song, gay people like ku klux klan, boxer, lawnmower, etc. Other ones like when keeping it real goes wrong, "We F*cked up", and lots of other ones. I will buy both seasons of "Chappelle's Show" and I will hope there will be another season coming out because Dave Chappelle is an amazing comedian.

Hedeen's Outlook: 10/10 **** A+
