Don't expect Def Comedy Jam
6 October 2017 | by biff-54079See all my reviews

This recording was seemingly put together for all of the legends of Def Comedy Jam to get dressed up and slap each other on the back for times gone by. In terms of pure comedic output, this was poor. If you'd wanted a stand up comedy, go back to the Original DCJ and enjoy. If you want a slightly emotional call back to 80s and 90s black comedy, give it a go. Mind you...nice to Chappelle back on stage in any form.
