    The thing is nobody has HAS to talk about him. A true comedian would make jokes so the audience can escape from hearing about the thing that's on everyone's mind. It's bad for comedy because a lot of new comedians are lazy hacks that go for the cheap jokes that they know people will mindlessly clap to due to the subject matter alone.

    Glad to see Dave Chappelle back in comedy. My lifetime comedy timeline Starts with Richard Pryor and George Carlin, to Eddie Murphy, to Martin Lawrence, to Dave and I like his body of work better than all. Martin had TV and movies to back up his stand up, Eddies' early work in movies, with Life being one of my favorite comedies, was spectacular, . With a few exceptions, Pryor and Carlins' movie careers weren't great. I would have to say that I love ALL of Daves work, I have yet to be disappointed in any of his roles, programs, or routines. Keep ya head up Dave, you have millions of people at your side.

    lol "Tough times like this" We're so oppressed under Trump. lol. You got Brits getting blown up every other weekend at concerts, bars, etc. Even their own parliament. Trump has been in office 6 months. Are there concentration camps? People being rounded up on the street? Democrats truly are mentally ill.

    I Love Dave Chappelle, Morgan Freeman and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. They all have very civilized opinions on society without spewing anything about racism in an illogical manor. Only when it's necessary. These are the current prominent figures in black culture, and they should be looked up to more instead of many of these false idols. Lemme know if I excluded any.

    It is interesting that Canadians love comedy so much that they've created an industry out of it. I think it has a lot to do with the French population who love humor. Unfortunately, the culinary gene from the French didn't make it across the Atlantic.

    For all you morons that don't get it, he's saying Trump isn't that bad. His words mean far more than just "everyone is making the same joke". True, he may not like the man as a person, however I do NOT believe for a second he doesn't agree with his politics.

    Apparently, he came to a distinct conclusion, because he apologized for his SNL monologue and its tone-deafness only a few weeks later.

    There's some indefinable characteristic about Dave that makes him special. OK, he says that for him, nothing is bigger than comedy. But Chappelle himself has the opportunity to be bigger than comedy. He has a universal appeal that has the potential to bring people together, which is certainly what the world needs now.

    The main problem with Trump is that he's polarized people into two fields: One group, the largest, sees his antics and is reminded of cartoon villains. The other group, his few followers, simply deny everything bad he's ever done or has announced for the future has actually been bad. So you got two viewpoints, one of a misunderstood saint, and one of a dastardly bad guy. You can't really do much with these two images.

  • James Hill

    I like this guy doing the interview. It seems like he's actually paying attention to what Dave is talking about and asking questions that relate to what he's saying and keep the conversation going rather than just reading off the notes on his card saying "bring this hot topic up and ask about this thing that Dave did."

    Just going to bounce my tight five on Donald Trump off all of you.
    His hair, wow his hair looks a bit silly. He's presumably balding, and uses silly hair to conceal that! Look at his skin, too, that's a bit of a strange skin tone! He's pretty dumb, man oh man, he's not an intelligent person. Russia.

    "it will be nice when we don't have to talk about him (Trump) as much".

    Well, who says you have to talk about him? It's not because you have to talk about him it's because most comics, not Chappelle because he actually has talent, aren't funny so they resort to the flavor of the day every day. Growing up I don't really ever remember Carson or even Letterman talking about politics at all. Conan doesn't much either. It's the hacks like Colbert, Trevor Noah, Samantha Bee and the SNL cast who can't hold their own without the Trump crutch. Colbert should thank Trump every day for momentarily saving his career. Personally I don't care if they bag on Trump, he put himself in the spotlight and it comes with the territory, but if they plan on making a career out of it they are in for a short career.

    I really respect Dave, even more after this. He didn't try and say anything about Trump or his policies. He kept his peace with it, and stayed out of it. It's like that skit he did, when he talked about celebrities always speaking out when they had nothing of value to say. He stopped the interviewer from turning it into a political debate when politics had nothing to do with what they should have been discussing. And he did it so well. He even turned it around so that you saw it from the perspective of a comedian on Trump, rather than a sweeping overgeneralisation that people seem to be so fond of. Respect.
