    More than ten years after going off the air, Chappelle's Show is still eminently watchable, quotable, and hilarious. But why did Dave Chappelle resonate in the first place? And why, after all these years, do we still need him more than ever?

    Thumbs up on Dave Chappelle, thumbs down on this video... how did this video tell me that Dave Chappelle is more Important than I think'??? It just recapped things about his career I already knew with nothing original whatsoever.

    Ya I never thought about it until he said it that he had to watch the show he created through key & peele. Man is a legend up there with the greats. Oh and the netflix special was dope.

    He knew when to get off that train. where as he was funny insightful there were also negative influences that wanted him to reinforce some truly stereotypical attitudes. he understood this and didn't drink the koolaide, so to speak.
    Bravo and bless him.

    I think maybe the reason Chappelle hasn't done much since "Chappelle's Show" is that it's such a tough act to follow. This reminds me of how long it took Quentin Tarantino to make another movie after PULP FICTION (1994).

    Dave chapelle left the Hollywood scene because he didn't want to sell his soul for 10mill. his family and name is more important to him. just like how SNL tried to get him to talk shit about trump, he instead talked about how we needed to come together and SNL cast were rolling their eyes the whole time. pathetic Hollywood attempt to smear trump like they always do since SNL isnt funny nor creative anymore.

    What an interesting video. The PC culture that would never tolerate his humor today based on their agendas wish that he would come back? Liberals ruined any sort of casual fun blending of ethnicities and decided to focus on our differences.....because equality right? Things like this were the perfect medium to bring people together. Humor that crossed all races and situations. He left the show for his own reasons and probably would of come back if not for this ridiculous b.s. about races...he left because he was worried he was reinforcing stereotypes rather than poking fun at them. He was too ahead of his time and now thanks to this snowflake madness you better believe the genius, fun, and influence of people like Dave Chappelle are long gone. It is a sad state our world is in now...this is why we cannot have nice things....

    This new dude they call Dave Chappelle aint got it. He aint got the look, the voice, the charisma or the talent from what I've seen so far. He's nothing like authentic Dave who not only cracked jokes but used his time on stage as teachable moments. This new dude just wants to be on and in. Yall heard what he said about Flint Michigan. That shit wasn't funny and that wasn't the Dave Chappelle I remember. ijs

  • That Mothafuckin Dude

    It's just weird how he never agreed doing what the execs told him then goes away for a long time then comes back looking completly different and finally agrees to the execs? Weird

    Anyone that grew up in an integrated neighborhood, knows a David Chappelle, funny as hell, but as scared of gun toting dudes as Whites. That's why, like "Prince" he lives in an all White neighborhood. Also completely self centered. But all super stars are.

    So is Dave Chappelle our modern day Richard Pryor or something? Or is he just up in that League? To me personally I think there's is a little bit of something in between... ? And then he goes into his own category..Note this motherfuckers is just that damn funny hahaha!!!!!!!!!! I'm just glad he's back it's that proverbial comedic void filled finally!!! also now that he's back that means he brings creative genius competition and will bring out the dwindling fire in these other comedians that's been lying dormant for a couple of years?🤔 Now if we just can do the same for the infiltrated demonic type dying Hip Hop Oh Happy Day😊

    I love Chappelle because he says it like it is. Like Bill Hicks and George Carlin. But, is it just me....or did Dave Chappelle conveniently take a sabbatical from the main stream media while Obama was president for 8 years??? We're was Dave calling out the absurdity of Obama getting a Nobel Peace Prize as POTUS...yet then getting America in war in a few more Arab nations? But alas, Obama is gone....aaannnddd Dave Chappelle is back? WTF?
