An objective review of the new Dave Chapelle comedy special.
7 April 2017 | by CupOfAwesomeSee all my reviews

Because Chappelle is such a legendary, famous, and infamous person, it is very hard to stay purely objective and unbiased while watching anything he is doing. Especially for people who have seen his earlier work. Here is my attempt to cut through the hype, bs and expectations.

Here are my observations:

The first time I saw this, I was in a state of constant anticipation and analyzing every detail; it has been so long... is he going to bomb? Is this good? Was that a good joke or a bad joke? Has he gone crazy or is he normal now? Does the crowd like him? Do they think he is trying too hard? Should I like this or not? Is this politically correct or purposefully inflammatory? Whats gonna happen next?


The SECOND time I watched it however, I had a couple of glasses of wine, felt relaxed, and already knew its gonna be a good show. What I realized then is this: Here is a funny, empathetic, down to earth guy, telling funny stories. Not trying to convert the audience, just trying to explain whats going on in his head, in a very relaxed, funny and entertaining way. Judging by this show alone, the impression I got is that here is a guy that would be awesome just to hang out with. It doesn't really matter what he is saying either. He is just a funny dude.

Try this. Turn off your critical brain for an hour and relax and have a good time.

I will give this an 8, because I liked Chappelle's earlier special more, and I gave it a 9. So basically I too failed to stay objective.

(PS: Show compatible with mind altering substances)
