Chappelle’s Show

chappelle's show

In all my years I can say I never encountered anything like Chappelle’s Show: a a sketch show that made you nearly piss yourself laughing but somehow changed the way I thought about comedy. Dave Chappelle got his own show, I didn’t think twice as a kid. Suddenly I kept hearing half my 6th grade class greeting each other with “I’m Rick James bitch!”. Sadly I didn’t get into it until after Chappelle’s Show ended but I’ve been in love with the show ever since. Tyrone The crackhead, Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories, and that crazy ass ride with Wayne Brady are classics but certain sketches like the family with the strange last name and the PopCopy skit are a hell of a lot more cleaver than people give them credit for. In fact, I quote the PopCopy sketch at least once a day at my other job. Chappelle found a way to do racial comedy that was outrageous but not mean spirited and as I got older, I appreciated that. When days get bad Chappelle’s Show reruns make me laugh my ass off even though I’ve seen them 100 times by now. If you haven’t seen it, I seriously recommend it. May the gaming gods bring you glory, and I end this review with a quote from Chappelle ” Remember, you graduated from Kindergarten and don’t have to take shit from no one.”
