No. He doesn’t have to catch up
Aug 15th 2019
10
yeah the Dave needs to catch up takes are weird
Aug 15th 2019
13
It's not pushing boundaries to recycle the same tropes for generations
Aug 15th 2019
15
      The only obligation a comedian has to anyone is be funny.
Aug 16th 2019
40
           Ok.
Aug 26th 2019
55
                Wasn’t funny to you
Aug 26th 2019
58
                Uh. Okay.
Aug 26th 2019
59
                     I bet some homosexuals and trans laughed at it too
Aug 26th 2019
61
                          Um. Okay.
Aug 26th 2019
63
                               I watched all of his specials and agree with you on this completely..
Aug 27th 2019
73
                I don’t think those things are funny, but Dave’s jokes were...
Aug 27th 2019
109
I disagree. I didn't like the pimp shit but I do appreciate a comedian.
Aug 15th 2019
17
i don't even think he's consciously pushing back on anything
Aug 15th 2019
18
      That may be true but I also understand why it's tough for some ...
Aug 15th 2019
21
           there's nothing lazy at all about what he's doing
Aug 16th 2019
23
           Uhm what ? Who said he owes me anything ?
Aug 16th 2019
29
                i don't think that was directed at you personally
Aug 16th 2019
38
                Either way it was strange to respond to me but ignore ...
Aug 16th 2019
39
                only thing strange is your reaction lol
Aug 16th 2019
41
                     LOL fair points.
Aug 16th 2019
42

308
                                    And now your homophobia makes total sense.
Sep 03rd 2019

                                         Phobia means fear, ...who fears a homosexual?
Sep 04th 2019

Aug 15th 2019
19
Lmao. He wasn’t Chris Rock levels huh
Aug 16th 2019

Aug 16th 2019

Aug 16th 2019
45
           The Sesame Street bit is classic
Aug 16th 2019

           I'm glad you found them so funny that you'd say I'm trippin
Aug 30th 2019
240
                he cant imagine a world where opinions differ from his own
Aug 31st 2019

Aug 26th 2019
49
Just finished it and I'm here with it
Aug 26th 2019
66
I'm surprised he didn't catch more heat when he taped this
Aug 26th 2019

Oh the think pieces are coming

65
yeah im here for these as long as Netflix/Dave are
Aug 26th 2019
67
Classic Dave...
Aug 26th 2019
68
It was funny but he definitely crossed some lines
Aug 26th 2019
69
I think that was very much his point
Aug 28th 2019
171
That’s the summary of his career from Chappelle Show forward
Sep 01st 2019
274
staying in the grey
Aug 26th 2019
70
not for the easily offended
Aug 26th 2019
71
Felt a bit trite, but its aight
Aug 27th 2019
72
I kinda felt like this too...
Aug 27th 2019
80
Sounds like Dave Chappelle to me
Aug 27th 2019
85
.
Aug 27th 2019
84
so typical dave.
Aug 27th 2019
86
      I havent seen all of his stand ups
Aug 27th 2019
94
Damn...I didn’t think this was funny at all really
Aug 27th 2019
74
lol
Aug 27th 2019
78
      Yes but it didn’t seem fresh to me
Aug 27th 2019
88
           Not the bad guy, a different opinion
Aug 27th 2019
92
You clicked on my face!!!
Aug 27th 2019
75
my wife is a huge Bourdain fan...she almost turned it off
Aug 27th 2019
76
Did that setup ever come to a punchline / conclusion?
Aug 27th 2019
77
the punchline was him suggesting to his buddy from hs
Aug 27th 2019
89
*sigh*
Aug 27th 2019
90
      ?
Aug 27th 2019
91
RE: Did that setup ever come to a punchline / conclusion?
Aug 28th 2019
172
there was nothing to work through, the joke was "let's shame suicide"
Aug 27th 2019
79
Right. that joke was about shaming suicide. SMH.
Aug 27th 2019
81
I don't have it memorized verbatim
Aug 27th 2019
95
      I think part of the implication is YT privilege
Aug 27th 2019
111
           Definitely pointing out the racial angle when it comes to hardship
Aug 27th 2019
122
           it also alludes to Dave's longstanding critique of how brutal
Aug 28th 2019
131
                Great point
Aug 28th 2019
137
                     Agreed, that's probably part of it too...also, comedians find humor in e...
Aug 28th 2019
145
I think the point was you never know what someone is going through
Aug 27th 2019
83
this is what me and my wife both got out the bit
Aug 27th 2019
105
Yeah... lol... that was pretty obvious. And he said that exactly.
Aug 27th 2019
110
      He even said “ my point is”
Aug 27th 2019
112
      Right. Lol... Rap Genius should start doing comedy specials.
Aug 27th 2019
127
      so explain the funny part to me
Aug 27th 2019
117
           irony of Bourdain killing himself vs his childhood friend
Aug 27th 2019
118
           hilarious and bold, bro
Aug 27th 2019
119
                It was funny to me. And I laughed. I also miss Bourdain.
Aug 27th 2019
126
                     That’s impossible
Aug 28th 2019
133
           The funny part --->>>> *crowd laughs* <<<<---
Aug 29th 2019
189
wow
Aug 27th 2019
87
Yeah. I think it’s a reach
Aug 27th 2019
96
      Can you provide examples from his earlier work ?
Aug 27th 2019
99
      I know this question is for Legs but here is an example
Aug 27th 2019
103
      Brilliant
Aug 27th 2019
108
      LOL good one.
Aug 27th 2019
115
      Mostly the show
Aug 27th 2019
107
           Word yea I think the race angle plays a factor.
Aug 27th 2019
116
                and this is exactly the point everyone is missing in this post.
Aug 29th 2019
219
                     Nah all of that is wrong
Aug 29th 2019
223
                          it's not "wrong" or "right". It's my analysis.
Aug 29th 2019
224
                               In that case I disagree with your analysis.
Aug 29th 2019
228
                                    much better.
Aug 30th 2019

Only complaint was the LGBT setup...never had a punchline

97
He’s so good at executing
Aug 27th 2019
98
I more or less agree with this
Aug 27th 2019
120
yeah the car analogy was pretty unnecessary/aimless.
Aug 27th 2019
129
      actually it was spot on if you listen to it when he got to the T part...
Aug 28th 2019
135
           Yeah that G & L hate T because they're making the trip take forever

Aug 27th 2019
125
Never mind I see it
Aug 27th 2019
128
the stuff meant to offend was pretty good.
Aug 27th 2019
130
The majority of the audience are huge Dave fans
Aug 28th 2019
132
Funny is funny, this was decent
Aug 28th 2019

i didn't find this hilarous. it was chuckle inducing.

Aug 28th 2019

You don't see hypocrisy in the cancel culture coming for Kevin Hart
Aug 28th 2019
151
I think it was less about "cancelling" Kevin Hart.
Aug 28th 2019

I think it was more about...the group you are offending

Aziza works very hard to appease his audiences. Dave seems to have zero ...
Aug 28th 2019
170
Yeah, opening up with 1999 was the tell tale sign
Aug 29th 2019
205
The diff for me is Aziz is phony & Dave is incapable of being phony
Aug 29th 2019
175
      Aw I don't find Aziz phony at all.

Aug 29th 2019

Aug 29th 2019

      Well I’m applauding him
Aug 29th 2019

Dave still hasn't/hadn't caught up to where we're at as a society. His comedy used to be progressive and while he was trying to catch up in his last two specials, he was still somewhat caught in the past in his views...

"You can't beat white people. You can only knock them out."

"There is only one god and his name is death. And there is only one thing we say to death: not today."

In response to Reply # 1


          

His comedy and his views are what make him special

We need to stop trying to force comedians to “get with the times”

Especially comedians with loyal fans. Stop trying to make Dave into a 20 something year old vegan. He’s hot wings and cigarette smoke.

IMO it’s the viewers who have to check themselves. Comedy should always push boundaries regardless if we like it or not.

and I say that as someone who doesn’t like some of these off brand new comedians who I find terrible. It’s not for me and it’s cool.

let some of these thinkpieces tell it, Dave is a relic who should take notes from Hanna Gadsby on where comedy in 2019 is supposed to be

And comedians do need to get with the times, like everyone else. Entertainers, politicians, whoever.
They (comedians) love to complain about "pc culture" or "outrage culture" or whatever the fuck, which is just a stylized way of saying "I want to be able to say whatever the fuck I want about the groups of people who have been historically oppressed and have that be okay."
And his comedy is much bigger than jokes about gay and trans people. I'd hope you see that.
Dave's still vocally homophobic (as we saw in the Daniel Caesar debacle). "He looks so gay" That shit is lame as fuck.
Punching down is pushing no boundaries at all. Its pulling the boundaries tighter.

Some black men allow their white girlfriends say "nigga."
And some people think cucumbers taste better pickled.
But that's essentially your post. And just a "hunch" that you have.

But, most things can be made fun of if done from angles that aren't demeaning, that aren't trying to make the unnacceptable accepted, that aren't contributing to the oppression of marginalized folks, that aren't punching down.
Dave was punching down.
And no one said they were "protected"
What was said is that Dave makes homophobic and transphobic jokes/statements.
That's not even remotely the same as saying "homosexuals and transpeople are off limits as subject matter"

I think he's always psuedo-masked his homophobia on stage and it's apparent but folks just lap it up simply because it's Chappelle.

thoughtfully pushing back on PC Culture when few progressive types have the balls to do it.

Being a truth teller and PC has to conflict at times.

one side is acting like he's taking a stand and the other is acting like he's stuck in the past but don't feel like he even has much interest in the whole "pc culture" debate

Dave's just gonna say what he feels. As he should. People are free to have and express their problems with it, but I hate the idea that his views *need* to fit within a certain box.

... to reconcile someone who in his prime was seen as part of that larger black progressive movement, being so ... I dunno, lazy ? laissez faire ? about the issues that are at the forefront of progressive discussion in the modern day. Like I get he's just trying to make people laugh, and I'm not personally offended. But I can understand why folks would be.

people seem to act like Dave owes them something, or has some sort of obligation to be a certain way. if there's anything consistent about Chappelle, it's not bending to people's expectations, and being true to his own shit

The way Dave thinks isn't too far fetched. Im 44. I have seen a lot of stuff change and stay the same. Honestly, idgaf about most of the whiney shit going on today. If it doesn't affect me, do you. I see all the agendas out here, but I got other stuff to do.

I'm a lurker. What you have just posted must have been that awesome!

Your position on this is pretty much the polar opposite of everybody, I think. Haha.

I'm not trying to be snarky either. I've just literally never known anyone who felt this way about Old Dave vs. New Dave.

Was no where near a Chris Rock level at the time.

Folks like it wasn't the Show that catapulted dude to Upper Echelon of black comedy.

His standup reached the next level post the show.

IMO he did a pretty good job of responding to the anger over his trans jokes from the last go around, as well as dancing around the issue of #MeToo in a pretty clever and stand-up lifer kind of way. Him wearing the construction jumpsuit definitely doesn't distract from the "get off my lawn" vibe of some of it, but I was hysterical at some of these jokes in a way I don't recall for his first two specials.


Maybe part of it was having no idea this was coming out when it was and just pressing play when I saw it in my queue at 1AM so I had much lower/no expectations, but I really liked this special.

But, as his standup over the last few years has implicitly/explicitly implied, that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it as a whole and give credit to what I *do* like about it.

I definitely laughed out loud a lot here, and he's still one of the most thought-provoking comedians of our time.

I think the outrage against "the outrage" (cancel culture) is often a strawman, his one bit where he points his finger at the audience was the funniest shit in the show to me.

just the way it was delivered and set up... perfect comedy

I loved it again. Asking questions. Commenting. Not holding back for fear of backlash. I love that he seems to be trolling the idea that saying something that folks don't agree with should be outlawed in a country where you can forreal say 'nigga' all over the place and Donald Trump forreal had about half of the country vote for him to be forreal president. Recently. And he's still prez. And he might win again. And I'm supposed to broken up about some shit that Dave says if/when I don't agree with him? Shiiiiiiiid. Are we that accustomed to tailoring our content to echo chambers now?

And yeah, he's doing his version of 'tackling' heavy topics from his angle. And he seems sincere enough which is wildly risky now cuz we live in a cloak and dagger universe now. Folks will say harsh shit ABOUT you when you're not around but won't sack up and say anything of that sort directly to you. Well wait...unless it's online...then, errbody's gangstafiiiiiiiiiiiiied!.

The best thing is that he seems to understand that he might be wrong about some pieces of what he's saying. That too is a wild stance to walk around with now. I swear I'm surrounded by folks who are finished products and geniuses if you listen to them talk about themselves. And of course, almost everyone around them is an idiot per them.

I wasn't offended but I didn't quite laugh a lot either

he kept stepping over the line of good taste just to shock and awe people, but the crowd loved it

I’ll give it another try because I was tired but I honestly didn’t laugh much.

It seemed to be missing something for me.

He was covering a lot of the same shit as the last two specials and it came off kind of like a rapper with nothing else to talk about.

Nothing too original and seemed a bit predictable.

Kind of sad I feel that way because I love Dave and was looking forward to it.

I didn’t even feel like he crossed the line that much... just kind of *shrugs*

Anthony Bourdain had an amazing job and took his own life, the failed law student dude works at Foot Locker at 45 and hasn't considered suicide? That was it?

I thought the ultimate conclusion was 'you don't know what folks are going through forreal even if you know a zoomed out version of their situation. One guy seemed to have a great life. The other didn't. BUT WE DON'T REALLY KNOW! WE LOVE TO THINK WE DO BUT WE DON'T'.

In response to Reply # 79


  

          

So many of the takes like this I see on twitter have me convinced that Dave is doing the most important, revelatory work in comedy right now.

That was not a joke at Anthony Bourdain's expense. It also misses the whole set up with the 1999 lyrics.

In response to Reply # 95


  

          

i.e. why is this happening to me

That was also part of the bit about being poor and being broke

That's the joke

A black man, that had everything and lost it...never even thought about suicide

A YT man, who seemingly had everything...killed himself...because...?

That's the joke.

I saw Dave live right after he got back from Africa and he was pissed. Hilarious, but pissed off. Joked about how his wife called him and asked him how long he had been smoking crack because she read it in Time magazine.

In response to Reply # 137


  

          

comedians find humor in everything

A friend suggested the comedians in cars w/Eddie Murphy

I've never watched that series

but one point that stood out, in relation to this subject/joke

I think Seinfeld brought up finding humor in death, and making jokes about funerals

"That was enough of him anyway"

to the point of the subject/joke being in bad taste

that's comedy.

Just seems like some folks aren’t getting what Dave is doing which isn’t new.. he’s always been above and beyond as a comedian.

If you want to find controversy it’s real easy when watching Dave because he’s always finding ways of spinning serious topics into jokes

Honest question cause I'm trying to think back and I can't really come up with anything that anyone would really consider "offensive" or harmful to a select group of people. Like the most egregious material I can come up with is like the baby selling crack bit from "Killin' 'Em Softly," or Wayne Brady choking a bitch lol and it's like ... I dunno, that's not really comparable to suicide jokes and gay jokes.

But I could certainly be forgetting a bunch of material from the show or his early standup so that's why I'm asking. Cause in my mind Dave's never been the type of comedian who had to resort to shock value or cheap gimmickry to get laughs.

Dude was always line stepping but I think since a lot of it was racial it was okay.

Cause obviously he's black so he's got some license to take that issue head on. And also he's on the progressive side of that issue. So while he's technically "pushing the envelope" it's not quite apples to apples with "punching down" on trans folks etc.

an individual being personally offended is not the problem. folks are going to be offended by all sorts of things...it is what it is.

Dave is also straight...which give him zero license to punch down at people that are not. Like zero.

That shit isn't offensive to me..its highly disappointing and juvenile. it's also hypocritical because he understood, during his Chappelle's Show, era that no artists work exists in a vacuum...that you bear at least some responsibility for the effect it has on the populace

and he was smart enough to pick up that all his sketches about Niggas let white people laugh just a bit too hard for his comfort...he understood the inherent danger in that.

so for him to ignore that now...at a time when his power and privilege are at the greatest point its ever been..at a time when those in power are sonning the powerless in ways we haven't seen...when trans folk are being murdered...for him, and all of you, to play the "its just jokes" card is naive and dangerous.

These jokes...so widely a part of pop culture, add to the danger folks face every day. That's far more important to me than a comedian feeling "safe to say whatever he likes".

your individual freedom should not cost others their lives.

In response to Reply # 219


  

          

If Dave singled out Trans and only made jokes about them you could say he was punching down but he's going in on everybody.

The same with his show, if the white people laughed at every sketch as hard as they did at the ones that made Dave uncomfortable, then you could say Dave was wrong and he is hypocritical, but since that probably didn't happen.

Then you don't understand what punching down means. He punched up at white people and other power structures AND down at Queer folk etc in that special. It does not make the punching down ok. Not even close.

Some Queer folk are part of the power structure and some are white so it's not really punching down.

Ok you said

"he was smart enough to pick up that all his sketches about Niggas let white people laugh just a bit too hard for his comfort...he understood the inherent danger in that. so for him to ignore that now."

I'm saying I don't believe Dave walking away from his show because whites laughed too hard at those sketches, is the same as Dave making jokes about Trans.

I believe that's why comedians have problem with this kind of criticism, they feel like they can't say anything.

It is when the Black and brown ones are the ones in the most danger of being harmed. So because white ones might not face blowback from Dave's "jokes", doesn't matter, huh?

True...that isn't why he walked away. But I remember him expressing discomfort about that when some white guy on set during the Niggards sketched laughed a bit too hard. Even if that wasn't the final straw, i'm quite sure it was a contributing factor.


>I believe that's why comedians have problem with this kind of

Then boo hoo for their sensitive asses. Clearly he CAN say anything, cuz he just did and got $60 mil for it. so their "feeling" is just them wanting free speech then wanting to silence the criticism when it comes, just as freely.

that's some hypocritical bullshit and its the exact sensitivity that they themselves complain about.

Point being, EVERYONE is sensitive..those telling the jokes AND those on the receiving end. There is nothing wrong with being sensitive.

Yes it matters but Whites shouldn't get a pass for the harm they cause just because they have something in common with Black and brown Trans.

He can say what he wants, but they can take him down. I don't believe Dave and the other comedians want to silence free speech and the criticism that comes with it. They have a problem with that community ending their career.

>that's some hypocritical bullshit and its the exact

Its not hypocritical when that community supported Joan Rivers, Lisa Lampanelli and worst.

I agree nothing wrong with being sensitive.

And that we 110% agree on.

>

When he was on inside the Actor's Studio, he seemed to imply that the $50mil would have required him to live a sheltered life that he didn't want...that the money kinda scared him at that time

clearly, he's over that lol


>
>He can say what he wants, but they can take him down.

the check cleared. he has reached the pinnacle of his career already..oh and who is they?

ultimately, he is responsible for the impact of his own words. period. you trash vulnerable people and receive career backlash for it, THEN DON'T TRASH VULNERABLE PEOPLE.

also, no you can't run into a crowded movie theater and yell "Fire".

and you can't threaten to blow up people.

WORDS MATTER.

like its simple. its like me complaining my job "took me down" cuz I stole some shit. THEN I SHOULDN'T STEAL NEXT TIME lol


I don't

whose career has been ended unfairly? i'm still waiting for that info cuz that's an irrational, strawman fear, if comedians have it. It gives them a phantom menace to rail against..and folks are falling for it


>Its not hypocritical when that community supported Joan

which community? Most certainly not the Black one.

Thanks it's been years since I watched that. Yep the money definitely scared him.

lol yes he is, fear of big checks is not an issue.


>

I don't mean a single check or payment, they can take his money and career.
They is the gatekeepers, Exec's, anybody in a position with power, money and connections.

>ultimately, he is responsible for the impact of his own words.
>period. you trash vulnerable people and receive career

It don't stop right there. Right wing radio full of people who made careers out of trashing vulnerable people,no backlash. Howard Stern didn't face backlash he got promoted and celebrated. Jeff Ross given shows to roast people.

>also, no you can't run into a crowded movie theater and yell

Yes words do matter but everything is not equal, yelling fire in a crowded theater or threatening to blow up people is not the same as a comedian telling jokes to people who paid to see him or clicked on his Netflix special.

If I stabbed someone at work should I face the same backlash/punishment that you did, because you stole something ?

If they are doing it behind the scenes, it will be hard to prove. It didn't start or stop with the Red scare but it did happen.

I think they they need to watch the Epilogue, calling that bit shaming suicide is too much. Dave is doing jokes using a Asian stereotype trope that his wife hates. That's just Dave

Dave could pack up his shit and leave for good if he wanted but he's sticking this out cause he knows he's one of the few that can push back.

I felt like there were some jokes going too far in the name of edgelording, which I guess is his style now? meh

but at least this time around it felt more like he thought about what he was gonna say regarding queer people than before. the other two specials just seemed flabby and sick and comparison. this one had more energy.

Impressions were the most hilarious part.
As were the opioid segments. Timely given there's a 572 million dollar judgment against Johnson and Johnson for their role in it all.

This was my point

Being familiar with Dave's style...I have to remind myself alot of times...he's not just telling a story

He's using all of these descriptions, etc...to setup a joke

...that segment...just kinda...ends...

Plenty of funny comments during the delivery...as you pointed out

But...Ts are making the trip take longer...isn't the pay off.

I'm not critiquing his ability to tell a funny and interesting story

In response to Reply # 142


  

          

It wasn’t the best joke in the special, but the payoff was there. You just didn’t dig it.

I thought it was nuanced, probably because he workshopped it in a San Fran club where the audience was (more likely than not) attuned to LGBTQ culture and probably gave him an idea of what would and wouldn’t work.

Where he talked about building the material for this set and answered questions from the audience?


I think the best part was when he told the story about the transgender woman in SF (whom he actually posted a pic of in the credits too) that enjoyed his whole set, including his transgender jokes. How she said that she read about him in the NY times and how they criticized him for normalizing R. Kelly for making jokes about him on Chappelle show but how they didn't give him credit for normalizing Transgenders by making jokes about them.

I also found the bit about the Comedy Central Standards department telling him he couldn't say the F-word and her response as to why he could say the N-word but not the F-word.

I would have loved to hear the response to "but I'm not a n*gger either". I wish he'd finished the story.

Hope my face isn’t in this shit. That being said, the Jussie joke was one of the hardest times I laughed (and one of the only parts I remember smh)

he does the impressions... and the audience pipes in with who they think it is off the bat, that had me laughing before he answered

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

seemed like there was a really dope relationship with the audience where they understood what was going on and appreciated it.

hes kinda losing a step on the generally observational stuff tho.

this was a decent waste of time...which is all i pretty much ask for nowadays. my expectations are down across the board on modern comedy. im not sure theres anyone alive that can produce the type of timeless/classic set we were fortunate to come up on.

132. "The majority of the audience are huge Dave fans"
In response to Reply # 130


          

the idea of a bunch of people going to his show not knowing what to expect is kind of head scratching to me.

It happened to me with CK tho. I didn’t know much about him before I went to his show and he wasn’t that good. Audience groaned at his Black joke which made him pack it up early. It was a bad joke tho.. wasn’t funny at all.

I think when it happens to Dave he will pivot or adjust but as long as the jokes hit, and IMO he was firing on all cylinders in this last special, folks will have to deal with it or just move on from him.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

He's one of the best comedians out here, but obviously he's falling behind the times and there's nothing shocking or spectacular about these jokes imo. Felt more like a grown head whose jokes and humour isn't hitting like that anymore, maybe it is shock and awe to some, but he's not sharp like he used to be and the content really isn't original or thought provoking. Just... meh

Dave Chappelle will always be Dave Chappelle tho & he'll always be one of the greats even though he aint got it like that no mo, judging from this special in particular

He took it back to traditional comedy. His pacing, his dialogue, the discomfort. I really enjoyed it and he has proved that he can deliver thoughtful funny content. Can't tell if it will hold up over time. More about contemporary issues.

But America is about speaking from the heart without condemnation. He resurrected that people want to be able to say whatever the fuck they want to say. The internets have people pretending to be politically correct. Everybody has some shit. At least we can laugh and admit it.

148. "I'm done with "Comedian OUTRAGE CULTURE""
In response to Reply # 0


          

The change with Dave has been that he's attacking things he feels are attacking him - and since I'm not him I don't care a lot.

And he's OUTRAGED over OUTRAGE culture.

He's a victim AND a victim blamer.

He did seem a little more connected during this one that the last one I watched. And a littler healthier and more connected.

His voice is going bad- he'll sound like Lucille Ball soon. (Lucille Ball yelling at Mr. Mooney.)

Lenny Bruce sucked when all he talked about was being attacked (and he was unfairly and viciously attacked - way worse than Dave or Seinfeld.)

Carlin flirted with this in the 88-91 period - but by 1992 he was back in his right mind (well, until his wife died - and then he's depressed and insane.)


And yes, I know SOME of these jokes Dave told that were dumb as fuck are the jokes you tell your friends when being "naughty" or "silly" but it's doesn't hit with me when he's telling it in front of a sycophantic audience. (They felt sycophantic to me - or maybe more like SUPERfans.)

If Dave keeps this up he'll get fanbase only the black Joe Rogan can dream of.

But no matter what we think: He got paid.

In response to Reply # 151


  

          

It was more about - look at what happened to Kevin. He made bad jokes, said he wasn't going to apologize for them AGAIN, quit his dream gig, then goes on a 6 week apology tour only for people to still label him a homophobe.

I guess the point is why apologize to a group of people who just want to "cancel" whatever celebrity this week if you're just going to be labeled problematic anyway. Lean all the way in, and don't sacrifice your artistic beliefs.

That's how I took it, anyway.

i.e. the alphabet people

IRT Jimmy Kimmel
prior misogyny
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLHhEiV_9tk
= ok
previous racism
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aPbefau2Zc
= ok

offend the LGBTQ community = outta here.

it's the selectivity in the application of the outrage

there is literally no one that doesn't have something problematic in their past

labeling Kevin a homophobe also reminds me of Dave's Juicy SmooL-YAY comment...racist/homophobes aren't watching empire

Kev lives in LA. Would a homophobe move to LA?

It's apparant to me, from Dave's routines, he knows more LGBTQ members than I do...but he still gets labeled a homophobe

Is it even possible to be in the entertainment business AND a homophobe?

none of it makes sense to me.

You're right...might as well not even worry about it...tell your jokes...let those easily offended be offended = fuck em, do you.

If the pitch forks come out, they come out

Yes and yes. That's almost like saying a white person who works in the sports world couldn't possibly be racist.

I def think exposure could play a huge factor in opening one's eyes, as you start seeing people as people your preconceived notions begin to crumble. I was pretty homophobic growing up. Working in media definitely played a huge role in recognizing my own ignorance. It's a safer space for the alphabet car but it's also not non existent.

All that said, i agree Hart was done dirty, and as you said damn near everyone has shitty things in their past, and all this cherry picking is bullshit.

the owners are white

in entertainment, you have writers, producers and studio execs that are gay

I would imagine, a talent that is genuinely homophobic, is going to struggle for work in hollywood

...and would have a hard time with daily activities living in west la...

in your sports analogy...would a black owner hire a yt racist subordinate?

would that yt racist subordinate even be able to work for a black owner?

you asked if it's even possible to be in the entertainment business and homophobic

the answer is yes. I've seen it plenty times over in the past 15 years. same goes for conservatives who make a similar claim. There's plenty of both. It's just not the norm.

or that a homophobe would never ever move to LA.

that's ridiculous.

the audience came across like "we have to laugh, it's Dave"

I'll admit when Jay Z or Kendrick Lamar drop something that isn't good

153. "The Epilogue was great "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

and showed there's a level of self-awareness in his material that a lot of critics don't give him credit for. Keeping it a "secret track" was a good reminder that if you're just there for the jokes, Dave Chappelle is probably not for you at this point of his career.

A lot of people are comparing this to Aziz's special but imo they're two different performers. I think Aziz is better suited for theater and drawing connections for the audience. Someone pointed above that Dave's style can have long/drawn out setups, which make more sense for comedy rooms as opposed to a big stage. That style can be a little too intimate to translate well for a Netflix special.

>fan of his.

And frankly his trite and apologetic response to the allegations actually further proves, to me at least, that he isn't a phony. He's complex and contradictory like the rest of us. But he owned up to his shitty mistake(s).

And I can't really speak to whether or not he's "phony" based on the book cause I never read it. For all I know he had an entire section of the book dedicated to how you can be the most woke straight man alive but horniness can *still* take over and make you do shitty things. Haha. Probably not, just saying.

Anyway - your point is valid, but like I said I think the fact that he addressed the issue head on and didn't deny or hide from it, or hide behind some bullshit excuse, only makes him *more* genuine to me, not phony.

But all that aside, my response was speaking strictly about his presence on stage and in his TV shows and such. I never found him phony at all, personally.

In response to Reply # 177


  

          

he’s still trying to find himself.

I’m a fan... but so far in his career he’s been:

Hipster comedian
Starfucker comedian
Suave Relationship Comedian
Nebbish Woody Allen/Louis CK comic actor
And now he’s intimate sit on the stool let me talk to you about some real shit comedian

To me... he’s doing whatever he thinks will sell at any given moment.

And I reiterate he’s been my dawg since Human Giant & Flight of the Conchords

I just look at all of that as "growing up" and evolving as a person. But that's just my view of it, like I said I understand your position.

The reason I don't see it as phony is because his general temperament has remained the same throughout all of those comedic iterations. So I don't necessarily see it as "phony" coming from him, or like .. that he's a sellout or anything like that. I just see it as someone who *was* a hipster who then suddenly became super famous almost overnight and therefore had different stories to tell so he *was* a starfucker. And simultaneously he started getting laid more frequently so he had more perspective to use for his relationship stuff, so he *was* the suave relationship guy. And so on and so forth. It comes off as honest to me, and furthermore I prefer he evolve his comedic chops rather than rehash the same jokes and/or the same TYPES of jokes for years.

but they seem like gimmicks. And I don’t feel he’s doing it for artistic reasons. He seems uncomfortable to me. But he’s not young. So I’m guessing he’s gonna continue trying out new personas until one sticks.

It took Chris Rock a while to settle in from doing Eddie Murphy rip-off to Martin rip offs. So we’ll see.

Most stand-ups that I think are great stay consistently within their stand-up persona.

I liked him a lot him up until he became "Suave relationship comedian." It felt like an absolute & complete flip of his prior persona. And he wasn't super-great at it either. After that, IMO, he became just "meh."

Kanye's had so many different personas during his career but was always guaranteed to adopt whatever sound (work with whatever artists) was bubbling and make it mainstream.

167. "The best joke teller alive in the world"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

layered jokes
non-linear jokes
tragic jokes
thoughtful jokes
insightful jokes
hilarious jokes

I don't understand, even if you're offended by some of the topics touched, how anyone can't recognize his greatness and appreciate the artistic mastery.

I'm no opera fan, I barely appreciate it and I never listen to it for plain enjoyment. But as a supporter of the arts, I paid to see Andrea Bocelli at the Hollywood Bowl a while back, only so I could witness a master perform live.

Netflix specials are next to being free entertainment, his performance might as well be a gift. We need to appreciate what we have while we have it.

...and every critical hit piece I read in response was lazy and simplistic, some authors even admitted not watching anything beyond snippets.
