Yeah, leave it to a black guy to discriminate against another black guy because white people like him and then turn around and try to make him look "cool" because he is more hood, gtfoh!

I'm watching this anyway but he is black american comedy and Louis CK is white american comedy
Obviously people aren't so intellectually stunted that they can only have one but those two are the essence of America comedy

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, why do we need him again?

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😊

Author Tungadunger ( ago)
My theory is that Oprah bullied Dave Chappelle into quitting so that his humour would not interfere with the Obama Presidential campaign.

Youtube is run by Muslim's. The Ceo of Google is Name in Sundar, and you wonder why isis videos clear the graphic content filter? Fuck Looper and a washed up failed comedian's who only use race to get laughs.#500 churches shot down 428 mosques opened#

Fucking sell out

Author ddkeegs 888 ( ago)
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?

Author Don ellis ( ago)
Comedy Central needs to pay him the whole fucking 300,000,000 they own him part of the reason he walked out it's because he made them over 500 million and they only gave him 10%they fucked him over on his contract

Dave Chappelle is a Hollywood clone now. He was murdered by Oprah Winfrey and the black crusaders. He will never return to the spot light and "fight the power" (social constructs) like he used to.

Author Proinsias Cassidy ( ago)
I have this theory that President Obama asked Dave Chappelle to host Saturday Night live to sort of quell the storm of the 2016 election. Specifically because New York was going full triggered, and everyone was freaking out at the time. Most of the skits appeared biased, but if you watch them objectively you can tell they had a purpose to calm the masses. He even makes that apparent with his close. Man Comedy Central fucked up big time, they know that South Park is the only thing keeping them afloat and with the last season their days are numbered.

2 bad his a clone now and the real dave is prob dead. Notice how different he is now. Dave would never sell.

There is nothing important about this man...he's gives me the creeps. I have no need to know him or see him do anything. he speaks black speak - which is all about black men being raped by the white man. I got to go - keep kissing asses - homo sapiens.

i like DC but honestly a lot of comedians talk about these issues. And if MTV would just show music videos instead of these worthless reality shows we wouldn't need comedians to spotlight new music.
