Watched Chappelle's new specials. The first had some funny stuff and felt like a legitimate concert film. The second is astounding. It's just him talking to 50 people about shit going on that week, that day, and it's funny. And fucking ballsy. He says shit no other famous people would. He talked about Louis CK and it was heartfelt and brave and, man, I just admire his skill. He's peerless.


i really, really enjoyed both of these specials. much more than the previous netflix specials he put out. i loved the two different settings for these, shows how versatile he can be. that second one was full of really poignant and touching commentary.

i'm also laughing at the fact that people are "up in arms" about a few of the jokes he made, which proved his point exactly.

goddammit, why do i even skim the headlines of some websites.

Yeah the two new Chappelle specials are great. Much, much better than the previous specials he put out recently.

I agree. I nearly didn't watch these because the last two sucked. But I was bored and it Netflix was pushing it on me hard.

I thought Dave Chappelle’s The Bird Revelation was super good.

RIP Barry Crimins. Way more influential to today's comedy scene than a lot of people realize. Watch "Call Me Lucky" if you've got the time.

Went out to see Nate Bargatze tonight. His delivery is fantastic. He was getting big laughs from, if you go by how the mc was received, a pretty discerning crowd, and he was doing it without swearing. Tha always impresses me. So much harder. Going through the list of comedians I’ve personally seen who didn’t swear - Seinfeld! Steven Wright, and this guy. After the show I wondered why I don’t go out for more live comedy.

Cosby kept it pretty clean. On stage, anyway.
