I just finished the first hour of the new Chappelle. All the best jokes were rape jokes.

I'm watching the first one right now. I've enjoyed Chappelle's stuff in the past but this is doing nothing for me. 27 minutes in and I haven't really laughed once

His impression of his wife's friend Stewart is kind of funny

Oh no, I loved it. It was a great hour. And that hour's best jokes were the rape jokes. They were really good rape jokes.

He just did the whole "literalistically deconstruct an old piece of pop culture absurdity" thing. About the Care Bears. When did he become so hacky? Does it happen automatically when you turn 40?

The one I just watched ended on a high note but there was a long period of ... just, nothing. Really boring jokes.

I can see how one could feel that way if they did not already have a deep and abiding love for Dave Chappelle buried in the most sacred parts of their soul.

:-( I can understand it though. Chappelle's always had a tendency to set a mellow vibe for a while. But I love it; he takes his time setting up punch lines and building to a fervor.

yeah I don't think it's that since Killing Them Softly is one of my all time favorite stand up specials too

It's not the style I have a problem with, it's just many of his jokes in this weren't very good, especially in the first half

That was the best Louis stand-up special in a few years.
