Does anyone else watch this show? I think it is one of the funniest shows on TV. It's pretty offensive, to everyone, but it's all in good fun. Some of my favorite sketches are Li'l Jon, oh my god now my sister and I laugh our heads off whenever we har his song!!! It's on Comedy Central Wednesdays and sometimes on Saturdays, but not this past week for some reason. Unfortunately when it's on Saturday, it's the same time as Mad TV and SNL, so I always switch between the three. :D

Yeah, i watch this show religiously. I must say that it's probably the funniest show on TV right now, if not in years. I think a lot of the sketches are pretty risky and that makes them hella funnier. I'm also in college now and i can safely say that, "WHAT?!" "OK!!!" and "YEAH!!" have taken over "hello!" and whatnot while roaming around town on the weekends. I can't wait for season 2 on DVD! cheers! :D

I watch it quite often too. I think the funniest segments are Charlie Murphys true hollywood stories. The Rick James one was hilarious. "Im Rick James, .....!" The Lil John ones are funny too. WHAT??? I cant think of one segment that didnt have me laughing. SNL and MadTV are lame compared to Show.

I've been watching the show since day 1, it's really funny. There are some bits that feel really hackneyed, and a few that are just being carryed by old cheap stereotypes, but there are a lot of brilliant moments as well that challenge and make fun of "old cheap stereotypes". The Lil Jon gag was funny once, when he did it the second time in that ep I felt like he was milking it but it still had laughs, but then he brought it back twice more and it seemed derivative (read: Mad TV, SNL ;)) even though both bits actually did have something original to each. Charlie Murphy's 2 major stories were pretty funny, I was surprised they carried entire eps. The "I Know Black People" gameshow was funny too, I was dying when the Korean grocer dude guessed what Bookman on Good Times did without ever seeing the show.

The one thing I don't really care all that much for is the musical bits at the end, they're played too straight, and though it is commendable to see different flavors from what you'd normally get on most commercial radio & TV, it's kinda a flat note to end almost every show.

I agree, it's kinda flat to end the show with the music bits. I love the Lil John skits as well. It cracks me up when he begins to talk in a civilized tone, then all of a sudden burst out in "Yyyyyyyyyyyyyea!" My fav skits thus far for Chappelle's Show have to be Samuel Jackson Beer and Blackzilla.

"Hey Dave, I have a secret to tell you . . .
Want to increase size of your p****?"
Oh man that was so funny, and so true. I love the Prince episode of Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories. "That's game . . . blouses." :D

Blackzilla, that's going WAAAAY back to like the 3rd ep. Another season 1 bit I really liked was Dave living his life as if it were GTA:Vice City.

The internet mall bit was really funny, Ron Jeremy was a great surprise addition, even if he is a media slut. ;)

I love Charlie Murphys true hollywood stories. Man that has to be the funniest stuff I have ever seen. Rick James looks all messed up, but it's great. I nearly wet myself watching that episode. Did anyone see the skit where Oprah called and said she was pregnant with Dave's child, and Dave goes in and quits his job at comedy central, then uses Oprah's money until the child is born and he finds it's not his kid. Now that is good stuff!!!!!

I love this show.

The Charlie Murphy stories with Rick James has to be the funniest one yet.

I also liked the Black White Supremacist from the first season.

I also feel that the music is taking up valuable sketch time, especially in a 30 minute show. Of course, I never liked having music on my comedy shows anyway.

Music bits are straight out of old variety show corn, alongside jugglers and contortionists, which itself is just a throwback to vaudeville. The only time they work is when they tie into a sketch, like Chappelle's recent "White folks CAN dance, but..." sketch (really a short film).

"Cocaine is one h . . l of a drug."

I just about laughed everytime they replayed that Rick James quote.

Chapelle is one funny guy and he while he does the push the envelope with racism and vulgarity, I think he is cutting-edge and refreshing.

You can always win my laughter on poo-poo and pee humor, so that is why I liked last week's episode where he talks about how R. Kelly was innocent and how peeing can be digitally inserted into video. To prove his point, he whizzed all over the prosecutor, saying "See. Did I just do that?"

The one sketch of the family of whose name I will not mention for it is a racist word (it ain't a stretch to think of it, because they say the word about 85 times per episode) was full of irony and tummy-tickling humor.

Season 1 is on DVD, my brother got it for our birthday, and we have had much joy watching the different episodes, our favorite being Clayton Biggs, the "black white supremacist."

Holy crap!! That skit was HILARIOUS!!! When the prosecutor asked him what it would take for him to believe the video and he said, "I'd need to see R. Kelly, the girl with two forms of government ID, 4 of my friends and (whomever) taking notes and R. Kelly's Grandmother" i nearly lost it. When she was holding up the ID's while still getting rained on and then the granny said, "That's my robert; always peeing on people!!" I lost it and laughed hysterically.

I got the season 1 DVD's yesterday; i love the Clayton Biggs one and i especially love the Jedi Scandal one. "Get high, do you?" lol I cannot wait for season 2 on DVD! cheers!! :D

Hey, my mind is a bit foggy right now, but am I correct in remembering a sketch similar to the Real World in which that white college guy's girlfriend comes for a visit and ends up "getting together" with the guy's roommate ? Oh man, that was ridiculously funny.

Last night's episode was pretty good, but nasty as hell. I liked the puppets the best. :D

LOL!!! That part was hilarious. I couldnt stop laughing and even when i think about it i began to laugh out loud. Just the mental image of him scraping his boots against the couch and cursing out loud is too funny.

I like the "When keeping it real goes wrong" segments too. The one with the corporate guy who ended up working at the gas station was funny. "WU-TANG!"

I've probably seen the Rick James episode 5 times by now and I laugh just as hard as I did the first time.
There are so parts that really get me:
When Rick James pops up and punches Charlie Murphy in the forehead.
When Charlie kicks Rick across the room.
"Darkness!"
"F- your couch, n- ! F- your couch!"
"What did the five fingers say to the face?"

I strongly recommend buying the DVD for Season 1. I've seen a lot of stuff that I don't remember seeing on the original show, stuff that is just too controversial or distasteful for television. The regular sketches are unedited and you can hear all the swears :sur: and stuff.

BF, I do remember the R. Kelley video (not the infamous one :D ) in where Dave mimics peeing on people. Dang hilarious!

My new favorite expression, which I can credit the show with, is "squeezing off some hot butt mud." :)

Oh man! Last night's episode was SOOOOOOOOO damn funny, I thought I was going to wet myself from laughing so hard, especially after South Park's hilariously gruesome ending. The Wayne Brady beginning was funny, Joe Rogan doing the Fear Factor one was entertaining, a little long but I laughed, and then it just got hilarious. The part with Dave getting his show back from Wayne showing us the flashback of their night together was so damn funny, Wayne Brady was surprisingly effective playing himself secretly a thug, and when the ho thanks Dave for keeping Wayne Brady from choking her out and Dave yells "run, b**ch, run for your life!!!" I was crying with laughter. The whole segment was so funny I watched it twice! This ep is going to be very hard to top.

Lowly Bantha Cleaner
04-08-2004, 09:56 PM
It was a nice little way to break the perception that people have of Wayne Brady, by making him a gangster thug. The premise was that since ABC cancelled the Wayne Brady show, that Wayne has lost it with his "goody-goody image." So he was showing Dave Chapelle, who lampooned him earlier in the season, what he truly was. My favorite parts from last nights episode are when Wayne went to the group of prostitutes to hustle out some money, and when the cop pulled them over and Dave sang the bit from his coffee creamer commercial. "Hey, my mother-in-law just loves you."

So what did you guys think of last nights episode? I thought the civil rights skit was funny. I didnt mind the Lil Jon part either, i found it humorous when i heard the real Lil Jon speak quietly, im so used to hearing him hollering on a song. I skipped on the Outkast performance at the end, not like i cant turn on the radio and hear one of their songs spinning.

JediTricks
04-15-2004, 09:38 PM
I thought the civil rights one was funny, but it started strong enough that I thought it would have worked better if they played it more straight, less of the "caca doodoo" 3rd-grader jokes and sticking more to the theme.

The Lil John one actually cracked me up, it felt like a good way to END that bit for good (hint hint ;)).

The Black Bush one was sorta funny, but it seemed a little slapped-together, could have been written tighter.

I also fast-forwarded past the musical performance at the end.

All in all, it wasn't as good as last week's, but it was entertaining.

04-26-2004, 02:11 PM
Dayum! I just started watching this last week (with the "Best of Season 2 Part 1 Except Rick James" episode). That Wayne Brady bit is the funniest thing I think I've ever seen in a skit comedy show, beating even stalwarts like Homie D Clown and Toonces the Driving Cat.

"What's this? Mister Franklin is lonely. No, don't sorry me. Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a b****?"

Season Three is on hiatus. After signing a Comedy Central record $50 million two-year deal a few months back, Chapelle's season premier, originally intended for May 31st, has been postponed indefinitely. No official reason has been given, but he isn't showing up for scheduled shooting. There are all sorts of rumors to why he isn't coming including Dave becoming frustrated with the creative differences between him and the network, the fact that he is on drugs and needs help, or is he has been overwhelmed with all the success that he has faced the last two years and can't handle it.

Hope that Dave comes to his senses, whatever his problems may be, and realizes that his fans miss the show and want to see him back.

Looks like Dave is starting to get back to work with taping the rest of Season 3 . . . although nothing is official.


<<Dave Chappelle is apparently ready to get back to business.


The comedian met with Comedy Central President Doug Herzog Friday in Los Angeles for the first time since flying the coop for the South African "spiritual retreat" that effectively forced production on the third season of Chappelle's Show to shut down indefinitely.


Comedy Central spokesman Tony Fox did not reveal any details of the meeting, including when--or if--Chappelle would return to the network.


However, under the terms of the $50 million contract Chappelle signed last summer, he's supposedly locked into a production deal with the network through 2006.


Last month, Herzog said he did not expect Chappelle's Show to return to Comedy Central this year. The third season of the show was to have premiered on May 31. >>

It's already been over a year since the last new ep of the show, I've given up on seeing another one, even if they do crank out another series it's too likely that it'll be weaker than the first and second seasons (I'd still watch probably tho').

WOW isn't that giving up kinda quick there? I doubt another season will be "cranked out" since they were half way done with filming before Dave left for Africa and also Dave is said to be picky about the show always wanting to top what has been done prior.

Kinda quick?!? It's been 14 months since anything new, even if they don't have a complete season they could have put out a couple new eps to tide us over - most shows shoot only a few weeks prior to airing and shoot as the season progresses, even South Park with its chinzty 7 episode-seasons does it that way - but instead they leave us hanging for an entire year on a half-hour skit comedy show. Not 1 measily 22-minute episode! Hell, you cut in one of those boring music segments and now we're talking 17 minutes of actual show, there have been some shows out there that cranked out that much every DAY yet we haven't been given that much in over a YEAR.

06-12-2005, 11:48 PM
Season's I and II established that there is some time between new shows unlike a standard show's last episode in May and new stuff that fall. I look at Chappelle's Show like Deadwood, The Soprano's and other short run tv shows. I'd like to see 20ish episodes a season but by keeping the volume down each show is more solid. There were several delays which has pushed back us seeing season III. Would I like to see some of the new stuff already shot? Of course I would, but I'd rather wait and see 13 or so weeks of new episodes then see a few episodes and be teased then have to wait for the second half of the season to be filmed. Lets say there never is a Chappelle's Show again I would hope to see the stuff already worked on put out on a dvd, unless that happens I can wait for the rest of the mateial to be filmed.

The last ep of Chappelle's Show season 1 was April '03, not counting any of the "mixtape" eps, the first ep of Chappelle's Show season 2 was January '04. Meanwhile, the last ep of Chappelle's show season 2, again not counting "mixtapes", was in mid-April '04 and January '05 was half a year ago, and we STILL have no idea if or when we'll see another new episode. I find that extremely frustrating. I can handle the "short season order" of 13 eps, Chappelle's Show is hardly original there, but it's been 14 months with the only news right now being "maybe sometime in the future or perhaps never, but at least we're talking".


BTW, Slicker's current sig+'tar is too funny, made especially grand because it's not just another recycling of the most popular catch phrase from the scene. :D

It is disturbing its been so long since we've seen new shows and its such and unknown as to when or IF there will ever be new material for us to enjoy.

Also good call with Slicker's sig + tar great stuff I chuckle everytime I see it! lol

I don't think that a delay in production automatically means that the show will be weaker when it returns.

BTW, Slicker's current sig+'tar is too funny, made especially grand because it's not just another recycling of the most popular catch phrase from the scene. :DIt's my little way of saying "Hurry the hell up." Doubtful it'll work but who knows. I just hope he doesn't sell out and try to be funny instead of just letting his natural humor come out.

You are right JimJam, I think the show is creative and smart, I'm just frustrated and have low expectations in the face of vast uncertainty.

I live in Dayton, Ohio. Dave lives with his family in a small community just outside of town. According to this morning's Dayton Daily News, he did a suprise stand up spot of new material at comedy club downtown called 'Wileys' last night. The article went on to say that he seemed to be in good spirits and signed autograph's et. after the show. No word on returning to his show.

Also in town was Bruce Campbell of 'Evil dead' and more fame. Screened his latest movie at a theater that is no more than a stone's throw away from where Dave did his stand up. Sounds like quite a night downtown for those lucky enough to be there.

I just bought season two last weekend and have been laughing my arse off.

Can you believe in the three years that the show has premiered only twenty-five episodes have been filmed (and 1 of those episodes was an outtakes show)? How difficult is it to come up with more, especially considering the show is only 1/2 hour long with 4-5 minutes of that some musical filler.

I also appreciate the bonus material included in the package.

You are correct LBC that the total number of shows is low, however keep in mind the amount of shows per season. Its along the same lines as Deadwood, Sex in the City and all the other HBO/Showtime shows. Low number of shows but the trade off is higher quality. You have to give that to them, I mean how easy is it to come up with some of the golden bits they've done?

Dave Chappelle won't be involved with them, no intros from him. Rumor has it this is a move to get Chappelle back to the bargaining table, but I think it's just a last-gasp move to keep the series viable for CC to rerun for the next year.

I thought the rumor was that six or seven episodes were filmed already for the new season. Oh, well at least we are seeing them. CC was the most lucrative show in the history of the channel, so it is no surprise that they are milking it for all that it's worth.

Wonder if we can see signs of Dave's "stress" somewhere in these episodes?

JediTricks
12-06-2005, 09:31 PM
He says that he didn't leave over stress, he left due to the direction the show was taking, I believe meaning the way it was starting to be written and controlled by the network but I'm not totally sure.

No big deal to me, since Dave isn't coming back they could roll out Charlie Murphy or another cast member to do the intro w/out a audience. I think CC is doing this so they can get some money out of what was shot this year and I'm sure it will show up on dvd at some point as well.

Wow, you guys are cold-hearted, there was almost nothing I *didn't* find funny in that. I think Dave was right when he said no matter how good it is, everybody will always say it's not as good as last season. The only part that didn't work was the rap songs as CNN, that one needed better setup, delivery, and another ending - it still had funny stuff though. I watched most of it and felt like "how could Dave walk away from this? This is good stuff, expressive and funny and fresh, how could he not see past all the side-crap and just do more of this?"

I thought it was good stuff BUT the thing is all those bits were put together to make a 30 min. show. For example we got two "Dave is super rich" bits which I don't think would have happened in one show had there been an entire season. Also there wasn't a "long" skit rather it was a bunch of short skits. Again I think that was due to the fact it was put together with what footage was already shot.

JediTricks
07-11-2006, 03:51 PM
The length of the sketches felt fine to me, I'd rather have short ones that have REAL endings than long ones that simply peter out (as so many sketches often do, not just Chappelle's Show but all the sketch comedy series) - of course, a good long sketch that has a real ending is probably best, but can't have it all.

As for the 2 "I'm rich!" sketches, I think they were meant to be part of the first ep, the whole thing was a big deal to Chappelle and this is how he wanted to deal with the hype, get it out of the way first while the question was weighing heavily on the audience's mind. But we'll never really know I suppose.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
07-11-2006, 07:13 PM
Thought I posted here before, but maybe not . . .

I thought it was fantastic. It was classic Chappelle; exactly what I was looking for.

Some of Donnell Rawlings' hamming-it-up was a little annoying, though, and it seemed like his and Charlie Murphy's intros weren't scripted as well as they could have been. But, whatever; the skits were great.

The pixie sketch in the second episode DID go too far, I think. The Hispanic and white pixies weren't too bad but the black and Asian ones went too far and weren't really making any social commentary. When Dave was responding to his own pixie, you could kind of tell that he was already disgusted with himself for doing that bit; it seemed more "real" than acting. I liked that they addressed that Dave disliked these sketches instead of ignoring it.

I thought the Howard Dean bit was pretty good, but it would've been better if it was aired closer to the original incident (as was originally planned, of course).

JediTricks
07-18-2006, 01:15 PM
I thought this was a weak ep, nothing really delivered, and Dave was right, that pixie sketch was not a jab at racial stereotypes, but simply using them as the comedy. This isn't the first time they've been guilty of it on the show either, it's like Mencia in that regard, where they don't really try to understand what is in another race's head, they just fall back on cheap obvious stereotypes for the humor or even the statement - that's not making fun of the use of stereotypes at all. I thought the black pixie at least had a point to make though, that some in the black community were living up to negative stereotypes - minstreling and shuckin & jiving - so when he did that bit with the Cribs one I thought there was going to be some real humor AND some biting commentary, but instead it quickly faded into cheap stupid racist jokes that had nothing to say except "stereotypes!" I've known black people who avoid fried chicken and watermelon specifically because of the stereotypes.

I was thumbing through the Best Buy ad that comes in my Sunday newspaper and seen that this 3rd season was going to be out on DVD today. Im passing, i havent found any of the skits to be hilarious plus i dont know what other content, if any, is included in the dvd.

I thought the racial pixie sketch was the funniest thing I've seen since Rick James. I have no problem with the message of the skit, and I have no problem with the pixies being ridiculous caricatures of odious caricatures. The black face pixie causes considerably more discomfort than the others, though. The others were silly, but the black face is considerably more sinister in my mind, based on our history. I remember my initial reaction when he popped up was, "oh no!"

The ones that were funniest to me were the Asian pixie and the latino pixie. Although, maybe the latino one was the worst, because every other race tells their pixie to go to hell, but the latino guy is reduced to calling his el diablo and running out of the store.

The one thing I appreciated about the show is that it wasn't afraid to discuss stereotypes and crack on everybody and make fun of them, because it seems to me that America often wants to pretend that racism is a thing of the past now that the Jim Crow era is over.

I
crack on everybody That's the one reason why I loved the show. Unlike Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, and D.L. Hughley, Chappelle made fun of black people (possibly even moreso) than white people. I'm as white as white can be but I love hearin' a good white person joke.


Now, back to the racial pixies. I watched it the other day for the first time and I cried. The Asian was the funniest. "Herro, Rara"

I thought the minstrel pixie bit at least was saying something, that black people today still feel they have to cope with the negative stigma of the last 200 years of cheap stereotypes. The other pixie bits were simply cashing in their jokes off cheap stereotypes without saying anything about them except "here's a cheap stereotype... that's the joke".

The latino guy's reaction was funny, I had forgotten that he runs out of the store, that was pretty good, it just wasn't saying anything.
