It's too hard to pick a favorite comedian, but Dave is definitely in my top 2.

I'm not sure on what to say as far as 'talking points' go, so hopefully the video can spark a bit of conversation?



For those who are unable to watch videos, sorry bout your luck. If you enjoy his works enough, i'm sure you can find a way.

I love DAVE!!! AND DAMNIT I MISS HIM!!!!

The Chappelle Show was pure awesome and I miss it so! His HBO stand up shows, especially Killing Them Softly, are HILARIOUS!

I'm happy to see him back! He's still hilarious.

Thanks for posting.

Dave is an awesome guy.. I met him twice in person.. the first time was at the mall .. he shut down the tmobile store for a sidekick phone... second time was at a more posh jazz club in downtown dayton... the other brushes were because a friend of mine babysat for the family and that person was part of a web development company we tried to start that didn''t get off the ground... but I met his kids many times.. dave lives in Yellow Springs ohio .. beautiful part of our state... a huge nature reserve is there ... it's not hardcore
it's the hippy capital of the state... but that's his home town and where he lives

miniatus, i am super jealous.

I'm still watching more videos, trying to see what i've missed from Dave. I've bought the box set twice because "friends" wanted to borrow it....

Well here is a video I believe was on the DVD; out takes basically, off the dome, if you will.



Comedic genius.

Some of the stuff on his show is really funny, while other stuff is really lacking (creativity/script writing wise).

I think Chris Rock is funnier; but they're different comedians.

Not to take anything away, that stand-up clip was really funny.

Man, he looks horrible. Aging like crap.

With his sun glasses on, he looks like one of those green dudes from the original Land of the Lost.

I think Dave Chappelle's career is over because he went AWOL from his Comedy Central contractual obligations. Studio heads don't forget things like those. Chappelle had his chance and he blew it. The last I heard about DC is that he got heckled off a stage a few months ago.

He is a talented funny man, but I think the pressure got to him and he walked away from it all. His departure left the door open to other comedians like Tracy Morgan and Kevin Hart to take his place.

I agree with what nOraKat stated, Chris Rock is funnier and didactic.

I'm pretty sure he looks perfectly fine for a 40 year old man with a family.
