Dave Chappelle is BACK. (again)… (AGAIN).


It started with “The Age Of Spin”, and has spun out of control from there with the resurgence of Dave Chappelle. He’s gone from Comedy Central show host to legend as soon as he quit the Chappelle show, and seemingly out of nowhere, his return rocked the comedy scene. The promotional ads for his newest Netflix special seem to ask the same question, how do you finish a run of HOURS of comedy that has been this prolific. Since Chappelle started his first special with Morgan Freeman narrating, comedy fans and audiences alike have been waiting for an epic conclusion while never wanting them to end at the same time. Take a look as some of the promos as you may be waiting anxiously for TOMORROW, October 5th, 2021. ‘The Closer’ can only be followed by the wait for whatever Chappelle decides to do next.

Dave Chappelle returned to television after a considerable absence to host Saturday Night Live this weekend.  The comedian and once king of Comedy Central delivered a hefty batch of President Trump jokes and sketches but was asked leading up to the show whether or not he would bring any of his Chappelle’s Show characters to the show. He says he originally wasn’t planning on it but recently saw an episode of The Walking Dead which inspired him to bring them to NBC.  What ensued was maybe one of the greatest 5 minutes sketches of all time, done in true Chapelle Show fashion.  Check the method.

There aren’t too many people raised in my generation who weren’t familiar with the epic genius of the Chappelle Show.  If there are those who are unfamiliar with the show, there’s not a doubt in my mind that they’ve heard the words “I’m RICK JAMES B*TCH” at least once.  The show and its comedy were both unforgettable and edgy to the point where every episode in the show’s second season was a hit in its own way.  One of my favorite sketches was the “Black Bush” sketch, where Dave Chappelle illustrated (quite well) how a less cunning George W. Bush may have appeared to the general public.  The original sketch can be seen here or by clicking the picture above.

Here however, are some bits and pieces that were left out of the Black Bush sketch.  For anyone who’s filmed anything scripted before, you know as well as I do, that some of the best moments come from things off script.  The outtakes from Chappelle’s ‘Black Bush’ sketch are no exception.  Check the method to relive this hilarious sketch from 2004.
