By that I meant he was white as ****.

He didn't say anything particularly provocative or funny and he was trying to be both. It had its moments but ja definitely his weakest work to date.

The backlash is funny though, as is the overhyping that it's receiving from people just because they have an axe to grind about political correctness.

I think you resent the angle he's taking cause it goes against your ideology but there were tons of good lines in there.

And funny how he said nothing provocative yet they're was a backlash. You're living in the twilight zone.

Lol ja gotta love how any criticism is conflated with ideological blinders. This is exactly what Chappelle was talking about tsk tsk

There were some good lines for sure, no denying that. The majority of the special rested on attempts at being offensive without much of a joke behind them, which just winds up being boring imo.

Just because I didn't find it offensive doesn't mean other people can't overreact.

Name a special that is more provocative in 2019 on Netflix.

he'd already done a Michael Jackson bit that was actually funny

where he doubts the kids

way more funny

He did a sketch on Chappelle defending Michael Jackson that was in the same brand of humor. His humor hasn't really changed. You have.

I wasn't even aware that he was doing standup, I'll look into it.

Idk, I haven't watched many. You were offended by the new Chappelle special?

Same brand of humour=/=same quality of humour.

It's not any criticism. It's your specific criticism seems that way. Like saying that he's just trying to be offensive is the same criticism Chappelle show got. So where's the disconnect? I could understand if it is just not your style of comedy, but if it is and the minute he starts staying things that go against your politics it's suddenly not funny... Yeah I'm thinking it got spoiled by your PC filter.
