Show Summary

"Chappelle's Show" takes comedian Dave Chappelle's own personal joke book and brings it to life, with episodes consisting of sketches, man-on-the-street pieces, and pop culture parodies introduced by Dave in a stand-up format in front of a studio audience. Chappelle's unique point-of-view on the world provides a hilarious, defiant and sometimes dangerous look at American culture, including music, movies, television, advertising, current events, and everyday life situations.

    • the greatest sketch show ever!

      Chappelle's Show is not only the greatest sketch show of all time, but on of the best television shows to come around in the last 20 years. Dave brings his sharp and observational sense of humour to create some of the funniest and most quotable moments in television history. not to mention really memorable characters, even if those characters were people playing themselves. from Rick James, to Prince, Charlie Murphy, the entire player haters ball, Wayne Brady and of course Tyrone Biggums to name a few, in two short seasons Dave and crew did more quality work than most current shows do over 6-7 seasons worth.

      i also have a ton of respect for the man himself. kudos to Dave Chappelle for leaving when he wasn't comfortable and refusing to sell his soul for even fifty million dollars. it really shows his integrity and proves not all entertainers need to be famous to entertain.moreless
    • Purpose:Funny

      Daves show was never meant to be informative or proggressive. it was meant to be funny. Yes modernly we have grown, we now have a black president. yes the show is rascist. its not meant to be taken seriously, it pokes fun os people. but if you have ever seen an interview with Dave, he explains his opinions and observation as well as any talk show host. And unlike all thses other new sketch shows(pretend time) Dave ponders the irony and what ifs of the 1995-2005 urban culture. Im glad when Dave realized that we need to move forward, but i still love his show, because we can still reminise on the old ways. And because im not a humor oblivios prick who takes everything over seriously and tries to enjoy things and shows that are actually funny, i can end up laughing along with my fellow american who have been ther done that.moreless
    • Im rick james b!tch!!!!!

      This show was amazing I wish it was still on tv. It had great sketches and every episode is great but my favorite episode is the one with rick james. The show didn't run for that long it was only on for two seasons, there was also a third season but its only four episodes. Dave chappelle is missed, since his show ended in 2006 he hasn't done anything on tv but he's done stand up. I really wish he could go back to comedy central but that's sadly not going to happen. . . . . . . .moreless
    • Greatest Sketch Show Ever Made!

      In my opinion this is the best sketch comedy show ever made. From episode one the humor broke ground like nothing that had been on TV before. Unfortunately Dave Chappelle left the show due to pressures from the crew and he didn't want the fame he was getting. He also believed in Season 3 (Which Only Three Episodes Were Completed) That the racial humor was being took to far. Regardless there is still two seasons to enjoy and if you haven't seen it yet, you will see why so many people still love this show. It still plays on Comedy Central from time to time, which is understandable since it was their most successful show other then South Parkmoreless
    • This an many other "comedy" sows do not deliver.

      Like many other "Comedy" shows the comedian of course lists several jokes to the audience many involving pop culture of certain types in a humorous matter whatever the topic may be. However today's society likes for the most part in general jokes that have to deal with our society in a way. This show is nothing but silly racism which is old and dried humor. I find this show a waste of time really. If you are Black, then you should not find the show interesting because the comedian is successful and Black, I mean this show is just stereotypical and it is really that cheap humor. It just sucks in my opinion like Mencia and comedy altogether that is stand up nowadays.moreless
