This is a brilliant season premiere - fast paced and loaded with belly laughs. The show opens strong with a ripper impersonation of Samuel L Jackson, Chappelle sending up Jackson's foul-mouthed demeanour with gusto.
The next set deals with Chappelle's protests against NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg with an amusing montage of his ancestorial line of dissention, it then moves on to campaign ads as Dave runs for congress pitching a health care scam and a plan to stave off teen pregnancy which is drop-dead funny.
The 3rd Set demonstrates that things look better in Slow Motion - the first two skits, In a Laundromat and In a Nightclub are fairly predictable but they're worth sitting through for the punchline in the 3rd skit which accounts for the biggest belly laugh you'll have all week!
The final set is a high concept piece - The Racial Draft, it's more clever than funny - except for the occasional comment from Chappelle the commentator. Also the White commentators' reaction to the OJ Simpson trade is noteworthy, but overall this skit gets by on being controversial and clever rather than LOL funny.
Watch For: The Robot dancing guy who turns up twice.
