Dave takes us on a ride
26 March 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This was filmed in Austin, Texas in 2015. The two years delay does leave some of the jokes dated. Paula Deen and Ebola are no longer hot takes. It's a problem that Netflix should watch out for in the future.

Dave Chappelle starts with a bunch of kids throwing a banana peel at him. He's also doing some gay jokes which is always a little awkward. I wouldn't recommend Louis C.K. to concentrate on doing black jokes either. It's always coaxed by him that he has nothing against gays but... It's kinda funny but he's also spending too much time with it.

He gets into personal stuff that's not always that personal. I get a sense that most of it is spun from slivers of truth. Did he get a blackmail tape? Possibly but the comedy embellishments don't feel real. He definitely didn't get two tapes. As usual, he's very funny with the material. There are plenty of laughs as he takes us on a ride but the car is not the newest and it's not a classic either.
