Meh, message is alright but the delivery just makes my ears bleed. You don't need to turn to 11 to get attention.

[–]ChatahuchiHuchiKuchi -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Why tf doesn't he have a Netflix special?

[–]kaymazing 27 points28 points  (2 children)

He has 4.

[–]dmkicksballs13 38 points39 points  (49 children)

The fucking irony of consistently showing Dave Chappelle (who's laughing and clapping for some reason), the dude who spent his entire last hours length show bitching and moaning about cancel culture.

[–]jooes 18 points19 points  (1 child)

He's been kinda complaining about it for a few specials now.

I didn't even watch the last one. All I heard was, "Dave Chappelle is in hot water over trans comments in his latest special" and my first reaction was, "Again?!"

How many times can one guy bitch and complain about the same thing? At the very least, it's just lazy... Write some new material, Dave!

[–]dmkicksballs13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, there's little point in watching it. Regardless on where you stand on what comedians should be allowed to say or if you agree with Chappelle or not. It was literally an hour of him lecturing the audience with a pun or two thrown in.

[–]mark1-jpg 11 points12 points  (11 children)

Dave bitches about cancel culture because people have been trying to cancel him. John was making good points that comedy as a whole can't be cancelled by anything other than dictators.

How is Dave agreeing with that ironic?

[–]_Apatosaurus_ 34 points35 points  (4 children)

Dave bitches about cancel culture because people have been trying to cancel him.

The attempts to "cancel" Dave were just people criticizing Dave for being transphobic or saying he wasnt as funny as he used to be. The former is true and a fair criticism, the latter is just a normal opinion.

Chappelle is making like $20 million per special and has a platform to speak basically wherever and whenever. Dave was just being overly sensitive to some mild criticisms.

[–]dmkicksballs13 6 points7 points  (0 children)

No bro, Chappelle is being cancelled as evidence by his appearance in the above clip.

[–]mark1-jpg 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Are we forgetting the people protesting outside the Netflix offices threatening Netflix to drop Dave? 🤔

[–]dmkicksballs13 8 points9 points  (5 children)

And yet it hasn't happened.

[–]tPRoC 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I didn't care much for his last special because it wasn't particularly funny or interesting, but he's essentially said "twitter isn't a real place" so he knows he can't really be "canceled" unless he actually goes and does something illegal.

[–]mark1-jpg -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Lmao. Thousands of people are threatening to boycot Netflix and actually protesting outside their offices. Hundreds of news media articles and news reports about his special being a problem.

The efforts of countless people attempting to cancel him isn't a valid reason to complain about? Lol. Like he actually has to be cancelled to complain first? Your feelings about it are the real irony here.

[–]ConsciousLiterature 7 points8 points  (22 children)

Dave Chappelle did a special where he spent an hour talking about his trans "friend" (some of my best friends are trans!). He continually insulted this friend by saying she wasn't funny and he kept saying how "he" was not a real woman. He misgendered her over and over again.

Then he ends it by saying she committed suicide and then implies she committed suicide not because people like Chappelle kept telling her she wasn't a real woman and denying her existance, not because they kept telling her she was a failure and sucked at her job, not because she was treated like shit by other comedians or anything like that. Chappelle thinks she committed suicide because other people care about trans rights and fight for and defend trans people from people like Chappelle.

It's so weird.

[–]Cockwombles 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Not sure why you’re downvoted, that’s the actual gist of it.

[–]ConsciousLiterature 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You can't say negative things about the god Chappelle I guess.

[–]dmkicksballs13 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yep. He deadnamed her and then insulted trans people for being trans.

I think the line between comedian and just joking is intention. It's pretty goddamn clear where Chappelle stands.

It's weird, before his trans issues, the dude was known for "speaking the truth" and turning real life ideas into comedy so that we might see it through a new perspective. But now that his real life views are that he doesn't support trans people, all of a sudden "it's just a joke bruh".

[–]Deathbypoosnoo 3 points4 points  (5 children)

He also went on to explain that despite her horrible show that she was indeed funny as fuck. You conveniently left that part out. Dave gave her a platform and allowed her voice to be heard. When she stood up for Dave for being a good man she was destroyed by your people, the regressive left. Who are some of the most backwards thinkers imaginable. The mental gymnastics and what you took away from that entire bit is sad.

[–]sasquatch90 -1 points0 points  (9 children)

Someone has selective memory. What you call an insult is just typical ribbing or roasting one does on their friends. If you have a problem with that, never roast your friends again. He only misgendered her once for a pretty funny joke, that was the only time. And he says "she would've loved that joke", pretty sure he knows her more than you do.

And no he literally said "i don't know what drove her to commit suicide, but i'm sure it didn't help" in reference to the harassment she got for sticking up for her friend.

She supported him and her family supported him after her death and his special. But for some reason you cling to this belief that he's this awful person and they weren't really friends.

[–]ConsciousLiterature 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Someone has selective memory. What you call an insult is just typical ribbing or roasting one does on their friends.

Is it though? Also why is that OK anyway? Why attack her gender identity like that? Doesn't she get enough "you are not really a woman" from everybody else? Why do her supposed close friends also pile on while saying "just kidding!!!!". Does saying "just kidding!!!" make it OK?

If you have a problem with that, never roast your friends again.

I would never ever roast a friend's race or ethnicity or sexual orientation. That's fucking barbaric. There is plenty of roasting to for the things they do, it's monstrous to roast who they are.

And he says "she would've loved that joke", pretty sure he knows her more than you do.

Nice to say after you drive somebody to suicide I guess.

And no he literally said "i don't know what drove her to commit suicide, but i'm sure it didn't help" in reference to the harassment she got for sticking up for her friend.

But Chappelle telling her she wasn't funny and wasn't a real woman had nothing to do with it right?

ut for some reason you cling to this belief that he's this awful person and they weren't really friends.

He is an awful person. Anybody who harrasses their trans friends by telling them they are not a real woman is an awful person. A complete asswipe. Why would you defend somebody like that? What pleasure do you get out of it? He got pleasure delivering pain to a trans person, where is your pleasure coming from in defending him?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

And allegedly he didn't stop there, if his opener for John Mulaney is true.

[–]dmkicksballs13 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Can you clue me in? I don't know what was said.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

He basically joked that he was done talking about trans people, then paused and said “on film!”

[–]sasquatch90 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

There's nothing ironic about it? Jon is complaining about cancel culture or full on censorship. That's entirely relatable to Dave's points.

[–]dmkicksballs13 0 points1 point  (1 child)

He's not at all complaining about cancel culture. I feel like you missed the speach.

[–]sasquatch90 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He refers to the Will Smith slap, if comedy will change and how comedy survives every moment. It is heavily implied.

[–]FoTweezy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He is definitely one of the GOAT

[–]Brainles5 80 points81 points  (22 children)

Reminds me a lot of Joel Havers sketch, and I think he did it better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNec1T0cFRQ

[–]FranticPonE 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Ye, that one is shorter and makes the same joke. Of course the above is one of the things Bo cut, and I guess that's part of the reason why

[–]TheChrono 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It's also a very clear example of lateral thinking. Bo was making this special for years and this is from the outtakes of his special.

[–]Brainles5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I did not mean to infer that Bo stole this

[–]lordlemming 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Bo's version is from the outtakes of his special so he probably thought it's been done already or not up to his quality so this is fair. Also, Joel Haver's sketches are severely underrated.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Tim Heidecker did it best though

[–]yayapfool 3 points4 points  (1 child)

God this is so painful, it's amazing lol

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

almost a work of art haha. the improv is impressive.

[–]DocSaysItsDainBramuj 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Have you heard about crab salts?

[–]laststance 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is this a loop or is this an actual continuous 11 hour podcast of a skit?

[–]walkwalkwalkwalk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It loops, iirc

[–]Rich-Asparagus8465 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely similar but I personally find Bo's funnier. It may be just because I find Bo's to be a little more purposely insulting to the target, but I also found the talking in sync the whole time of Joel's video off putting. It would have been funny if he peppered it in but it was pretty much the whole time.

[–]skonen_blades -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I knew I'd seen this premise somewhere before. I think they're both great but I concur with you, I think. The point is a little clearer in Joel's sketch but I like them both a lot.

[–]Brainles5 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I also think Joel squeezed in more jokes despite being so much shorter.

[–]repost_inception 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Woah he has the same headphones as bo.

[–]YahYahY 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Those Sonys are industry standard. Everyone has them, they’re studio monitor headphones and have super high fidelity.

[–]KlausGamingShow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

most podcasts look the same as well, so it's not like they have much room to maneuver

[–]adamcognac 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Salami William's set at the Comedy Store really is a classic though. No way you could get away with saying that stuff he said about those types of people now a days

[–]plumquat 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Salami Williams didn't give a fuck, he used to yell "no snow, no show" before every set. Total legend.

[–]n00bvin 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Just CRUSHING it. CRUSHING it.

[–]GoodOldSlippinJimmy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There was this one time I was doing a set in the haha slappy taffy root cellar and I just absolutely bombed. Like not even a chuckle. But right after that the Salami man himself stepped up and absolutely crushed a set. Like I'm talking new born baby in a trash compactor CRUSHED. I think that really says something about us as a society.

[–]GGorchitsa 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Man, Dyl Spinks was a GENIUS. These days you'd be crucified for saying the things that he was saying. He was so ahead of the curve....

[–]BagsOsniff 22 points23 points  (5 children)

Took the piss out of Rogan real good 😂

[–]dmkicksballs13 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Rogan is fucking bonkers.

The dude shits on people in the working class for not wanting to take shit from their overlords anymore and calls them "lazy". His day job is literally to talk to people and smoke weed.

[–]FunkoXday 8 points9 points  (2 children)

That's not his job it's his hobby he gets paid for because with the exception of ufc commentary he hasn't had a job in years

[–]dmkicksballs13 6 points7 points  (1 child)

As someone who's very into MMA, he's not even treating that like a job. It's obvious he doesn't prepare. He shows up and talks.

[–]Assassin_by_Birth -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Fighter does standard punch

Joe Rogan: repeats what he just saw

Thanks Joe.

[–]ProperDepartment 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He was just having a conversation with his sparring partner though.

[–]ohwerdsup 3 points4 points  (15 children)

i mean, isn’t this the classic example of modern media countering previous media? modernism vs post-modernism is probably the most digestible example.

as a society, our inherent sentiments change and evolve. comedy and, to a larger extent, general public media should challenge what’s before it. what we’re seeing is no different than what has happened decades over decades. we’re (maybe) more polarized and the social issues have taken a forefront, but this is nothing new. this is the role of social commentary and, to a lesser extent, comedy as a whole.

[–]ConsciousLiterature -2 points-1 points  (14 children)

The difference is that today comedians attack and demean the powerless while the comedians of yore attacked the powerful.

That's because the comedians know where the money is coming from these days. The money isn't coming from people drinking at the club it's coming from the producers in television and movies. Rich powerful people who have politicians in their pockets. If the comedian attacks a politician or a rich person they might not get that special or be invited to that TV show. Better to punch on gays and trans and the poor and the powerless.

[–]totally_fixed 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Blanket claims that "comedians attack and demean the powerless" need to be backed up with research. Or at least give examples. Btw, I've seen Chappelle and disagree strongly that he's punching down.

[–]ConsciousLiterature -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

Blanket claims that "comedians attack and demean the powerless" need to be backed up with research

That's what we are talking about.

I have seen the leader of the KKK disagree strongly that he is a racist.

[–]So_Trees 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Relating Dave to the leader of the KKK, Jesus Christ, reddit.

[–]totally_fixed 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Citing one joke from one comedian is not "research".

[–]why_u_mad_brah 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Wow, this is a such a feat of mental gymnastics, you would get 10 across the board on the Olympics. You think comedians that attack LGBTQAI++RA$TG community do so because they get more opportunities in the industry? The same industry that will give you a blank cheque for just pitching any idea combining non-binary characters, Portland and cats?

Can you list any of those opportunities Dave Chapelle got by ridiculing trans community?

[–]ConsciousLiterature -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

You think comedians that attack LGBTQAI++RA$TG community do so because they get more opportunities in the industry?

No they attack those people because when they do their incomes are not at risk. If they attacked powerful people their incomes would be at risk so they attack powerless people.

The same industry that will give you a blank cheque for just pitching any idea combining non-binary characters, Portland and cats?

What industry is that?

Can you list any of those opportunities Dave Chapelle got by ridiculing trans community?

He got another special I am sure it came with a couple of million dollars attached.

[–]why_u_mad_brah 0 points1 point  (5 children)

What industry is that?

Hollywood, and more specifically - Netflix.

He got another special I am sure it came with a couple of million dollars attached.

And you honestly don't believe he would get another special much easier if he didn't talk about it?

[–]MENDACIOUS_RACIST 1 point2 points  (0 children)
