Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2019)

Today was my first time watching one of Dave Chappelle's comedy specials. From the style of the special, I got the feeling he was probably doing something different with it. In particular, he seemed to be using it as a platform to get various opinions across to the audience and eventual viewers. Personally, I don't mind this style, because sometimes comedy is purely for entertainment and sometimes comedy can be used as a powerful tool to make a point. Compared to other comedy specials I've seen, this one definitely hits or exceeds the average and so I'd recommend it to viewers who enjoy comedy specials - particularly those that address politically correct topics (e.g., Bill Burr's specials).

Dave Chappelle.

Netflix determined the special for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the special a thumbs up.

Hahaha. No restroom for the T.
Hahahaha. Haha. Funny but logically true. "But this is how I feel inside."

Hmm. He mentioned skipping school and doing drugs. I wonder if all the rules on that type of stuff have made it harder to deal with school.
Haha. "That won't kill a man."
He ties up several jokes at the end.

Many photos are shown. Some with just Chappelle but many are Chappelle with other celebrities.
