All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

Are these specials funny? Sure. Sometimes. Are they insightful? Sure. Sometimes. Did I enjoy watching them? No, I did not. And Dave Chappelle has made it very clear that not enjoying any portion of his work makes me a humorless wimp.

He takes us to the depths of absurdity, walks hand in hand with his offensive nature, and speaks on the knowledge and wisdom we can see in it.

They're good. Of course they're good. Despite all the public discourse, I don't think Chappelle's talent was ever in question. We know the dude can put together a solid special, and these two might be his best yet.

"Comedy is saying mean things," is how Chappelle kicked off his latest special. It's a bummer that Chappelle now seems to think it ends there.

If Equanimity is his definitive statement on 2017, his year-in-review comedy party, then Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation is the afterparty. The postscript. Like any great afterparty, it's an intimate affair.

Does all this sound awfully heavy for a couple of comedy specials? You bet, and it just makes things more interesting. Chappelle is also just flat-out funny.
