Dave Chappelle: My son said “you’re good dad, but Kevin Hart is better” now I can’t stand Kevin Hart (wicked smile). Lol!
Here’s a review of his later NYC shows with musical guests - right on point. Dave left the biz because the biz and audience were starting to control him by projecting what they thought his comedy was, on him. Laughing at him vs with him. Wanting to contrive his comedy and retro fit it into what the “industry” thought was funny - like dressing in drag (a la Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy). After a 10 year sabbatical he came back to his sweet spot - NYC - and we showed him agape love. And he gave it back with his unapologetically clever and sardonic self. Cool.
