I have always loved Dave Chappelle. I will never forget when I saw the HBO special Killin’ Them Softly and how hard I laughed. And how all my friends (girls) thought I was nuts and gave me the weird look.
I get that look a lot. :)
Recently, I saw an article about Mr. Chappelle in my Rolling Stone magazine and I immediately searched YouTube for his stand-up specials. It looks like he is going back to stand-up and personally, I think that is when he is at his best. Creating and controlling his own material and having total artistic freedom.
For a glimpse of his awesomeness, I included the video. It is 58 minutes of pure truthful silliness from one of my favorite men.
However, for those that don’t have an hour to kill, let me tell you the parts I love.
On Monica Lewinsky: “Don’t go judging her. That girl was young and she made a mistake that young girls make. She wanted to fuck a powerful man, period, that is as far as she thought it through. She wasn’t thinking about how powerful the president was. She had no wisdom – an older woman would have helped everybody. An older woman would have sucked us into utopia.“
On Men and Women: ”The only thing in our society that bothers me the most is the way that men and women don’t get along no more. That’s really what’s bugging me about it, men and women, just don’t get along. Like I hear women say this all the time, ‘chivalry is dead’, don’t you all feel that way? Like men aren’t gentlemen anymore? That’s right, chivalry is dead and women killed it.”
“A woman’s test in life is material. A man’s test in life is a woman.”
“Women love comfortable surroundings, so men get comfortable surroundings. Let me tell you something, if a man could fuck a woman in cardboard box, he wouldn’t buy a house.”
Advice: “Women get too much advice about men, from other women. And they don’t know what they fuck they are talking about. And it’s true …. I see this shit in the magazines, I don’t read them but I’ve seen the cover ’100 Ways To Please Your Man’ by some lady. Get out of here, I mean come on, aint no 100 ways, that list is 4 things long. Just suck his dick, play with his balls and fix him a sandwich and don’t talk so much!”
The Value of a Woman: ”If pussy was a stock, it would be plummeting right now because you flooded the market with it. Your giving it away too easy!”
Nobody makes me laugh like when Dave Chappelle jokes about the truth. He (and many other men known and not known) inspire me in so many ways …..
