Need help understanding the protests going on in the USA?
Dave Chappelle, in an incredible twist of fate doesn’t even have to tell jokes. He as become one of the most powerful voices in America, by just voicing his opinion in a funny but mostly serious and undeniably political way.
This is not your average comedy set (not only because of the unusual setting) and Chappelle starts off by acknowledging it as he asks the audience “Is this weird?”
The jokes are scarce and he mostly focus instead, on listing other accounts of police brutality (and police culture, that prevents/doesn’t reward a officer from telling on another officer for their wrongdoing) towards black man and women.
Chappelle storytelling abilities allow him to wrap all this behind his personal experience, in what is a very compelling performance.
