I said a while back that Rotten Tomatoes is just not to be trusted to give honest reviews. They sold out and this show didn't have a one critic give Chappelle a good review. Then the ordinary viewers started weighing in and they were about 99% positive.
Money buys a good review or political pressure and cowardice does.

The left are simply ticked because Chappelle's observational comedy is [gasp!] aiming at the left's sacred cows. So now The Mob has started a Twitter campaign ordering audience members not to laugh at his jokes.

Yes, America, it didn't take long, either, for comedy critics to go from calling Chappelle "electrifying" and "brilliant" to, now, "disconcerting.

Get over it. Liberals have no monopoly on determining what's funny. And chuck the pedophilia gar-baghe.

Chris Rock once touched on charities in one of his routines, and noted that Jerry's Kids are still gimpin' around. And the crowd's uproarious laughter did NOT mean that they found childhood illnesses amusing. It's called obervational comedy for a reason.

Lay a guilt trip on someone else.
Who is ď the leftĒ, never heard of this until it was brought up here.

Never heard of her, just watched it on Youtube. While she isn't the best comedian , I thought she is kind of funny, no offense taken here. I'll try and find more of her work.

The Anderson Cooper, Harvey Weinstein and Metoo jokes were funny.

LOL. I didnít know the name either when I read it. I guess her performance didnít do too much for her career.

At least Chappelle is someone who is relevant.

And anyone that can walk away from $50 million has a lot more integrity than 75% of the people in this country. Hell, I'd have a hard time not taking it.

That's surprising because she was excoriated for her jokes about Sarah Sanders. There were threads about it on this board. People insisted she was making fun of Sarah's appearance. All the conservative pundits were demanding she apologize.

The correspondents dinner doesn't even allow comedians to host anymore because of Michelle Wolf's monologue.

You really missed that news cycle.

This was good comedy, the best I’ve heard in a while. Somebody that doesn’t obsess on Trump 24/7 and calls it how he sees it. Take notes Colbert/Meyers/Kimmel, the lamest most unoriginal group of talk show hosts I’ve ever heard, all saying the same things every night. People are exhausted of it.

Wrong. Conservatives whined and cried about it for a full year; demanded that Michelle Wolf be fired, demoted, whatever.

We know who the real snowflakes are. It's Trumpies.

It was funny as hell. I watched a couple of times already. It was VERY UN-PC. One of the bits about an Asian person being born into a black body. Good lordy, LOL, I cant believe he had the stones to say some of the stuff he said.

He's got that F U money and Netflix let him do whatever, apparently.

I highly recommend watching it, but be warned, the woke crowd and the SJW's WILL be triggered.
