Absolutely hilarious
30 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Dave Chappelle's show on Comedy Central might just be one of the best variety comedies ever. Dave Chappelle has a gift of making people laugh and his voice doesn't help anything at all as he has a funny voice too. He delivers in his mockery of R. Kelly, "The Black white supremacist" and Fisticuffs w/ Funkmaster Flex and Big Tigger. I can't wait for the second season to begin, it's hard to predict what he has in store for us fans
