Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2019)

CONTENT – 1
EXECUTION – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 3/3

 

PROS –
1) Dave Chappelle in all its glory.
2) Louis C.K. did an SNL monologue on child molester and pedophiles. That bit pushed the envelope by making jokes out of this extremely inappropriate topic. Dave Chappelle clearly tore the envelope this time.
3) How Twitter screenshots from yesteryears are destroying careers. How T is different from L, G, & B. How anyone with a dick should shut up on abortion laws. How gun laws can be amended only if black people start hoarding guns.

 

CONS –
N/A

 
QUOTE –
Seriously, I wanna know. Like, wh-why is it… why is it that… that I can say the word “nigger” with impunity……but I can’t say the word “faggot”?”And she said, “Because, David, you are not gay.” I said, “Well, Renée…I’m not a nigger either.”

Smart Brother: I performed a full range spectral analysis on Miss White She-Devil’s brain waves.Then, I unlocked her subconscious using a special form of hypnosis.Then, I gently brushed her hair.Then, I reached deep within her tight little pockets and I found a list of The Man’s targets.

QUOTE –
The Godfather is the I Ching. The Godfather is the sum of all wisdom. The Godfather is the answer to any question. What should I pack for my summer vacation? ‘Leave the gun, take the cannoli.’ What day of the week is it? ‘Maunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday.’ And the answer to your question is ‘Go to the mattresses.’ You’re at war. ‘It’s not personal, it’s business. It’s not personal it’s business.’ Recite that to yourself every time you feel you’re losing your nerve. I know you worry about being brave, this is your chance. Fight. Fight to the death.
