At the beginning of the show, Dave says it is the last set he will do in a long time. Given the quality of this last entry, I'm not sad about that.

To start with, the show is so full of pregnant pauses that I had to watch it at 130% velocity just to stay awake. Second, the first part of the show is filthy — there's just no need to be that vulgar. Last, it turns out that the main point of the set is for Dave to justify himself to some people he's offended. I can understand the desire to explain oneself, but there are other venues for that — saying what a good guy you actually are is just not good comedy.

My advice: skip this one and watch Killing Them Softly (Dave's set from the year 2000) instead. That's what I plan to do tomorrow in order to erase this insipid blob.

Subject: Good show, just a bit political

Chappelle still has it. There is enough funny here to make it worthwhile as comedy alone, stripped of any message or activist themes. He's no Eddie Murphy in his prime, but its still pretty good by current standards. He does spend a bit of time on the TRA phenomenon, and he gives them exactly the same treatment he gives everyone else. You may find this detracts from the overall special, I did not.
