Dave Chappelle - Killing Them Softly
Taking you all way back to 2000 for this one here. This is, of course, one of my all time modern favorites in comedy. Most often I find myself re-listening to older comedy albums and bemoaning the present state of this once-great art form. The emergence of Chappelle and Chris Rock around the same time gave DaddyRich faith that the funny would be carried on well into the next millennium. As usual, Dave's take on race relations are pretty funny and although I have never been comedy's typical-lame-white-guy kind of joke lover, he does it without making it seem less mean-spririted than most. It also helps that his best friend and co-writer is a white guy, I suppose. I have searched and can find no low points on this one, folks. Play and enjoy at your Christmas celebration. I know I will try but will most likely be voted down by the wife. Do it for DaddyRich - have fun.
