Myotic Tesseract : Goddamnit i thought this was gonna be a video about Chappelle actually dodging literal laser beams and doing acrobatics and shit

ToonrificTariq : Making the background music “Killing Me Softly” is such a genius, subtle touch.

a crusty krab : Of course Amy Shumer steals jokes from a dead legend. Wp Amy

Ron McDon : "I was boo'd, but I did not leave" LOOOOOOOOOOL

Dillon The Hacker : Louis CK was pretty right about that one year left thing.

Ψ : How old is 15 really!?

UserFT : The difference with Dave Chapelle is that he is very, very smart. Instead of using his talents to pursue a college degree like his parents did, he channelled everything into his comedy. His comedy is golden and original because of the decisions he made. What kind of man can quit a successful show/comedy for almost a decade, go to Africa, then come back into it and become a millionaire AGAIN?! Dave Chapelle.

NolanEP84 : I think Dave might be the top comic of all-time. He's a master of the craft. The way he tells his stories, creating the tension for the payoff is subtle. He's not a loud comic like Kat Williams or Kevin Hart, meaning he doesn't rely on "being big" on stage, he relies on his ability to tell stories. He's a cerebral comic and that's why he is consistently funny. Personally, I don't think Kevin Hart is that funny. He's just obnoxious. He plays the same character in every movie he's in too, just like Will Farrell. It's boring.

payaso uno : You mean he dodges laser beams by STARING RIGHT AT THE LASER BEAM??? Doesn't look much like dodging to me. More like breaks down the laser light and analyzing each light particle and then rebuilds it into ball of light and now everybody appreciates it more.

Aidan S : Oh Amy Schumer. How you love to steal jokes.

Fredrick Smith-something. : Or maybe, just maybe he was actually HONEST and sincere despite what others may think of him.

RedShiftRider : The problem with society these days is the fact that a video like this has to be made in the first place. Dave Chappelle is the embodiment of how everyone should be. We're all here together, none of us are getting out alive. Yeah, of course there's hate but any sane person would agree that needs to end. So it should go without saying. We should all just be able to laugh at ourselves. Just like Dave Chappelle.

Jędrzej Spychał : I've seen all Dave's Netflix specials about 4 or 5 times and it's still funny.

Sushii : is Dave Chappelle just, genuine?

Rafael Duran : To be honest, and Im latino so I really dont have a dog in this fight, if Bill Burr was black he could do what Dave does. Hes white so he has to jump off at the last posible second and land safely while the joke burns into flames, he cant stay because he risk being yet another race war victim, that cop out or "maybe Im just an idiot" thing he does is like a lawyer using the word allegedly.

René Wuttke : Dave Chapelle is so good that two white European dudes can bond over Chappelles Show.

The_Wrath_of_Neeson : Amy Schumer hits every laser.

78755477 78755477 : Please tell me why people find Kevin Hart funny?

Now You See It : Some thoughts that didn’t make it into the video because of runtime: 1. I say Chappelle is the only “living comedian” that does this stuff simply because Richard Pryor was dodging laser beams 40 years earlier. Listen to Pryor’s bit on his drug addiction, or watch his character comedy. You’ll see what I’m talking about. 2. I should reiterate that this doesn’t mean you have to like Chappelle. I must admit I am obsessed and fascinated with how unique his way of joking is, but I still find some of his humor out of touch. I didn’t like, for example, how he implied the Louis C.K. victims didn’t have strong enough dreams because they blame Louis for not succeeding. That’s not the point. 3. Louis C.K. is in this video because I can’t ignore the contributions to comedy he has made over the last 10 years. I’m not saying you have to like him. I’m not even saying his jokes are funny or not. What I am saying is his Everyman style was the quintessential counterpoint to Chappelle’s laser beam style. 4. The background song is from Chappelle's Equanimity special, Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flack:

Dexter Christian : Richard Pryor was great at dodging the so-called laser beam. He joked on racial, social, personal, political issues with ease.

Akiraspin : Dave Chappelle is one of the only comedians to truly make any type of person laugh. I've seen white, black, religious, atheist and every ideology and background in-between laugh with Chappelle. And he doesn't discriminate. What a legend. Truly this generations Charlie Chaplin. He inspires me.

Sufian Abuahmad : Bill and Dave are really the only ones I like to watch now

Cory Mck : You never explained what a laser beam is exactly.

Gus Johnson : Excellent video. Long live Dave.

Borginator : So different rewatching Chappelle Show and then seeing Dave swoll AF.

t100base : patrice oneal was the best at it

President Santana : Dave Chapelle, Patrice O Neal and Louis CK are the funniest comedians of this generation.... RIP TO PATRICE

Xfalcon Playz : I thought there were actual laser beams and this was a skit

Coy : I honestly thought this was going to be 14 minutes of chappelle stand up with special effect laser beams blasting around him.

Jaisean Forever : “The article says I was boo’d off stage, which is also incorrect. I was boo’d but I did not leave” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

maximus1318able : Although I agree, but Patrice Oneal had none of these problems. He was giving you Patrice if you liked it or not. My all-time favorite comedian. Man I miss him

R JP : ricky gervais is similar too. ricky never dismisses or apologises for his jokes, rather he digs down deeper to really drive that message home. like in his latest stand up special, he revisits the caitlyn jenner joke he did in golden globes and the controversy it faced, and pretty much emphasised more on the topic coz he's not backing down.

Aishah Mayes : I’d say Chappell’s and CK are the greatest comics alive. Neither one of there styles can be emulated. I’d agree Chappelle is more of a chameleon though. You can’t stay mad at the dude

Puddingfuzz : But what does Ja Rule think about this?

KALI UCHIHA : if you think Dave Chappelles comedy in terms of race was ever're wrong?????

Daniel Villalobos : I always thought Chapelle's superpower as a comedian was his intelligence coupled with his taste for humor and the absurd. He's the son of college professors, not unlike myself—but he casually talks "hood" and he doesn't come across as insincere for it. He's also got a great sense of things about him that make him funny, like his voice and appearance. The greatest comics work with their own mannerisms to great effect. And his humor can range from the very subtle to the extremely silly and absurd, but always with wit and originality.

AudioImpression : Dave Chappelle is the greatest comedian to have ever existed in the English language. Jerry Seinfeld is not a good comedian, his comedy is so boring, generic, painfully obvious that is simply unfunny. Dave Chappelle is a comedic genius, his comedy is actually enjoyable not only at face value but on a deeper intellectual level and many of his jokes have deep philosophical meanings.

sparky6899 : Chappelle might be the best comedian since Pryor.

Jordan Hedington : I’m gonna say chappele most likely learned his comic self reflection from Richard Pryor in a way. I mean, after all that freebasing, lighting himself on fire shit, he went on stage and used it as material. Remember the burning match, ‘Richard Pryor running down the road’ joke? I don’t know, it’s probably not the same

Active Lemon : Dave Chappelle tells very smart jokes and is most of all authentic. I believe he is the same person on and off stage. A lot of comedians switch personalities as soon as they hit the stage, i.e. they overdo it, which i personally don't like very much.

T. S : Seems like you are forgetting about Ricky Gervais.

꧁꧂Ꮆ Ꮛ Ꮼ Ꮧ Ꮆ Ꮛ꧁꧂ : BLAH BLAH BLAH and no freaking lasers !!

MUST SEE FILMS : This was awesome, Dave is the man, love is new Netflix special.

M.C. Ballyhoo : The root of all comedy is that which doesn't make sense. That which throws off the audience. That which is unexpected is in fact what creates the art of humor.

Julio Gonzalez : Before i watched this i didn't know you but now i f*cking love you cause now i use this video to fight arguments on how Dave Chappelle is the best srand up comedian. So thank you

Cory Mck : Theres a lot of Louis C.K. for a video that was released after he was proven to sexually harrass women.

John Marksman : I think Paul Mooney was the best ever

acquired immunity : Pretty much every single joke told by Amy Schumer is stolen. And it’s sad because somehow she takes a great joke and pretty much destroys it

Tony Smith : It isn't dangerous. He is really smart, and honest, and charming, and everyone relates to him easily. He is much better them most of the comedians maybe only Eddie Murphy or George Carlin are as good and as smart. I helps having a Mom that is a doctor. He has a really smart family. He is also really modest and will tell you how modest he is. RIP George Carlin , we will always miss him. Chappelle is now the smartest comic alive !

Manchester Is Blue : chappelle is the king
