Quote from: madhair60 on October 06, 2021, 11:55:33 PMI like Dave Chappelle. I've enjoyed his previous sets, even when they were deeply problematic at times. He found ways to make it funny. I didn't find a lot to enjoy in this one at all.The trans material isn't even remotely funny, or even recognisable as comedy in the way it's presented. This isn't me being a prude or whatever; he's done trans material before that registered as humorous, but this? It turned into a polemic; essentially "stop finding rich people accountable for their bigotry". Nah, Dave, mate.

Quote from: Fry on October 07, 2021, 02:32:45 AMThen with 0 sense of irony makes a few massive generalisations about the LGBTQ community. Their whiteness (as if there are only white lgbtq people), their privilege and how the bad reaction of some means their movement is over. I cant believe he missed the obvious connections within his own act like that. Shows a lack of insight id never seen from Chappelle before.
Quote from: H-O-W-L on October 07, 2021, 02:49:58 AMand he speaks as if all LGBTQ+ people are like, the embodiment of the right wing stereotype of all being sheltered, side-shaved middle-class tech workers in San Francisco who're just "complaining about nothing". It's absolutely baffling. Complete lack of self-awareness, or world awareness. I guess getting old and rich ruins them all.
Quote from: up_the_hampipe on October 07, 2021, 12:14:08 AMThe story about Daphne Dorman feels pretty exploitative.
Quote from: chveik on October 07, 2021, 02:21:28 AMthe kind of fearlessness exhibited by people like ricky gervais. there's nothing brave about a rich man having outdated, shitty opinions while slowly losing the rest of wit he used to have
Quote from: madhair60 on October 07, 2021, 09:59:53 AMthis idea that it's somehow fearless for a multi millionaire superstar comedian to punch down at vulnerable minorities will never not confuse me
