Dave Chappelle - Sticks and Stones

"Sticks and Stones" is one of the most genius thought provoking experiences in the comedy world at the moment.

There’s no need to repeat that Dave Chappelle is one of the best comedians alive.

I wont go deep on any details, just go watch it.

#1. The name of the special

“Sticks and Stones” is an English-language children’s rhyme. The rhyme persuades the child victim of name-calling to ignore the taunt, to refrain from physical retaliation, and to remain calm and good-living. The full rhyme is usually a variant of:

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words will never harm me.

 

#2. The Bourdain beginning

“Just like everybody else.” 

-Anthony Bourdain

 

#3. The audience confronting

The joke is on YOU. 

#4. The prison jumpsuit

He’s so ready to be judged, he’s already dressed for prison.

#5. The uncensored topics

Comedy censorship, Michael Jackson, school shootings, the opioid vs crack crisis, #MeToo and the women’s movement are topics on the special’s menu.
 

#6. The bonus Epilogue 

Chappelle brilliantly answers the audience’s questions.
