“I know real niggas happen to love it.”– Sean Carter (Billionaire)
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Unless you’re a feeble-minded, media critic who can’t distinguish the difference between humor & hate speech, or appreciate the comedic genius that is Dave Chappelle.
I couldn’t think of a more fitting childhood chant to encapsulate one of the most controversial, and thought provoking comedy specials of all time.
It’s the job of comedians to make light of an otherwise dark situation, by exercising people’s sense of humor to challenge their perception about life’s most taboo topics.
You know why people say, ‘Laughter is the best medicine’? Because it helps with the healing process. Comedy allows people to poke fun at life’s misfortunes.
I’m a connoisseur of stand-up comedy, and in his 7th special, Chappelle has solidified his status as the greatest comedian of all time.
But don’t take my word for it. Go watch it for yourself.
‘Sticks & Stones’ is 65 minutes of controversial comedy gold. This is the comedy special America didn’t know it needed.
