At least IMO. They are simply not that laugh out loud funny for most of the shows. People calling him the GOAT has me exremely confused? Most of these people have to be sheep who really don't follow comedy.

His funniest work for me is the Chapelle show, I enjoyed it just as much as anyone. Best skit show of all-time. His movies were never widely succesful. His standup is just ok. Also the so called outrage is overstated as well as the outrage over the outrage.

Taking his total body of work into account, I'm not even sure he is top 5 comedian.

Chris Tucker
Martin Lawrence
Redd Foxx
d*ck Gregory
Richard Pryor
Eddie Murphy
Bernie Mac
Robin Harris
Patrice ONeal


Just had to get that thought out.

There are different types of comedians.

I consider George Carlin a top 5 comedian.

For others, he might not be top 20.

Just depends on what type of comedy you like.

I do think we need the type of comedian that speaks on the social issues going on in this world.

Katt Williams >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dave Chappelle and it's not even close

Katt has quotables for days whereas Dave just goes on these long, meandering rants that any BX member could come up with.

And I love Dave

Dave is for the emotionally and mentally mature. People who have real life experience and a decent understanding of the reality of life will gravitate towards his comedy. Dumb fxcks who spend their life on social media won't get it because they have no clue what real life is.

Sheep as in calling him the stand-up GOAT. They're to many great stand up comedians. GOAT comedian sketch show GOAT yes.

Stand up is only one part of comedy. Kevin Hart and Chris Rock has said Eddie Murphy is the funniest person they ever been around by far.

Few people have said his sh*t is like a political sermon obsessed with Tranny's

Seems like Rogan and his ilk have rubbed off on him - in a bad way

If you sit around talking about Tranny's and politics all day it's obviously going to reflect in your material

Comedy is not suppose to be a Ted talk

Is cool you prefer other comedians over him and that’s where you should have stopped. To say he’s overrated or can’t understand why people have him in their top 5 is laughable.

I do feel Chapelle stands up the past 5 or so years are definitely not that of a typical comedian.

It's comedy mixed with a Ted talk to be honest and it's dope how it puts it all together. There are plenty of funny parts but I'm not like... on the floor crying, stomach hurt, laughing through the whole thing. At least not for me, I enjoy the message.

For instance, Katts earlier stand ups have me in fkin tears, straight up hilarious sh*t. But two very different type of comedians.

You have different genres within the comedian landscape.

You like what you like.

Yet Eddie hasn't been funny to an audience in 20 years and that's not even debatable. It's funny you mentioned Pryor because much of his material was social commentary just like Chappelle. Without Pryor we don't get Chappelle and without Chappelle stand-up comedy would die the same death as modern hip-hop.

Far too often I'm noticing social media infiltrating the minds of the youths and cancel culture, extremism,and contrarianism is more prevalent in and surrounding the Black community. At first I thought it was just a bunch of cooonery but I've come to realize it's an epidemic of Black people allowing social media and apps to raise their kids. There's an abundance of mental and social regression.

Most likely it’s just over your head so your missing a lot of angles…

Chappelle got range and levels to his sh*t; intellectual comedy at its finest

First, comedy is very subjective…

Also if what Dave is speaking about isn’t what you’re interested in hearing, you’re going to be uninterested and it won’t be funny.

If someone who never saw Dave perform and wasn’t familiar with him watched his standup, they probably wouldn’t feel he’s the GOAT and wouldn’t laughing out loud.

It’s who he is, what he’s speaking about and how he’s speaking about it that makes him funny and for many to call him the GOAT.
