If, say, you didn't feel your expectations met watching him on Deep in the Heart of Texas, there's The Age of Spin right after it to enjoy.

If Chappelle really wants to be a feminist he should read some bell hooks, and Angela Davis, or the book Women of Color and Feminism by Dr. Maythee Rojas. It might help him understand that rape is a sensitive subject for all women.

The specials work in an episodic fashion; watching them together gives a deeper experience.

What's most striking about his performances isn't how shocking they are, but how they reveal the extent to which the rest of the comedy world has caught up to Chappelle's brand of provocation.

Chappelle embarks on one of the most intellectually and narratively impressive moments of his career.
