Dave Chappelle’s Controversial Comeback!

By T.Simpson

Legend and Comedian Dave Chappelle has released his new Netflix comedy special interestingly called “Sticks & Stones”. I watched it and decided to do a count down until the uproar…Yes, I knew it was going to ruffle a few feathers.

“Sticks & Stones isn’t controversial. It’s not thought-provoking. It’s lazy and unimaginative. I’m not outraged, or shocked, or triggered. I’m bored.” – Independent (New York)

Now everyone is entitled to their own opinion but Dave’s comedy special was far from being unimaginative and boring.

Dave has a unique way of giving us all bitter pills of truth to swallow. Now some may not agree with his delivery but once we get past our initial emotions we can see the was several controversial truth bombs strewn throughout his performance.

Overall I laughed until my stomach hurt and had tears in my eyes…I’m sorry but I’ve always loved Dave’s comedy style. If you don’t like explicit language, harsh truths and in general you cannot see the joke…in his jokes then he is not for you.

I believe Stick & Stones touched on a lot of important topics. I commend Dave for speaking up about the abortion issue, currently happening across the USA. In regards to the topic Dave said:


“I don’t care what your religious beliefs are or anything. If you have a d-ck, you need to shut the f-ck up on this one. Seriously! This is theirs; the right to choose is their unequivocal right. Not only do I believe they have the right to choose, I believe that they shouldn’t have to consult anybody, except for a physician, about how they exercise that right.

Gentlemen, that is fair. And ladies, to be fair to us, I also believe that if you decide to have the baby, a man should not have to pay. That’s fair. If you can kill this motherf-cker, I can at least abandon him. It’s my money, my choice. And if I’m wrong, then perhaps we’re wrong. So figure that sh-t out for yourselves.”

Dave gave his honest thoughts to both sexes essentially saying “My Body, My Choice,” — a longtime slogan of pro-abortion women, and “Your Baby, Your Problem.” in defense of men, put together into one simple joke. Dave shared he believes there will be terrible aftermath for us a culture. He said we degrade sex and relationships to the point where getting pregnant and babies are essentially an afterthought that can be disregarded at any time rather than a special gift of life that must be cherished.

Now we all know what is right and what is wrong, but now and then some people still need to be reminded of their obligations and responsibilities when two consenting adults engage in a long term relationship or a casual fling. Both males and female have an important role to play. Both parties must be responsible.

Dave shares his opinion on what some call the “Snowflake Generation” and complains about the social justice warrior agenda. The Comedian jokes about Michael Jackson’s charges and rips into shamed singer R. Kelly for his alleged incriminating sex tape which is now the main piece of evidence against him in federal court. He also speaks of Louis C.K.’s disgraceful habit of masturbating in front of female colleagues.

Now many people are furious, hurt and disgusted by Dave’s show. He certainly gave the far left a lot to hit out against as his jokes were created to be offensive and provoke critical thinking all while making us (well some of us) laugh. Good comedy challenges perceptions and provokes deeper thinking. Now I must say a lot of his jokes were very vulgar but many of his jokes were also very funny.

Dave Chappelle is one of the best comedians in the world and has been a top tier performer for around 2 decades. From starring in blockbuster films, creating ‘The Chappelle Show’ which was a massive international success plus an impeccable career in stand-up comedy, I don’t think there is any way he can top what he has already accomplished.

It’s safe to say Dave Chappelle is just like Marmite…You either love him or hate him. Watch “Sticks & Stones on Netflix!
