That much is obvious, early in the special, where he talks about an idea for a film centered on an ancient civilization that discovered space travel, left the planet and then came back, determined to claim the Earth for their own. His punchline is the title for the film: Space Jews.

Even the adoring audience in Detroit took a breath on that one. “It’s gonna get worse than that,” Chappelle retorts, laughing. But I’m not sure it did. Because that was pretty awful.

For Dave Chappelle, punchlines are dares. His new special, ‘The Closer,’ goes too far

The author pretty much has a conniption explaining the comedy special and the jokes that pushed past the limits according to him and even accusing Chapelle of antisemitism.  I would not accuse him of being anti-Jew but of stealing material from Mel Brooks.

I am not a fan of Chapelle, but I have to respect the guy who simply does not give a damn about “Wokenism” and the Cancel Culture.

    I’m with you; I don’t think he’s all that funny, but you gotta give props to the guy for double dog daring them to try to “cancel” him.

  2. Dear Mr. Deggins:

    Oh… your are offended. Why in the world do you think I would give a damn about your emotional state?

    Seriously. sWho the F cares? I don’t. No one outside of your immediate family and friends do not care.

    Your offense did not change my net worth, my pets still love me, and I am still fat. The world is going on just fine with, or without your emotional rant.

    Here’s a pro tip. No one cares about your emotional state. Stop trying to use it as a weapon against everything you do not like.

    In fact, just grow up.
    Sincerly
    The rest of the universe.

    1. CBMTTek – This… I got to use a similar statement the other day (that I may very well have stolen…er…borrowed) from these very pages. “Darlin’, I don’t know you . I care more about what I’m having for lunch today than I do about your feelings.”

  3. If he’s stealing from Mel Brooks then the success of the gag is measured by the quantity of outrage. Sounds like he was very successful.
