Product Description

Chappelle's Show - Season 1 Uncensored

Amazon.ca

The 2003 debut of Chappelle's Show on Comedy Central marked a high point for the cable channel, and now the entire, wildly creative first season can be seen, with hundreds of bleeps removed. That's not to say Chappelle's Show is perfect entertainment: there are too many moments among the 12 episodes here that descend into pointless scatology and booty fever. But for the most part, Chappelle, a talented comic slowly growing into greatness, is trying to push the sketch-humor envelope and succeeds at surprising us with original concepts and merciless execution.

The merely clever material includes "National Geography's Third World Girls Gone Wild," basically an update on those topless-native-women gags of yore, and Chappelle's "Educated Guess Line," in which the sage comic eschews psychic powers to logically deduce racial insights from his callers' questions. Far more wicked is an in-your-face satire on such autobiographical film fare as Antwone Fisher and 8 Mile, in which Chappelle plays himself ascending from street hustler to rapper-comedian to bona fide savior of America. The best thing here, however, is a parallel-universe version of The Real World, in which the usual racial proportions on MTV's workhorse series are reversed, thrusting a token white guy into a Hoboken houseful of crazy African Americans. There are also laughs in "Ask a Gay Guy with Mario Cantoned," as well as a sketch about an "inner-thoughts cam" and a nasty piece about Chappelle's Make-a-Wish visit to a dying child, which decays into a cruel video game competition. Overlooking the series' weaker material, this is outstanding television comedy. --Tom Keogh

I love this show and now I FINALLY OWN A COPY!!!! Anyway, this T.V. show is hilarious and very courageous. I admier Dave. He's taken a lot of critizism because of this show and he still goes strong and even makes the sketches more daring. This DVD contains all 12 episodes from season 1 and they're uncensored and unblurred!(the way Dave wanted them to be.) Bonus material contains audio commmentary from Dave Chappelle and series co-creator Neil Brennan, bloopers and deleted scenes, and unaired footage of " Ask A Black Dude" with Paul Mooney. Here's the episode guide(the one that's from the packaging!)
episode #1
Dave Chappelle plays Americas most vicious blind white supremacist and unveils racy "bootie" videos starring Nat King Cole. Also contains the hilarious Pop Copy skit.
episode #2
Dave Chappelle plays a crack addict who visits an elementary school to give an anti-drug speech.
episode #3
Dave shows a girl who curses her (...) the error of her ways and shares hilarious outtakes from "Roots".
episode #4
Dave awards women with great "NY (...)" and predicts the chaos caused by reparations for slavery.
episode #5
Dave reflects on "Great Moments in Hookup History" and dares viewers to "Ask a Black Dude"
episode #6
Dave imagines if "The Real World" did a season with an all-black cast and one super white guy.
episode #7
Dave takes a realistic look at "Pretty Woman" and "The Matrix and introduces the Wu-Tang Clan's new finacial consulting firm.
episode #8

I had caught snippets of Chappelle's Show here and there before, but I had never made a point of actually sitting down and watching a complete episode. Then a friend of mine told me about a hilarious skit featuring Dave Chappelle as a black white supremacist (he is blind and doesn't know he is actually a black man); if it was only half as funny as she said it was, I knew I had to see it for myself, so I soon bought myself a copy of Chappelle's Show Season One. Not only is the skit in question hilarious, it basically defines the type of humor Dave Chappelle brings to the comedy scene. I don't think the television viewing audience has ever seen anything like this before - certainly not to the extremes that Dave Chappelle takes it. When he jokes about the fact the show has not been cancelled yet, it actually rings with a bit of truth. Very few comedians could get away with this type of over-the-top humor.

To say that this is mature humor is something of an understatement. Adult language abounds, and all the bleeps you heard on television are now removed - thus, the Uncensored! tagline. You'll find a lot of jokes centered on human anatomy - especially female anatomy. Far beyond everything else, though, is a relentless comedic skewering of racism. Some would probably consider this a racist show, actually - the "n word" is used in abundance, and stereotypes of blacks, Asians, whites, and other races are exploited shamelessly. The whole point of the race-based comedy, though, is to show just how extreme and ridiculous racist thinking and behavior really is. Some people won't "get it," of course, and they will probably think Chappelle's Show is one of the most offensive things they have ever witnessed - and that's OK.

I kept hearing people talk about Daves show, so I finally decided to rent the DVD. Okay his show is good, and he is funny. No holds barred funny. He picks on everything, and anyone. What I enjoyed the most about the show was being to hear everything unedited. Which is why I did not watch the show while it was on Comedy Central, hearing the show being edited takes away from the enjoyment of the show. I spent so much time laughing there were times I had to rewind the DVD to catch things I missed. I found some skits funnier then others, and some were just shocking. I did not find any of the subject matter to be offensive, but if you are easily offended, then you should not even bother viewing this, because I'm sure Dave upset plenty of folks!!!
My one complaint is the fact they would keep the "we will be back after this commercial break", and then the show would be over. I thought that should have been left out completely.
Some of my favorite skits:
Life Like a Video Game
Player Haters Ball
Blackzilla
Tyrone Biggums
Racist Animals
What man want (spoof on the movie What Women want)
Wu Tang Financial
Ask a Black Dude
Star Wars Scandal
The Mad Real World
Ask a Gay Dude
Redman Potty Fresh Redman Toilet Freshener - I will get the brown out!!!
Wrap it up Box
Blind Black White Supremist
This is a fun show to watch.

I'll put it simply: hilarious stuff. Not all of the sketches work, and some of them are simply empty shock humor, but on the whole this is the CHAPPELLE'S SHOW season to remember (Season Two, on a whole, was not as good as this one, I think). Probably the best episode of the season is Episode 6, with two hilarious sketches: a hilarious spoof of "Antwone Fisher" starring Chappelle in his own jazzed-up life story; and an even funnier takeoff of MTV's "Real World," in which a white guy is forced to live with five other crazy black people, with hilariously bad results. I just couldn't stop laughing throughout these two sketches! Other highlights of the season that come readily to my mind include Episode 1's controversial Clayton Bigsby sketch, the two sketches involving crackhead extraordinaire Tyrone Biggums (Episodes 2 & 8), and the sketches in Episode 4 in which blacks finally get their reparations for slavery. Episode 9's "Player Haters Ball" sketch is a guilty pleasure of mine---sure, it relies too much on hollow insult humor, but the insults are sidesplitting. As for Episode 10's infamous skewering of R. Kelly...it's admittedly one-note, but it's funny too.
I won't talk too much about what makes Dave Chappelle funny (since that would take away from the humor, now would it?). Suffice it to say, he tends to use a lot of the stereotypes of blacks that are prevalent in our society today, but exaggerates them to such a degree that it veers into hilarious parody---that is what gives his brand of sketch comedy its valuable and relevant edge.
In short, if you want to see some smart TV humor, this 2-DVD set of the first season of CHAPPELLE'S SHOW will, for the most part, satisfy.
