I just watched last night's Chappelle's Show on tape and man, was I surprised to see Wayne Brady. I never thought Wayne Brady was funny on Whose Line and his show was beyond horrible.

However, his willingness to completely make fun of himself and everything that's been said about him made for some hilarious TV.

Hats off to Wayne Brady for showing no ego and to Dave Chappelle for making Wayne Brady funny.

I haven't seen last night's Chappelle's Show yet, but I must take issue with the Wayne Brady bashing.

While his talk show is horrible, his stuff on "Who's Line..." is almost always good & often great. The guy is seriously talented, & based on some of his references & improvisational skills, VERY smart.
Colin Mochrie is the reason to watch that show, but Wayne is definitely one of the ingredients that makes the show work.

That show is probably the only reason to ever watch ABC Family!! :-)

The opening segment wasn't very good (Fear Factor w/ Tyrone Biggums), but the Wayne Brady skit was hilarious. I woke up my parents laughing when he broke the cop's neck. Seems as if everyone is trying to get on Chappelle's Show (this week had not only Brady, but Nick "You Just Got Served" Cannon, and Big Boi).

...Speaking of "You Just Got Served", South Park was pretty spot on last night. "You just got goth-served"

Josie Lawrence, Ryan Stiles, and Tony Slattery were the only reasons I watched Whose line. They were comedy gold.

I'm actually talking about the American version.

While I'm with you on Ryan, I just didn't find Lawrence & Slattery all that funny.
Colin & Ryan are like a modern day Harvey Corman & Tim Conway from their Carroll Burnett Show days. Those guys are amazing together.

Also, while I was never a big fan of Drew Carey, he makes the show so much more enjoyable than Clive Anderson. Drew has one of those infectious laughs & genuinely seems to be amused by some of the sketches.

If you just need a laugh, I would watch any of the American versions with Wayne, Colin, Ryan & the very funny Brad Sherwood. :-)

I was practically in tears during the whole Wayne Brady skit. From Paul Mooney appearing ("White people like him cuz he makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X") to him shooting Dave and laughing ("I'm Wayne Brady, bitch!"). I have NEVER seen Wayne Brady in anything, but he was hilarious in this.

I thought Chappelle Show blew SouthPark out of the water last night. Except for the "we just got goth served", that was f'n classic.

Tyrone falling asleep in the casket of insects was predictable but funny as hell. Big Boi got off a pretty good one liner too, "We're going roller skating on the moon bitch!" And Nick Cannon and Wayne Brady showing up to tie in past skits was sweet.

From the moment it became "Brady's Show" last night, I knew something good had to be in store. Man, was I proven right. I marked out for the "Training Day" scene with the PCP.

I watch "Whose Line..." off an on. Just whenever I get a chance. I tried watching the UK version but never really got into it. I'm a big fan too of Colin and Ryan. those two are a riot. I think my favorite combo has to be Ryan, Colin, Wayne, and Greg Proops. Maybe that's just because they're the most common combo. I dunno.

The title for the thread was one of the funniest things from the Wayne Brady skit. But the whole thing was gold, pure gold. Quite possibly the funniest thing I've seen in years.

On the Brit version I always liked Colin, Ryan, Mike and Tony.

Especially Tony. He was High-Brow Dry English Toilet Humor. And his mini-fued with Clive was classic.

But damn, I missed last night's Chappelle. Anyone know if/when it will rerun?

Probably about 82% of the time you tune into Comedy Central between now & next Wednesday. ;-)

Was that the season finale? Being in Japan for so long I didn't even know who Wayne Brady was. When they did that Negrodamus sketch, the comment about Wayne went right over my head. Funny show, South Park was good too but had nothing on Chappelle.

According to TVTome.com the show has one more episode to go this season. Plus it also says Chappelle show has been picked up for a 3rd season in case anyone didn't know.

Yikes! I forgot they had an American version with Drew. I've worked nights for so long that I don't really catch network sitcoms. I only catch South Park and Chappelle's Show because they repeat them all week.

I thought Josie was hot. Don't ask.

It probably made my opinion of her all the more biased.

I have to agree with you there. Hell, put Greg Proops in there too with them. Colin, Ryan, Greg, and Mike McShane were a good 4-some.

I totally agree with the awesomeness of last night's episode. I just checked out the season 1 dvd, and I have to say that this season is definitely leaps and bounds ahead of the other one (as with any good tv show IMO). I thought that the first season was really hit and miss, with the Player Haters' Ball, R.Kelly's 'I Wanna Pee On you', and the intro of Tyrone being great, but episodes like The Real World skit, Ask A Black/Gay Guy segments, and Trading Spouses being a little flat.

Whereas this season, we've had a bunch of "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong" shorts, The Three Faces of Dave, (the hilarious) A Moment With Little John stuff, the Rick James skit, The Racial Draft, and now "Wayne Brady: Bad Ass Mother" to name a few. It seems like they've definitely struck the right balance between being satirical, offensive, and funny. (Which makes sitting through the horrendously long and frequent commercial breaks bearable.)

I have a white friend who started watching the show this season and oddly enough, finds the white jokes the funniest. I also noticed that a recurring theme this season seems to be Dave leaving the show (last night's episode, and the one where Oprah's his baby's mama). I found that kind of ominous, but since they're apparently going ahead with a third season I don't feel the need to worry.

If my memory serves me correctly...

Chappelle's Show has a two-show rerun (this week's and the week before) on at 9p EDT Saturdays.

Not this Saturday. They're doing a Chapelle's Show marathon starting at 9pm. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to include Wednesday nights.

Which totally rocked. Blew South Park away, actually.

Wow...I thought season 1 was hit or miss too, but I think my hit/miss list is the exact opposite of yours (Aside from the R. Kelly segment). The other highlights from that season are the "Make A Wish" skit ("Its too REAL for ya!") and Popcopy ("Hell yeah, I suck toes.")

That's the great thing about the show is that everyone I've talked to who has seen it, have different bits they love.

Dave's rich white man impression is always dead on.

My favs from Season 1 are the Player Haters Ball (I bet she has dick holes in her underwear), Player Haters Ball outtakes (I would comment on your bitches, but you look like you ate them all!), and the "I want to Piss on you" video.
