I was hoping for something a little closer to sketch comedy brilliance (like Comedy Central had with the UCB), but it was alright. Chappelle's strong point is obviously standup, but I really didn't care for the live studio audience. They were mic'd way too heavily and came off as distracting, as opposed to how the audience on Mr. Show was.
Between the commercials and his appearance on Conan last night, they gave away almost everything from the car commercial bit, but it was still ok. The copy machine training tape was pretty good, kinda surprised to see Michael Rappaport, being funny even. The black white supremacist bit went on too long for my tastes, but it was fairly funny and seemed like a solid declaration that CC is giving Chappelle some envelope to work with, and that's a pretty good thing.
Really did come off as The Chris Rock Show bleeped and without music, though.
The black white supremist was funny. I don't really know if that type of show will last of CC though. It might start to piss people off. Of course by now the Christian majority, womens right's, pro-minority, or other similar nosey douchebags should realized that protesting just gains the show, movie, or record in question more money. But like Dragnet the movie I suspect that they are actually working together. Or maybe they really are that stupid.
