I don't know how many of you guys watch this show, but this is arguably one of the best things I have ever seen (this even beats probably the best RW cast ever)

I really don't know how he comes up with this stuff...they could make a 1/2 show just with Charlie Murphy telling stories and then have Chappelle have his own thing...the Rick James episode is arguably the funniest thing I have ever seen

I would argue this show is the best thing on TV right now

Am I the only person who hope this kid signs into the NFL and Roy Williams and Parcells get to let that comment stew for the next 7 months?

There is NO doubt it is the best show on TV right now and probably the most refreshingly original standup/skit comedy since Upright Citizens Brigrade. My only complaint would be that his musical guests have been MUCH weaker than the ones from last season.

This thread reminds me that I forgot to tape Chapelle last night (dammit!). Well, off to comedy central dot com to see when I can right this wrong of me missing Chapelle.

They really need to put that R. Kelly segment in a time capsule. I will not argue about this.

I love the Chappelle show, almost everything I have seen on that show has made me laugh, especially the Mad Real World.

Also put me in the camp of loving the Charlie Murphy stories, the Prince playing basketball one was awesome, but you can't top Rick James.

It's the second best laugh out loud show out there right now...right behind MXC.

"shirts vs. blouses"...priceless. Charlie Murphy should have his own spin off show.

Yes, this is the best show on tv right now. So much funny shit too choose from but my fav's so far this year are of course Charlie Murphys stories and the three Daves skit from a few weeks ago. Negrodamus is kind of lame tho. And yes, the Mad Real World is prob the funniest thing I've ever seen on tv.

"What did the five fingers say to the face? SLAP!"

I probably watched that Rick James episode about 4 or 5 times and couldn't get "I'm Rick James, bitch" out of my head.

One of my favorite recurring characters has to be Tron though. It was good to see Tron back on last night's episode.

The best recurring character ever is the guy doing the robot.

But what would it look like if I did my laundry in slow motion?

This is interesting because I personally think that this season is WAY below last season in terms of laughs. While I hated "Mad Real World," most of the other segments (especially the black white supremisist) were gold. This season, the only skit that I loved was the "draft" for the races.

I hated that the Charlie Murphy stories was stretched into a whole episode. It got so boring and it was such of a one-joke episode that I lost interest after the first segment. The later episode about finding the music that the different races would respond to was dumb as well.

Let me state that even as the second season is underpreforming, it is still better than 90% of the "comedy" shows out there today. I just wish that Chappelle would have come up with better material in the long delay between seasons.

Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!

I'm with torchslasher on this one.

It just looks to me like the show has gotten a bit lazy, particularly Wednesday's ep. It wasn't Chappelle's Show, it was a show where Dave just made an appearence.

I don't know if it's because season 1 set an impossible standard or what, but this has been the most disappointed I can remember being in a show. I've gotten a few chuckles, but nothing has made me LMAO like the first season.

A perfect example of the difference between the two seasons:

Season 1: Ask a Black Dude
Season 2: Negrodomus



You think WWE now is bad? Some of us had to live through 1993-1996!
