Ep.- 30 Sticks & Stones: Why Chappelle Is Good, Funny, and Dead Wrong

Ep.- 30 Sticks & Stones: Why Chappelle Is Good, Funny, and Dead Wrong

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn discuss comedian Dave Chappelle's latest Netflix comedy special Sticks & Stones. The two co-hosts start by acknowledging how Dave has always been able to be irreverent, controversial and push boundaries while being a highly thoughtful and intellectual comedian. However, we found ourselves getting uncomfortable by some of Dave's bits on this Netflix special and for the wrong reasons. Graham and Jocelyn also analyze and agreed with Dave's attempt at exposing the "cancel culture" which is very predominant in today's society, but they both disagree with the notion that some egregious behaviors by some celebrities should be acceptable, and Chappelle's argument in defense of people like Michael Jackson and Louis C.K. is reprehensible. The two agreed that even while being incredibly controversial, Chappelle manages to remain funny, but he also seem to understand how some of the jokes and subjects he jokes about aren't indefensible and plainly offensive.
