Oops, I did it again

Damn that Oprah. I was dutifully working and I left the tv on CBS and caught Dave Chappelle on her show. First off, he seemed half in the bag. He slurred his words a couple times and his eyes were glassy. He had to insist MANY times that he was not "crazy" as people had insisted since he did walk away from a rather lucrative contract. He did not come off as crazy to me. He came off as yet another ridiculous, self-involved celebrity that cracked under the pressure. He bitched about the working conditions he was subjected to at Comedy Central even after Oprah pointed out that he had extensive creative control over the show. He bitched about how actors of color are always forced to humiliate themselves by being made to wear dresses in movies. What the fuck ever, dude. I mean seriously. That is your big racist argument for Hollywood? He also commented that any good black man has a healthy dose of paranoia. Good attitude. I know very little of Dave Chappelle other than the few things I have heard from friends about how funny his show is. I seriously doubt that if he chooses to grace Comedy Central with is presence any time in the future that I will be tuning in. He is just another overpaid whiny baby.

He is a whiney baby. I bet those two guys who put on dresses for that movie (White Chicks, I think) were paid quite well and would make a sequal if asked.

What a narrow-minded fool.

Everytime I watched his show, there was something just a little too crude for me (and I can handle quite a bit). His "Prince Playing Basketball" skit WAS funny, but I think he's overrated.

Well, I am glad I wasn't home and thus missed the 1:00 a.m. replay of Oprah’s show,

He may be whiney, but he is FUNNY AS ALL GETOUT. For real.
