Someone was with Jerry on Cars and Coffee and said no one does colleges anymore because of all the crying from students. hell, it might have been Jerry himself. Truly a sad country we live in when adults don't know anything about sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

Even in the late 90s, I remember a college (or at least the loud voices) flipped its shit when George Carlin did a show and how insensitive/toxic/politically incorrect/etc.

Chappelle is one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long standing deal with him. His last special “Sticks & Stones,” also controversial, is our most watched., stickiest and most award winning stand-up special to date. As with our other talent, we work hard to support their creative freedom – even though this means there will always be content on Netflix some people believe is harmful, like “Cuties,” “365 Days,” “13 Reasons Why” or “My Unorthodox Life.””

Several of you have also asked where we draw the line on hate. We don’t allow titles Netflix that are designed to incite hate or violence, and we don’t believe The Closer crosses that line. I recognize, however, that distinguishing between commentary and harm is hard, especially with stand-up comedy which exists to push boundaries. Some people find the art of stand-up to be mean-spirited but our members enjoy it, and it’s an important part of our content offering.



also lol

Watched the first half last night with my wife, will finish it up tonight. Some of the jokes have changed/been polished since I saw him in July.

The first 30 minutes did have my favorite joke of the whole special. It is subtle and didn't get the biggest laugh. It was when a guy tells him "They are after you." and he responds "One they or many theys?"

Flat He went for some kind of magnum opus comedy show + great message of togetherness, but the comedy and message were just not great.


Appreciate him trying, I guess.

I thought it was pretty good. Pushing back and fighting for his culture and freedom. Showing the right way to protest. Decently funny as well. I wonder if the people outraged even got to the end to understand what they did to Daphne.

it was alright. only a few laughs really. he was throwing out quite a few spicy jokes. started with the church pedo stuff, space jews, etc. probably intentionally trying to piss off everyone a bit. maybe get them to see the blind spots.

Never sure how much is "just jokes" versus what he actually thinks. Still drops this anti-white, anti-cop stuff casually. like, he specifically says, im not anti trans, Im anti-white. which makes you think its mostly joking. But, then like he gives the story about the black slaver, and comes to the conclusion, the guy learned it from white people.. right...

LMAO, how much of a candy ass does someone have to be to attend a show of a comedian and his content you don't like, only so you can complain about it later. When I see or hear something I don't like, I turn it off and change the channel...just like 93% of the other people on the planet.

Check out the TV forum. People watch shows they hate every week just to go on the internet and whine about it.

The fact that a comedian telling jokes in a special is news worthy is a telling sign of how bad things have really gotten. Even moreso when you see how tame this special was. This wasn't Eddie Murphy Raw this was Dave asking for a truce with faggots.

Netflix has fired a leader of the trans employee resource group who was organizing the upcoming October 20th walkout. The employee, who is Black and currently pregnant, asked not to be named for fear of online harassment. They have been encouraging trans employees and allies to walk out of work in protest of Netflix’s handling of the Dave Chappelle special The Closer.

“All these white people are going around talking to the press and speaking publicly on Twitter and the only person who gets fired is the Black person who was quiet the entire time,”
