    We saw ourselves like you see yourself.

    Eerie. In this bizarre moment we are all currently experiencing, who better to guide us across the River Styx than Dave Chappelle? Here, completely unhinged and brazen, raw as a nerve, angry as shit, but utterly vindicated and proven right by reality time and time again. What he manages to do in less than a half hour of material - connecting the seemingly-disparate dots of Candance Owens, Kobe Bryant, Christopher Dorner, his own…

    ★★★

    Kinda baffled by the astronomically high marks for this one, but I'm extremely happy that society is finally catching up to The Lonely Island boys.

    ★★★★

    Was honestly a little put-off up until that very last bit, facetiming the dude's mom in front of the crowd. That, and his classic dick-tucking bit, really got me. It reminded of how sweet Eric can be, and that his eccentricity is natural to him, not performative at all. He's earnestly an oddball and very comfortable with that. Total freedom!

    I still don't know if regular-ass stand-up is the best format for Eric, but he really makes it his own,…
