Lavell Crawford on Dave Chappelle's Black Audience, Faizon Love Attack

  • Опубликовано: 7 апр 2017
  • Lavell Crawford has a diverse body of work, appearing in iconic shows like Breaking Bad and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and working with actors as wide ranging as Tyler Perry, Mike Epps, and Adam Sandler. Here, he talks about getting more work in mainstream white productions than he does in black movies in shows. Lavell also theorizes that some black comedians and actors are reluctant to put their friends on unless they're already famous. Watch above.

    No offense but we gotta pray an work to create our own platform instead if worrying about who not giving us a chance build it an they will come, because one person can't help everyone then we complain wen they try to help people when you get bug you gotta look out for your team first so Kevin Hart and Tyler Perry not wrong they trying they best let's help make it easier for them by making a lot more platforms so we can work together on the same level

    Aries is bitter at Dave's success. Plenty of black people knew who Dave was before the Chappelle Show. It was a ridiculous thing to say.

    Its just Idiotic. Chappelle show came in 2003-4. How can u be black and not know Chappelle? Is this because He does not do more hood comedy? when I see His earlier standUps The Audience is mixed all the Time.for Comedians race is a interesting thing.It brings different View But Unique thing is that They r all funny. I am quoting Chappelle here 'I am 80% Black, 20% Comedian ' I think they r jealous

  • Christopher Moseley

    Almost all of my Black friends knew Dave before or after "Killing 'Em Softly", and almost none of my white friends did. A lot of us were anticipating it the show, so how could we have gravitated toward him after it came out? What about Half-Baked, that's the main thing I knew him from, that was '98. Nutty Professor, Woo. He was that funny up-and-coming dude. Kind of like Kevin Hart was in the early and the mid 2000s. I think we just have selective memories sometimes, and especially when we want to prove a point. The Sesame Street bit was legendary, people were quoting that and Half-Baked at least a few years before his show came out.

  • IanLEAU

    The saddest part about this is comedians like Lavell Crawford and Faizon Love have created an imagined community of black people that all of sudden had never heard of Dave before Chappelle Show. This was terribly inaccurate, because after his crazy performance, "Killin em softly", every black comic knew who was at the top of the game at that point. Dave had transcended the race barrier that so many black comics have trouble breaking through. There aren't a lot of articulate comics that can build that kind of rapport with diverse audiences like he can.

  • IanLEAU
    IanLEAU 8 месяцев назад

    It's funny that comedians are acting this way about Dave now because the moment he stepped out in the limelight he gets 4 Netflix specials and over $60 million. What's also funny is that Dave also mentioned this in his special, "age of spin", that there is a growing disconnect between the black community and himself.

    Always about race, we growing up with a generation of white kids that now except trans, gays, and people of color now more than ever. But here's the thing::: race issue will never go away, even if every white person died and a new breed became born they would still be blamed for the actions of their ancestors and the actions of the ones that are racist and in power. I hate you Americans you will never let color go, join the rest of the world

    I agree. Still to this day I don't find dave chappelle as funny as folks make him. Him and Kevin hart are literally tragic definitions of a comedian. I commend him on making enough people laugh to get multi a million dollar deal as obviously my opinion is 1 in a million, but as far as me checkin for what he's doing or to watch him, naw. Aries spears as well, not funny to me. I'm for L. Crawford, eddie griffith, and the likes. We was never in high school recitin chappelle jokes or Aries...And I went to a gutter academy

Chris Rock don't make good movies so he can't put every body on. But he paid Elise Neal and DL hugely he paid JB Smoove and Wanda Sikes. He put Terry Cruise all the way on (he actually had that role for Patrice Oneal but he shitted on the weak casting director during the audition) put Pam Tachina Arnold back in the game. Made Charlie Murphy a muthafukin star! Keep Chris Rock name out ya mouth.

Period point blank. Dave Chappelle is the funniest mutha fucka in the game. Peace

Than he was at the die hard 3 chillin on set smoking weed with Bruce Willis. chillin with his now wife the Asian chick in Washington Heights. Dave chappelle always been in the hood, on the club's, and as pro black as it comes. the only black comic that you cam throw 50 mill and won't sell out.

    This is some of the realist talk I've heard in a while. He's talking about black folks in entertainment but this applies to the entire black community period point blank. Hate it or luv it, it's sad but true. We are not known for giving a helpful hand up to each other or offering genuine support, we only try to deal with people who we feel are already successful and got something to offer or a hand out to give. Sometimes other people will deal with us, show love , and put us on before our own black community will. Look at rap. MTV was showing love and playing rap vids before BET did back in the day. He speaking the cold hard truth and it's hurting some of yall.

    I think a lot of people are missing the point of LaVell’s words. Dave Chappell’s was known by Black folks, I’ve known him since Men in Tights. However, we didn’t embrace him in this capacity until the Chappelle Show. Dave was already selling out shows with help of a white audience. If we dig deeper, it shows that for Black comics, like most Black entertainers, in order to continue to be successful and remain relevant and make money, they have to go mainstream and get White money from the White audience. That’s the downside about it.

    Dave's crowd in Killin' Them Softly was (from what i could see from a few crowd shots) about 50% black. In a country where blacks are 12% of the population, technically his black following is larger. If america was 50/50 black and white you would most likely see an increase in black audience. Not that it matters black/white/hispanic/asian whatever. Dave is a fucking boss and hilarious to most people with any sense of humor.

    these comedians are jealous of dave chappelle because when he had his show, he ruled comedy and now that
    he's back and he is getting bigger offers from netflix many comedians are intimidated by his potential. they know dave is the king of comedy . even if kevin hart had to battle against dave , dave would win because he is witty . most of the top black comedians can't think on his level. unlike many comedians I've seen , dave is a showman .
