Dave Chappelle explains what convinced him to host "Saturday Night Live"

  • Опубликовано: 19 мар 2017
  • After what he calls a career "detour," comedian Dave Chappelle is making a comeback with three new Netflix specials. In a rare interview, he tells "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King about the tipping point that made him "resolute" on his "Saturday Night Live" appearance last November: SNL's first new show after President Donald Trump was elected into office. Watch Gayle King's in-depth interview with Chappelle Monday, March 20, only on "CBS This Morning."

    There is this intangible trait that Dave Chappelle has that is unlike anything I've ever seen in anyone, let alone a comedian. He is able to make fun of anything or anyone and somehow leave that thing or that person their dignity. Even when he makes fun of races other than his own, he always spits the truth without taking our dignity. There is a Zen of Dave Chappelle and I think we could all use some. He transcends his own celebrity with grace, kindness, and understanding.

    Hes a good guy who had problems with the Illuminati in Hollywood, like many stars do. He fled to Africa, Randy Wuad has lost everything, prince and michael murdered, all by same satanic elite such as Rothschilds/Soros/CFR. Hope hes staying away from them, good to see him again though.

    Jan 2018:::Dave CHAPPELLE is 44 years old now...but he seems a lot older and SLOWER. His speech is slow and drawn-out and he often times seems like he's at a loss of words. Also his upper body is SO THICK now. Seems strange he has never talked about his new muscle-bound arms and torso or HOW exactly he went about gaining this new muscle mass. One more observation: looking at his EARS when he's younger shows very pointy ears, almost like Dr. Spock, but NOW his ears don't have the pointy tops anymore...I think he was cloned or we're looking at a look-alike.

    Tosh called it; dave snapped from fame-stress and had a Richard Pryor type breakdown. Dealing with the corporate world made him feel as though he was losing his "blackness" and he ran away to Africa to "cleanse" himself. Just like Pryor, he comes back but he's never the same. He still keeps it pretty level on stage, but off stage he has gotten more and more militant. Just watch recent interviews with people like Jimmy Kimmel and you can tell it takes all his strength to stay calm and not take everything white people say as an insult. He only contributes to the conversation if the interviewer is black or at least non-white. Comics like George Lopez ruined their careers by being racist so Dave knows to keep his mouth shut for fear of losing money. Watch him closely, when he gets angry with a white person he gets quite/pauses and chooses his words very carefully. There are even inside the actor studio interviews where literally the only time he gets passionate enough to contribute to the conversation is when he says he is smarter than the people interviewing him, but chooses to talk street when comfortable. The best comics alive are Rock, Tosh, and Iglesias yet everyone treats him as a god because he snapped and ran away. Now everyone tip toes around him because he's visibly mentally fragile and he acts like he is Pryor because he mistakes this tip-toeing as admiration. Aren't racist celebrities fun as long as they aren't white so it's totally okay? ....... #nobodyCaresAboutYourSkinColorYourJustAdick

    Am I the only one that thinks Dave knows somethin..? He's always been adamant about saying that things aren't always as they seem, and the hints he's dropped over the years just really make it seem like he knows something we all aren't entirely aware of or are just completed oblivious about. His behaviors and body language suggests he's uneasy or on edge when he comes back into the public eye, I just wish we all knew forsure why. But I still got mad love and respect for this man, he's different but in the best way a person in the entertainment industry can be.

    After hearing his first cousins testimony about how Dave passed and he was cloned, when you have his own family saying it's not him, it's not him. Best quote from his cousin speech, dave bought a farm to get away from Hollywood, why is he back all of a sudden, being in the spotlight. Dave was murdered, even katt williams says he was decapitated in front of him.

    what I love about this interview is, unlike so many people in hollywood, dave is fidgetting sometimes in the interview, looking around while he's talkin, consistently breaking eye contact. To me, that looks like he's a real guy who's sincere in how he's talking and what he's saying. You dont really see that too often in TV.
