The Uncomfortable Truths of 2019
26 August 2019 | by FiahmSee all my reviews

Dave still reliably dropping some awkward truth bombs, especially on the witch-hunt of Louis CK, the LGBTQRS folks, offence archaeology, false accusations and the terribly oppressed French actor Jussie Smollet. Some of the relentlessly anti-white-people stuff made me feel a little uncomfortable, but, to his credit, he's made a show that will make pretty much EVERYONE feel a little uncomfortable at some point or other, and that's something we all need from time to time.

His last few Netflix 'specials' have felt rougher around the edges and more haphazardly thrown together than an old-school, studiously crafted stand-up comedy movie, and this is no exception. Very little of it is ingeniously devised, laugh-out-loud jokes, and really what you're getting here is Dave Chappelle's opinions on the world today presented in a light-hearted, rambling manner. Going into it with that expectation, I found him to be a very enjoyable companion for an hour.
