Dave Chappelle is back, but according to some folks on Twitter, he should have stayed put.

Feelings over the comedian’s newly released Netflix comedy specials have been wildly mixed, which might come as a shock. After all, it’s Dave Chappelle!

One Twitter user wrote, “I wish this Dave Chappelle special was funny.” Someone else wrote, “Unpopular opinion Dave Chappelle isn’t funny.”

The good news is, more people have been showing Dave love than not. “ again proves he’s the smartest and greatest comic of our Era,” a fan tweeted.

And one social media user pretty much said it best: “Dave Chappelle still funny AF”.

Another person raving about the comedian’s specials is fellow comedian, Kevin Hart.

After folks blatantly started comparing Dave to the Ride Along actor, he tweeted: “Giving my brother a standing ovation!!!! Make sure you check out his new stand up specials on Netflix!!!”

Hart added, “The real will always recognize the real….I am & forever will be a student of this comedy game!!! @DaveChappelle is one of the G.O.A.T.”

Earlier this week, Netflix released dual specials by Dave, The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium and Deep in the Heart of Texas: Live at Austin City Limits.


Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
