This is pretty much how I know Rick James, as played by Dave Chappelle. Thanks to Chappelle’s Show, a younger generation of people who have no business knowing who Rick James is can tell what his favorite drug was (cocaine).
Paul Mooney played Negrodamus on Chappelle’s Show. Here is the moving picture.
Dave Chappelle has long had a nice steesh. I’ve actually had a post saved with this picture for a few months. I was hoping he would enter the news somehow or come out with a new comedy album. No such look. He keeps a low profile.
I was watching Chappelle’s Show a few nights ago though and I can’t believe how funny it still is. Plenty of laughs from skits I’ve watched over and over again. Plenty of Steeshes as well.
Thanksgiving is great because people make me food and then I have 4 days off. That’s enough for me. The rest of the weekend I laid around watching things. One of those things was Important Things with Demetri Martin, which was a short-lived but funny show on Comedy Central. You can watch it for free on Netflix if you’ve already paid for Netflix.
Jason Bateman posted a picture to his twitter yesterday claiming to be from the set of the new season of Arrested Development.
The problem is that the picture includes no one from AD and two of the guys from Workaholics. Is it a Arrested Development/Workaholics crossover? How in the world would I know, goofball? I’m at a desk in Chicago.
Of course then there was this picture (and another) of David Cross(?) that I saw in a comment section on Facebook, which is where I go for most of my facts:
Blake Anderson, along with fellow steeshman Anders Holm, is part of the Mail Order Comedy group and co-creator/co-star of Comedy Central’s “Workaholics.” I am not a pothead, but I think I relate to the humor because I like things that are funny.
Do not watch this clip if you get offended by things:
Hannibal Buress is from the West side of Chicago, and returned home to headline a show at the Park West. He is coming off of his Comedy Central Special, Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace, which was very funny.
At the top of the show he told the crowd that all the money from the night was going to be donated to the grammar school he attended on the west side, but he was going to be talking about some horrible things so it was “dirty money.” He then went on to talk about how the pig is more versatile than turkey, citing the fact that with pig you can have bacon, ham, pulled pork and with turkey you just get turkey. Also that Ms. Piggy was able to have sex with a frog.
Hannibal killed it for over an hour with all different material than his hour special. Even the stuff that you could tell he was still working on was funny. He had a DJ come out to play lines from hip hop songs so he could analyze how absurd they were.
To open the show, Hannibal had two openers, both who perform in the Chicagoland area often. One had a steesh and one didn’t. I’ll just link their names to their websites if you are interested in learning more about them. Both did an entertaining 15 minutes.
