Dave Chappelle Comeback

14 posts in this topic

Dave Chappelle was at the Stevens Center in Winston Salem tonight. $52 was a little pricey when you include beer and shots at a bar across the street, beforehand. Had a great time though. He's incredible at was he does and a favorite for many my age (mid 20's). He will also be in Ral, Clt, and SC this week. He's still funny as poo. Welcome back Dave!

I think he's been doing stand-up again for a while?  Glad he's out there doing some more work though.

Yeah, he has been doing standup for awhile and actually I am not sure he ever really stopped for long. Mostly smaller impromtu shows so no one really hears about them. Think he has 3 shows this weekend in CLT.

 

I was going to go but I have heard that a lot of his recent shows have been fairly bad. A friend of mine has seen him 10 times and he said the last two times have been really bad and last year he actually walked out because he couldn't take it anymore. This guy is a huge Chapelle fan but said Dave had absolutely no material and just kind of talked and there was lots of awkward silence. Said if it wasn't for some hecklers out in the crowd there would have been no material at all. Good to hear the OP thought it was good and hopefully this go around is good for Dave,.

He's done a few shows here and there over the last few years.  He made comments like "I'm starting at the bottom again" and " I'm making my comeback".   He is now getting back on the road, which is a great thing.  He mentioned doing shows in the smaller cities because of the hospitality.  Either way, I was proud to have him here.

    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
