Dave Chappelle Talks Prince, Bill Cosby, Trump in Rare Interview

"So many bad things happened to our heroes: Muhammad Ali had Parkinson's; Richard Pryor had M.S.; Prince died too young," comedian says

Dave Chappelle on 'SNL': ...ave to See

"Hillary Clinton" singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," host's powerful monologue and Chris Rock cameo in Election Day sketch highlight episode

Speaking to the New York Times ahead of the arrival of his Netflix specials, the comedian discussed the death of Prince, who the comedian caricatured in a legendary Chappelle's Show skit.

"It's a hard thing to talk about. I looked up to him like everybody did. I didn’t know him that well, but the times that we hung out were fun and very memorable and often funny. He was very generous with his advice, and he was very generous with his access," Chappelle said of Prince.

"He fostered a community among artists. He used to have these parties where we would go over to his house, and there would be all these musicians that I admired, and they’d just do these jam sessions in the basement. Everybody at the party was playing something. I think when he died there was the icon dying, but then there was this pillar in the community of people dying."

Chappelle also talked about Bill Cosby, who was a major influence on his comedy; Cosby's legacy has been permanently marred by decades of allegations of sexual assaults from dozens of accusers.

"The Bill Cosby thing was tough for me. I'm not saying that to detract from his alleged victims at all. But he was a hero of mine," Chappelle said.

"So many bad things happened to our heroes: Muhammad Ali had Parkinson's; Richard Pryor had M.S.; Prince died too young. And Bill just looked like one of the guys who was going to get to the finish line and just die of old age. And this happened. Jesus Christ. It’s awful."

In the New York Times interview, Chappelle also talked about his now-classic SNL monologue in the first post-Election Day episode and why it's difficult for comedians to poke fun at Trump, even if the president seems like an easy target.

"[Trump's] so skewed, it's hard to find an angle that sounds fresh," Chappelle said. "If you talk about him, it’s almost like you're part of the chorus and not a soloist."

Chappelle will release his first two Netflix comedy specials, The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas, on March 21st, with a third special featuring...w material also planned for 2017.

I truly hope you're just going through that phase wherein gay White men like to misappropriate Black women's culture in order to assimilate, because you calling every-other-body child, as if you maintained some sage wisdom, is not cute. wink

You are really on my jock today, but you are humping the wrong leg, bubba. Correcting a misspelling and making a joke has nothing to do with your quasi-soapbox pontifications about assimilation or whatthefuckever your inner SJW is screaming about today in the emerald city. Unless you're saying speaking incorrect English is part of black female culture.

But from one dude to another let me offer up a quick summation:

Lose - what you just did with this argument

Loose - the type of boxers you should buy the next time you come for me

Nice try, cocksucker. But you know what it is. Take that shit back to youtube for people who don't better. But you can miss me with rest as you are def NOT my type, there is nothing quasi about my pontifications, I don't know what a SJW is, nobody is screaming, and by now, I'm sure you're aware of the term Ebonics.

If a POC says that something you posted is offensive, one would think in 2017, you wouldn't get so defensive, and try and engage a dialogue that could help you grow. But typical of overly-sensitive White folks to make it about them. Eat a dick The Bad Way, dude.

And that lose/loose footnote? The Obama gif? It'd be funny, if it were funny.

Some light reading for you, Snowflake...

No need to apologize to me. lol I gave up being a spelling nazi online a loooong time ago.

But some people need to exert what little authority they have in their lives over others in order to make themselves feel superior.

But that's none of my business...

So silly...

Actually, the word y'all are fussing over isn't "child", it's a drawn out "chiiile" or "chiiile-honey" or...well, you get the idea.

This has "suck" written all over. it.





Chiiiild, I can't even deal with TBBT as it is right now. It's the same flat characters, half-dozen stale jokes, etc etc. All that shit in an adolescent???

You mean like that?

Again, my statement stands, and I find it even more troubling that this is seen as so silly, while this actual troll can tell the world how hurt she is by someone using the word "tranny". Miss me with all the semantics, and own your bullshit. bored2

I thought so too since half of my family members are black women of various backgrounds and are individuals. My mom said chiiiile quite often.

But back to the topic. I am glad Dave met Prince and chilled with him.

I've highlighted the words pertinent to this thread's (sub) discussion.

BTW, Dave and P go way back. At least to the '90s when Dave would perform his act at Paisley as an opener.

Okay fair enough LMAO....

I am not so sure about the pic lol maybe? Also, I thought when I first saw that skit I was like Uh-oh Prince would be mad. I am suprised he laughed it off.

But Charlie told Dave the Prince story and Dave did that skit. Charlie said in an interview that he tagged along because Eddie and Prince were more of friends. Charlie said that he tried to talk to Prince at an LA basketball game and Prince didn't acknowledge him. Ouch. eek

Sorry.

It's simply a colloquiallism, found mostly in the South, which implies an inside joke or a "wink/nudge" situation where one or more parties are not privvy to the aforementioned joke, therefore the assertion that they are "asleep" and the advice not to wake them.

It's shade, dear, old school Southern shade.

wink cool

Yeah, Arsenio mentioned P going to some "seedy after hours spot" with he and Eddie. But that CM moment...OUCH indeed. Wasn't that during P's douche-y phase?

Phase? While I cried, and still cry for P, he was often a douche. I'm curious to know when you think he was at his douchiest? lol For me, it has to be when he started suing fans, hence my "P-Funk" inspired user name.

Hmmm...

That's a hard call for me...Maybe back in the '70s when he was using the ejacucaster to send streams of Jergens into the audience? Nah. I dunno. P's certainly had his moments, but honestly, I've never taken any of it to heart. I simply shrug, chuckle and write it off as "P being P".

I realize that isn't everyone's Pfan experience, but I looked under the sofa cushions and couldn't find any effs to give.

cool

falloff The Jergens thing is gross, and kinda funny actually. (P likes his audience moisturized) But above, you mentioned his douchey phase, so I was just curious as to when that was. geek
