Dave Chappelle: Killin' Them Softly (2000)

Dave Chappelle recently came out of hiding after a decade of living off the grid, and dropped two brand new comedy specials on Netflix. And as exciting as it was to finally get not one, but two whole hours of Chappelle doing his thing, the sad truth of the matter was that neither was very good.

Especially when looking back at how great he once was, his new ventures comes off as lackluster money grabs. Indeed, they were both made as part of a deal with Netflix, which also includes a third special, not yet filmed. But if the two others are anything to go by, it's not looking good.

So instead of being disappointed once again, why not go back and see the man at the top of his game, in what is arguably one of the greatest stand-up specials ever filmed.
