Product Description

Comedian Dave Chappelle does what he does best in this outrageous and hilarious standup performance, which allows him to really push the envelope and go even farther than he does on his TV show. Taped in San Francisco at the famed Fillmore, Chappelle lets loose on such topics as black celebrities, what it's like to have raunchy fans of his TV show approach him while he's trying to enjoy Disneyland with his kids, Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant and crackheads, of course.

Amazon.com

Dave Chappelle-For What It's Worth finds the Comedy Central superstar in performance at San Francisco's legendary Winterland, where he's welcomed with a huge ovation. Easing into his set, Chappelle shares a few observations about the city itself, noting there's nothing tender about the Tenderloin District: "You've got people smoking crack while sitting in front of Starbucks." Chappelle's inspiration dips a bit after that, as the subject of sex with monkeys and smoking weed with Indians doesn't quite reach his usual standards. Then, suddenly, he's on top of his game again, his material like an echo of vintage Lenny Bruce as he discusses why whites drink grape juice and blacks drink "grape drink," why police harassment has led him to believe in impromptu alibis, and why the culture of celebrity should stay away from real-world issues: "Maybe Jah Rule doesn't have the answers we want in a disaster." --Tom Keogh

If you're like me, and enjoy the Chapelle Show, you'll find that this program is a little different: no clips, just a pure standup comedy programm. And Dave is killing here. He takes on topics like where AIDS came from and different drinks with black and white people. Calls the greenback "baseball cards with slave owners on them". Just great comedy with a clear political undertone.

In this context he discusses the wavering standpoint of society towards fifteen year olds.

Wunderful, meaningful, inspiring, just plain funny!

So go get this - And get "Killin' them softly" too!

I ordered this on PPV sometime last fall. I was hoping they would release it on dvd sometime soon and here it is. This go right up there with his "Killin' Them Softly" dvd well worth the money, Dave is one of the best comedians out there. So, if you've not seen this yet and are a big fan of his do yourself a favor and order or buy this when it's released.

Dave is hilarious and energetic. The jokes and his standup are classic. And you will be rolling on the floor, grabbing you gut, trying to catch your breath because you're laughing so hard.

From beginning to end, from Comedy Central to DVD, Chappelle is our generation's greatest comedian...hands down. He will have you laughing, while poking fun at the stereotypes we hold about people, society and ourselves. Interesting social commentary in the form of standup.

If you love laughing, "For What's It's Worth" is worth every dollar.

Chappelle's accessibility (and his racially charged & sympathetic humor) sparkle in this live stand-up appearance. This guy is about as likable as it gets, his characteristic wit pulling the audience in even as it knuckle-rubs their heads. On this disc, Dave discusses everything from crackheads (no surprise there), Native Americans, smoking in public, the American justice system, and grape juice. Even when his humor is topical (e.g. OJ and Michael Jackson), it retains a sense of warmth and giggle-worthy rib-nudging that makes this recording both hilarious and re-watchable. The only drawback is that it is lamentably short (it barely clocks in at an hour) and the disc is notably lacking in any special features whatsoever.

i dont know what these people are talking about.. this was wayyyyyy better than killing them softly, I thought killing them softy was funny the first time i saw it, but there wasn't anything that made me want to go back and view it a second time, but this one. for what it's worth.. it's funny as hell, i would definately watch this a few times.. last comedy show i watched over and over before this was jamie foxx's i might need security.. So if you liked that, you'd love this.. espcially if your fan of the chappelle show

Not nearly as good as his previous special, "Killing Them Softly", Dave Chappelle's new cable stand-up special may have been destined to come off feeling mediocre in comparison. After a star-making second season of his hit comedy series, "Chappelle's Show", Dave seems less hungry on the second go round. Touching such subject matter as fame, intercourse with monkeys, and famous black celebrity trials, "For What It's Worth" is a hardly a failure in the humor department but it just isn't the home run that "Softly" was. It's a good time nonetheless.

Though it be his masterpiece, I pray this is not the final recorded stand-up performance of Dave Chappelle's career. Despite the best efforts of a speculative and intrusive fan base, and a cold and cutthroat Hollywood work environment, Dave Chappelle found a way to delve deep into his soul and produce for us a work of comedy every bit as witty and insightful as ever have been recorded. When the suits of Comedy Central and the proprietors of comedy's old guard finish marching lockstep to Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Lenny Bruce, and Bill Cosby, and finally turn around, they would realize their dwindling entourage and the exodus of youth towards comics like Chappelle. That "The Chappelle Show" was the monitary success it was and created the social impact it did, despite its short run time and cable television venue, speaks volumes of this man's talent.
"For What It's Worth" delivers social commentary without being preachy in a discussion about "How old is 15 really?", skillfully pokes fun at racial differences in bits surrounding passing out at a white persons house and drinking grape Kool-Aid, and broaches the oft treaded territory of relationships without resorting to the same ol' "women are emotional" and "men are clueless" schticks. There is no greater evidence of why you should own this performance, than his closing bit "Long Live Chappelles" where Dave talks about his 3 year old son making him a macaroni necklace. It's such an incredible bit, and my personal all-time favorite, because it shows a man as vulnerable, thoughtful, and caring, which, unfortunately, are aspects of men not often expressed on stage. Maybe if Dave continues to amass fans at the rate he has, comedy will be forced to evolve into a Chappelle form, a form with broad appeal that doesn't sacrifice intellect or humor.

Take this home and take it in.

This guy never fails to amaze me ...... I watch all his stand ups over and over again and they never get old he really pushes the barriers of our ethics and shame and does it without a care and for that it makes his acts much more appealing
