Originally aired on HBO in 2000, "Killin’ Them Softly" is without a doubt one of the funniest standup specials available. You’ll never laugh more than you will here. Dave spares no victim as he addresses issues about the Police, Racism, Sesame Street, Kids, and the Government. It’s hilarious! Comedy doesn't get any better than this! Welcome DAVE CHAPELLE’S "Killin’ Them Softly" to the prestigious PLATINUM COMEDY SERIES. Bringing you the funniest comedians in America!

Amazon.com

Killin' Them Softly is easily one of HBO's best comedy specials, catching star Dave Chappelle at a career high in 2000 and with an abundance of hysterical, highly polished material. Taking his time, stretching concepts and bits like a master, Chappelle plunges into a wealth of anecdotes and observations about the influx of white people into Washington, D.C. (where this show was recorded) since the 1980s. ("Who are the scariest people? White guys in black gangs. No telling what they did to get respect.") There are fantastic tales of racing cops with Chappelle's white friend, Chip, and a great story about being left alone in a limousine outside a busy crack house. Other good stuff: introducing a kid to a PePe Le Pew cartoon and realizing too late the skunk is a sex criminal, and why we should know our 911 calls will end up played on television. --Tom Keogh

This is a very funny performance from the man himself Dave Chappelle. This performance was in Washington DC and was a 2 hour special he had on HBO. As going into the first hour already I was laughing my (...)! Dave Chappelle talks through the troubles of an average black man. This DVD would have been more better if it had special features. It would have been great if there was an interview with Dave or backstage behind the scene look. But its all good. This performance still covers with its raw sense of mentality. If you have the Chappelle show 1st season in your DVD collection, you have to add this to your collection. A must buy DVD.

Dave Chappelle's humor is one of a kind. You won't find this comedic act yelling and screaming to get your attention. This show will keep you wanting more because Dave tells his tales like it is. From the whole Sesame Street gang to sex and drugs, where does he come up with this stuff? I've seen Dave in many small movie roles such as Blue Streak and Men in Tights, but I think Killin' Them Softly shows his strong talents. I've been waiting for this DVD to come out a long time and am happy to see it be available soon. There is no comparing Chappelle to Chris Rock, Bernie Mac or Chris Tucker, this guy is on his own level.

From where I am, I do not see Chapelle on HBO. But I saw this gentleman on Conan o'Brian's late night show, and was hooked. He was comfortably slumped in Conan's chair and displayed a natural sense of comic timing. A quick search on Amazon revealed that there were DVDs of his shows. I ordered. Was in store for a ribtickling hour or so. This guy is good!
In this particular cameo, he comfortably treads the line of race, social commentary, kids, the presidency, relationships and some other miscellaneous things. I could go on about the material in and of itself, but that'd only serve to spoil something that you should have no idea is coming at you.
Highly recommended for anyone who likes humor.

This is the kind of comedy that you can't wait to show to all your friends. I have even showed this to non-americans and they still get all the jokes and laugh hysterically. If you like "tell it like it is" comedy, then you CAN NOT miss this fantastic performance. From the opening jokes to the end, this is a well timed and well delivered performance from Chappelle. I have not seen anything this funny since Eddie Murphy retired from stand-up. Not for kids, but no way can you pass this up for great laughs. And trust me, you will watch it over and over, only laughing more and more at all the great jokes like "romance is dead, (women in the audience clap) but women killed it (men high-five!)"

Dave Chappelle's Killin' Them Softly ranks up there with the best. What really differentiates Chappelle from other comedians, something I don't often see mentioned in his evaluations, is his nack for subtle humor. Although his material is outrageous in concept, his delivery is what makes it so brilliant. He throws in little words here and there, facial expressions, and masterfully realized impressions that are all made with such a laid-back delivery. It's subtle. He captures emotions. Seriously, it's not hype... the man is a brilliant comedian. Even if you're not a fan of Chappelle's Show, you'll love this special.

I became a Chappelle fan through the show, and first saw Killing Them Softly in 2005. Even though it's 5 years old now, it could have been done yesterday. Dave's material is relevant, hysterical, and just amazing. He's so comfortable in front of the audience here. The DC crowd is so energetic in welcoming Dave back, and Dave feeds from it. He's focused and razor-sharp. The best Chappelle material of all time!! If you've seen "For What it's Worth" and were disappointed, come back to this one!

I came across David Chappelles stand up on a compilation dvd of the Just for Laughs festival. His section was only a few minutes long but he was easily the funniest comic included.

I decided to look him up and found this dvd at a low price. Im glad I got it. David Chappelle is hilarious. From the baby on the corner in the ghetto to the unbelievable stories of his white friend "Chip", this dvd is hilarious from start to finish.

Highly recommended.

If you're in the mood for some irreverent, occasionally off-color black comedy but Chris Rock is a bit "much" for you, this HBO standup special is definitely a worthy option. Dave Chappelle doesn't share Rock's abrasive tone, rapid-fire delivery, or penchant for bursts of profanity, but behind his low-key approach is an equally bold and perceptive comic voice. And he's really in his element here, free from the inconsistency that has plagued his Comedy Central sketch show since its premiere last year. Armed with an arsenal of voices ranging from Oscar the Grouch to Bill Clinton to a generic white guy, Dave offers his hilarious take on subjects few comedians can address this well without going over the top. His assessments of modern-day race and gender relations elicit frequent fits of hooting and hollering from his audience, and it's easy to see why, as Dave seems to have a knack for expressing what everyone else is thinking. Dave also proves himself to be a master storyteller, particularly with an account of a night in the projects that's both hilarious and depressing at the same time. Later on he examines the hidden messages in kids' TV, unveils his plans for becoming the first black president, and of course skewers the whole Clinton-Monica Lewinsky situation, how the media covered it, and just what it tells us about the nature of celebrity. As I've already mentioned, Dave has his own show on Comedy Central right now, and while it's shown a lot of potential it hasn't quite has its stride yet. If you want some prime Chappelle, kick back with this DVD and of course a copy of "Half Baked."
