If you are leaning toward a funk (as I am) this is a great defunking pick. I’m not sure how I missed it (2016), but I’m glad I found it. Chappelle is an interesting and multifaceted performer with impeccable timing and a genius like ability to make us like him while we are wincing. I wonder if he has a commentary to help us through these troubled times. As Sarah Silverman says in her tribute, I don’t always agree with him, but he always makes me laugh. The award ceremony includes lots of great comedians and wonderful music. Slightly jarring: Jon Stewart–I barely recognized him; camera pans on Chappelle’s sons who seem sullen, especially in contrast to his vivacious and outgoing little girl seated next to him.
