Dave Chappelle didn't come to play. The comedian took the stage at the Roots Picnic this weekend, and while be promised the crowd he wasn't going to "tell one joke," he had plenty of disses to hand out.
Chappelle took shots at everyone from Donald Trump to Key & Peele to his own aging self during his time on stage, proving that his long hiatus from comedy did nothing to soften his tongue.
The first time he hopped on stage, Chappelle shared his thoughts on the Republican candidate for president. “I hope everybody votes. I know it’s a tough decision,” Chappelle said with sarcasm. “Hillary Clinton versus white Malcolm X. That crazy carrot-top head motherfucker is gonna kill us all … and lower my taxes. I got a tough decision ahead of me. Do I go with my new white life or my old Black one?”
Later in the evening, he went hard for Key & Peele, telling folks to “put some respect on my name. Y'all don't know what I've been through, watching Key & Peele do my show the last five fucking years.” But he saved the sharpest jab for himself, telling the crowd he's aged so much since Block Party that he feels like "f**king Morgan Freeman."
Nice to see Dave hasn't gone soft in his old age.
