Dave Chappelle Pulls Off An Impossible Punchline | Netflix Is A Joke


– I actually write jokes backwards. I will write a punchline with
no particular set-up in mind. I just put it on a scrap of paper, and I’ll throw that scrap
of paper in my fishbowl. I have a fishbowl in my house
filled with random punchlines, and every once in a while
I’ll shake the bowl, and I’ll dig in there
and just pull one out and see if I can make that shit work. And I picked one for this special. It’s not an easy punchline to pull off. Are you ready? – [Audience] Yeah! – Here it goes, the punchline is “So I kicked her in the pussy.” (laughing) I haven’t finished the joke yet. (laughing) I just know whatever happens
in the beginning of the joke, at the end of the joke, for some reason, I’m gonna kick somebody in the pussy. And it’s going to be hilarious. When I was growing up, I was
probably about 8 years old, and at the time we were
living in Silver Spring. My parents did just well enough so that I could grow up
poor around white people. (laughing) And to be honest, when Nas and them talk about the projects,
nigga, I used to get jealous. Because it sounded fun, everybody
in the projects was poor. And that’s fair, but if you
were poor in Silver Spring, nigga, it felt like it
was only happening to you. (laughing) Nas does not know the pain (laughing) of that first sleepover
at a white friend’s house. (laughing) You come home on Sunday and
just look at your parents like. Y’all need to step your game up. (laughing) Everything at Timmy’s house works. Timmy was one of my first white friends like in my life, man. And one day I was at his house, we were just hanging out, and Timmy says “Dave, why don’t you
stay for dinner tonight?” I said, “Oh, man, I’d love to but I can’t. “If I’m not home before dark,
my mother will kill me.” That was a lie. (laughing) My mother had several
jobs, I hadn’t seen her in like three or four days. (laughing) And the only reason I lied to Timmy, was because at the point in my life, it was my experience that
white dinner wasn’t delicious. (laughing) I’d rather go home and fry some balogna or some shit like that. (laughing) But then old Timmy threw me a
curve ball I wasn’t expecting. He said, “Well it’s too bad
you can’t stay Dave, cause Mom “made Stove Top stuffing.” I said, “What the fuck, Stove Top? Well hold on nigga, let me make some phone calls real quick.” (laughing) I had seen that commercial so many times I had dreamt of getting my hands on some of that Stove Top stuffing. (laughing) And finally I met a
motherfucker that actually had a box of Stove Top in the house, I couldn’t miss this opportunity, so I pretended to call my mother. And then I came back and
I said “Timmy, Timmy, “you’re not gonna
believe this, great news. Mom said I can stay.” And he said, “Fantastic!” He said, “Why don’t you come with me, “and we’ll help set the table
and we can say the blessing.” I had no interest in setting
this motherfucker’s table, or saying these crazy ass Mormon prayers. I just wanted that goddamn stuffing! (laughing) So I told Timmy, I said, “You
know what, I’d love to help, “but let me go wash my hands first.” My plan was simple, wash my hands slowly, and by the time I’m done,
the table will be set, the blessing will be said, and all that there will be left to do is eat. (laughing) Went to the bathroom, I
washed my hands very slowly. I must’ve been in there
for about 10 minutes. (laughing) And suddenly, one of his
mothers came to the door. (laughing) She was like, “Hi, David, right?” I said, “Yes, ma’am.” She said, “Timmy tells me that you’re “planning on staying for dinner.” I said, “I hope that’s
not a problem, ma’am.” She says, “No, it’s no
problem, in fact we’d love “to have you, it’s just that
we weren’t expecting company, “and I’m afraid there’s not enough Stove Top stuffing for everybody.” So I kicked her in the pussy. Bam! Ladies and gentleman. (upbeat lounge music)

  1. Are people really that dumb? "Only chapelle can give you the punch line and it's still funny"…. okay all I'm gonna say is this, now imagine that exact joke again BUT WITHOUT HIM TELLING YOU BOTH THE PUNCHLINE AND HOW HE CHOSE IT…. now tell me how funny it is or even if it makes ANY sense whatsoever. The answer is that it doesnt and wouldnt be funny or even remotely a punch line at all if it wasnt setup EXACTLY how he did. Saying you kicked a woman in the pussy over not getting dinner WOULD NEVER FLY as a punchline by itself. That's WHY the joke is as long as it is. It HAS to be. Is it funny? Well it's debatable in my opinion but so is all comedy. Is it genius? Honestly YES. But not for the reasons many seem to think and that shows why Chapelle is so much more intelligent than a typical member of his fanbase.

  2. Funny thought- poor people around the world starve because there isn’t enough food BUT in America poor people die because we have TOO MUCH access to cheap food. We’re lucky af lol

  3. I am watching this in a restaurant and did not expect him to yell " So I kicked her in the pussy!" So loud and I guess the people from the other table wasn't expecting either… lol :3

  4. I think no one can beat DC! Because he is the most intelligent, eloquent and simply lovely guy! Thank you Dave for all the laughs! I'll pay more for your show than for Kevin's. He is literally half the man you are – like literally! 🙂

  5. I don't know. The punchline itself is great but the actual delivery at the end feels weak. Just putting it at the beginning without saying anything seemed better (like the story of the fishbowl already being the build up and then just the punchline)

  6. after he said he had a fishbowl full of punchlines that he takes in as he shakes it, in typical chapelle fashion i honestly was expecting hed say something like "the fish didnt like it though'"

  7. Still getting by saying nigga in front non black people. SMH!! and before anyone says something stupid….The GOAT, Richard Pryor, said it wasn't right,

  8. I'm white and grew up on fried bologna. At least, when we actually had any bologna in the house and I didn't have to resort to peanut butter & jelly or tuna fish sandwiches.

  9. Man, you know how eventually, every comic starts to sound like they're playing off each other's material? Not here. These are some of the freshest, and most honest jokes I've heard since I first heard Louis CK on his original HBO show. I remember thinking "Wow. This is some next-level shit! " when I was first getting into Louie, and also (big fucking also) Patrice O'Neal! Patrice's comedy was so ahead of its time that it's still fresh today! I think Dave Chappelle's set here is another one of those moments I just described. Sorry for rambling, but I'm high as fuck and this shit just hit me. Dave Chappelle has taken his audience so far across "the line" that you couldn't even see the thing when you looked back! About the honesty, it's one thing to be brutally honest with your audience, as comics so often do; but what separates a good comic and a great comic is the ability to be honest with YOURSELF. Dave has never held back or anything, but this set was just amazing! Sometimes, I find a lot of black comics lose me when the entire essence of their comedy is centered around being black. To me, that not really as funny in large doses, not because "I'm racist, blah, blah" but simply because I can't relate as much. Dave did a really amazing job….. this is the type of comedy that brings us all closer, but only those individuals who are as honest as the comedy itself. SJWs and other forms of cancer didn't find this set very funny at all, and this is because not only are they outwardly full of shit, but inwardly too!

  10. I see, so it's OK for Dave Chappelle to KICK a woman in the Pussy but oh NO, Trump is the bad guy for ONLY Grabbing at one…. Wow, there's no divide in America… Chappelle you have NOT been funny for decades, so just do what other old performers are doing and just quietly withdraw from sight. You are so believable with your "grew up Poor is Silver Springs Maryland" BS, fun fact almost no one POOR can afford to live in Silver Spring Maryland so how is it you claim to hail from there? Your OLD and out of touch with reality so just stop before you really embarrass yourself Dave…

  11. Chappelle is truly one of the kings of "on the spot" comedy. As mentioned in the video description, he really can turn anything into a joke…even a rogue cell phone ringing in one particular show. Omg…love it. He and George Carlin are my all time favorites!!!

  12. Am I the only one who thinks the girl in black and white (2:41) looks like ‘’rice’’ Glory from the YouTube couple slice and rice?

  13. That wasn't just the punchline. That was the setup. The joke only works BECAUSE you're constantly waiting for something that gets him mad enough to "kick her in the pussy"

  14. Why is wanting to "turn literally anything into a joke" a thing comics strive for? Yeah great YOU succeeded, trans people are still getting murdered en masse worldwide, you fucking morons.

  15. We know your not really calling your mom when we invite you to stay over for dinner we just don’t want to make you feel bad so we play along

  16. It's amazing how Dave brought us together again as a country considering he is a Muslim. (As well as a brilliant writer and performer).
    All conservative minded people watching Sticks and Stones are saying; "YES! You libtards finally get it. PC is for pussies.

  17. The first part makes a lot of sense actually, I once heard that the opposite of poverty is community, in community is when we are really rich
