    Although some of the concepts in this premiere episode are clever - a blind white supremacist who doesn't know he's black, a training film at a Kinko's-type copying business that teaches how to alienate customers - the results aren't as sharp or funny as the ideas. [22 Jan 2003, p.74]

    There are funny sketches and ones that go down in flames in comedian Dave Chappelle's erratic new series, which is interesting due to the unexplored territories it tills and the way it dares to offend sensitive types. [22 Jan 2003, p.53]

  • Steve Johnson

    If audiences get less misogyny and more of the clever, clear-eyed social observation he is capable of, they may come to understand why he has been forever on the brink of stardom. [22 Jan 2003, p.10]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    This show is genuinely ingenious, and hilariously outrageous - not to mention courageous. Plenty of people will find Chappelle's Show offensive - but then again, whenever you do something completely new, it's bound to offend somebody. In this case, it will offend a lot of somebodies.
