The popularity of Chappelles Show has been attributed to how Dave Chappelle used humor to dismantle racial boundaries and stereotypes but thats not why the thing became such a phenomenon. See, whether its through his sketch comedy or his stand-up what you notice most about Dave Chappelle is that hed be a great guy to have in your circle of friends. You can imagine him sitting on the end of the couch, hoarding the Funyuns, cracking jokes about asinine shit that happened to him that day. Of course, this will never happen because: (1) You dont know Dave Chappelle, and (2) you never will.
Tonight you can pretend that Dave is your BFF when you and your buds hang out at Undergrounds Coffeehaus (2743 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) for a Chappelles Show marathon. The living room-inspired set up at Undergrounds is the perfect place to make you feel like Dave is kickin it old school with you and your posse. Theres no cover, so you can spend that pocket cash on coffee and snacks, which you will inevitably shoot out your nose while laughing. Chappelle would approve.
