Chappelle’s Show Marathon

The popularity of Chappelle’s Show has been attributed to how Dave Chappelle used humor to dismantle racial boundaries and stereotypes — but that’s not why the thing became such a phenomenon. See, whether it’s through his sketch comedy or his stand-up what you notice most about Dave Chappelle is that he’d 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 don’t 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 Chappelle’s 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. There’s 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.
