Review of Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits (2017)

Moving picture, 66 minutes

Seen in 2021.

Favourite bit: Chappelle bumming a cigarette off his audience for a little sit-down chat on the acceptability of the word “pussy”. The pacing of that bit is just great.

Least favourite bit: Playing down the need for vaccination against the measles, without dealing with the history of the subject at all. That just legitimizes conspiracist sentiment, and is therefore worse than legitimizing smoking.
