The perfect venue for Chappelle’s ironic blend of inflammatory yet inclusive comedy. In staging “the concert I’ve always wanted to see” in Brooklyn, Chappelle brings together mostly black hip-hop artists (Kanye West, Mos Def, Erykah Badu), a college marching band and two ancient hippies who live on the block, among others. It’s not exactly a melting pot – in his typical disarming fashion, Chappelle observes from the stage, “I’m trying to find a Mexican. Hard to find a Mexican” – but it does make for an
entertaining afternoon of ramshackle camaraderie. Unobtrusively directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
