Dave Chappelle "Comic Strip Live, NYC" (2/27/09) AUDIO RESTORED
I wanted to check out this epic four hour set by Dave Chappelle but the buzzy noise audio was unbearable. I decided to do some restoration for my own personal listening. It worked out well so I thought I would share it. Lots of great content over at the Comic Strip Live YouTube page. Subscribe to them today! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRsQ...

NOTE: This video has been reposted multiple times before my post. If anyone affiliated wants this taken down I'd be happy to. This version has restored audio to improve the viewing experience. Obviously not trying to profit or of other peoples work. Just sharing my own effort to make this more enjoyable. Thanks for the original post.

Chapelle is funnier just bullshitting and working out unfinished bits than most other comedians are in their official standup specials

Wow! Laughter in learning. If Dave Chappelle was a college professor his students would never be late or absent. This is classic material.

“I depend on my wife so much that my kids think that I am their brother.” Just priceless comedy!

Dave Chappelle: "I'm bombing" Me: ...watches for another 2 hours. Restarts the video.

Chappelle is the best living comic. Maybe the best dead or alive.. CMV!

I've always wondered if Dave's "anybody got a cigarette?," thing is actually a really neat trick to help himself and the audience connect.

I doubt he really needs one, he's more than rich enough and probably has a pack of his own cigarettes in his pocket, but by asking for one from the audience it creates a tiny kind of bond. A moment of give and take that makes everyone feel good: the giver of the cigarette for helping a person in need, and the gratitude of the person being given the cigarette.

Maybe I'm just stoned but it seems like a clever way for Dave to take off the pressure and include the audience so that everyone can relax and trust eachother just a bit more.

If just feels so natural, like those casual moments at bars or parties where everyone's friends and everyone's all just hanging out together. Amazing video.

He doesn't care if people interrupt. Unbelievable. He is genuinely interested in interacting with the audience. The man is adorable.

My guy Dave worked on his comeback 8 years then got 60 instead of 50 mill. Genius.
