the top 11 chappelle show sketches

In preparing to go see Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Stuart discovered this top ten list of Will Ferrell sketches from Saturday Night Live. It contains links to the YouTube video for each skit as well as justifications for the ranking. Even though some are painful to watch, I have to say they are quite funny.

More humorous still, but much edgier in subject matter, is this list of top 11 Chappelle’s Show sketches. Chappelle’s Show aired for two full seasons on Comedy Central before its creator, Dave Chappelle, pulled the plug . (Read more Chappelle’s show history at Wikipedia.)

The list covers the best of the best. I’m not positive that I agree with the ordering, but Black George Bush, The Mad Real World, The Black Klan Leader, Wayne Brady and The Racial Draft are all classics. You can watch more Chappelle’s Show clips at Comedy Central.
