Damien Lemon’s Favorite Dave Chappelle Bit
Welcome to Mass Chappelle. It’s a celebration (bitches) of the two new Dave Chappelle standup comedy specials that Netlix will release on Tuesday. As part of the week’s Chappelle-bration we asked his fellow comedians to share their favorite Chappelle bits. The homie Damien Lemon is first up. Check out the clip above, and Damien’s thoughts below.
My favorite Dave Chappelle bit has to be “The Baby.” I just like that bit because it has so many levels. It just keeps heightening. It gets more and more absurd, but at the same time, it’s commentary, you know?
At the beginning he starts off being taken to the hood. It wasn’t anything that was on the agenda—he was taken to the hood at 3am. And the way it happens is he’s in the back of his limo and he got the limousine driver having this one-sided heated conversation. “What!? Slow down!? Hold on, nigga! What? Nigga, I’m on my way!”
And the motherfucker takes him to the hood. He said, “Yo, I didn’t even know we was going to the hood ’til I’m lookin’ out the window and I see liquor store-liquor store-gun store-gun store…” And he gets to the hood and he sees this little baby on the corner, by hisself. Nobody’s out there, just a little baby.
And the baby don’t even look scared. He’s scared of the baby at first.
Finally he rolled down the window and shit, to try to appeal to the baby. “Get outta here baby!” That’s the funnniest line: “Hey Baby!”
And the baby like, “Yo, nigga I’m selling weed.” And he buy two bags from the baby.
That shit is hilarious, man. Yeah, that’s one of my favorite Chappelle joints.
And then, from Half Baked. “The doctor say I need a Back-i-otomy.” That’s just one of the funniest words. I love saying that shit.
I’m Damien Lemon, that’s one of my favorite Chappelle bits. Peace.
