Great Standup From Dave.

"I ordered this on PPV sometime last fall. I was hoping they would release it on dvd sometime soon and here it is. This go right up there with his "Killin' Them Softly" dvd well worth the money, Dave is one of the best comedians out there. So, if you've not seen this yet and are a big fan of his do yourself a favor and order or buy this when it's released."
Simply the Best - Pure Standup

"If you're like me, and enjoy the Chapelle Show, you'll find that this program is a little different: no clips, just a pure standup comedy programm. And Dave is killing here. He takes on topics like where AIDS came from and different drinks with black and white people. Calls the greenback "baseball cards with slave owners on them". Just great comedy with a clear political undertone.
In this context he discusses the wavering standpoint of society towards fifteen year olds.
Wunderful, meaningful, inspiring, just plain funny!
So go get this - And get "Killin' them softly" too!"
Not His Best Work!

"I'am a Dave Chappelle fan but I did not find this stand-up routine all that hilarious. There were some funny moments but not nearly the amount of laughs I had from his TV show and his previous stand-up DVD Killin Them Softly.
He seemed to take jokes too far in hopes that it would get funnier. They didn't. I would only encourage you to get this DVD if you are a HUGE Chappelle fan and want to see some more of his work but be prepared.
I still like Dave Chappelle's comedy, but this DVD is not his best work."
"For What It's Worth" Review
Crazy Jim | Massachusetts | 08/29/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Not nearly as good as his previous special, "Killing Them Softly", Dave Chappelle's new cable stand-up special may have been destined to come off feeling mediocre in comparison. After a star-making second season of his hit comedy series, "Chappelle's Show", Dave seems less hungry on the second go round. Touching such subject matter as fame, intercourse with monkeys, and famous black celebrity trials, "For What It's Worth" is a hardly a failure in the humor department but it just isn't the home run that "Softly" was. It's a good time nonetheless."
