“Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” is documentery of him putting together this block party. It follows Dave Chapelle across the country giving out tickets, meeting the neighborhood, and setting up his all-star free block party in New York.
This film is part sketch comedy, party musical concert, and all brilliance; Dave Chapelle puts together one of the best films of 2005. It’s Dave being Dave and giving back to the community. It has the funny, brilliance, comedy found on his show but in every day life meeting everyday people.
He put together some of the best musicians of the hip-hop community; he even got ‘The Fugees’ to reunite after seven years, to perform some of their hits. Even though, you weren’t there you still fill the vibe and you realize just how powerful it must have been to be there live. It features some of the best music and it makes you wish that you were actually there.
DC’s Block Party is right up there with best comedy concert DVD. I want to say thank you to Dave Chapelle for film this journey. It was a experience that I am glad I had and wished that I could have been there live. I can say nobody throws a block party like Dave Chapelle. The party was truly over there.
I give it 5/5 Gs.
