Aries Spears: Chappelle Show Didn’t Make Black People Look Bad

Dave Chappelle will go down as one of the greatest comedians of all time for his stand-ups and the risks he’s taken with controversial sketches on Comedy Central. Although the comedian has made some memorable catchphrases such as: “I’m Rick James b****”, “F*** your couch,” “Blouses,” he’s also made people conscious of social issues during his 2003—2006 run.

In our interview with Aries Spears, he talks about Chappelle’s bold moves and admits that a Chappelle Show-esque show may not be recreated as easily today. Spears told DJ Vlad, he’s tried to pitch the same type of show to major networks, but says the efforts was like “rolling a rock up hill.”
