some guy at work was joking around with me and asked, "what about your balls?" to which i responded, "they're smooth as eggs." he asked me what that is from because he knew it from somewhere - it was from a chappelle stand-up bit. i got thinking about dave and how damn funny he is. l.s.d. thinks i'm nuts because i will watch youtubes all day of anything with him in it. just the other night, when i thought i had seen everything, i found some clips of him on the daily show, and i was thrilled. i think pound-for-pound, he is the funniest man alive, and i just wish he would work again.
think about how many times you come across someone quoting something of his. can you get through a day or two without that happening? not a chance. people quote stuff from seinfeld and simpsons all the time, but those shows have over 10 seasons; amazingly, chappelle's show was only 2 seasons.
i miss him like i miss friends i haven't seen in a while. yup. that sounds creepy for sure. just seeing it typed, yeah . . . but i must admit that part of why i laugh so much is because he is so damn likeable. when he starts laughing, you join in.
i know he loves getting out of the spotlight and raising his family, but you just know a creative genius type like that has loads of terrific ideas swimming around in that brain of his, just dying to get out and see the light of day. until then, i guess i'll just keep watching old clips of him on conan, and oprah, and behind the actors studio, and . . .
