Critic Reviews for Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (11)

  • Sticks and Stones registers as a temper tantrum, the product of a man who wants it all -- money, fame, influence -- without much having to answer to anyone.

  • Sticks & Stones exists as a defiant design to intentionally offend large swaths of the audience Chappelle deems too thin-skinned and easily outraged.. while serving up simple, low-bar yucks to anyone yearning for validation of their anti-P.C. stance.

  • Like dropping in on a rascally uncle who doesn't know, or doesn't care, how much he's disappointing you.

  • There were moments in this special that I can get behind, but there were others that I'm shocked that Netflix gave the go-ahead to.

  • [O]verall, I found the special funny, entertaining, and yes... very edgy. But more importantly, I felt like in the end, the world of comedy benefited from it.
