Dave Chappelle won his second Emmy in three years in the Outstanding Variety Special category for his stand-up Netflix special, “Dave Chappelle: Sticks and Stones,” and his acceptance speech was classic.
Dave starts out in rare form as he states, “Boy!… Comes as a complete surprise!”
He then immediately goes in on the critics who had negative things to say about his stand-up special, and he tells them to “Shut the f**k up forever!”
Dave gives props to Stan Lathan and lets the academy know that Stan’s Emmy was long overdue.
He also shouts out his fellow comedians that were nominated for the award and a special thank you to his wife, Elaine Chappelle, for enduring the pains of “living with the greatest comedian ever” for the past 25 years.
Dave seems to be a little faded during his acceptance speech, which often makes for a good time.
