The Laugh Button reports that Dave Chappelle has begun doing stand-up shows again in his home city in Ohio. The shows are for only 100 people, and no personal phones or cameras are allowed inside, but for at least one of the stand-up sessions, there was a professional camera present to film it all. And now, just yesterday, Netflix released a 27-minute recording of a recent Chappelle show, titled 8:46.

During this set, Chappelle talked about George Floyd and the movement of protests.

"I can't get that number out of my head, because it was my time of birth on my birth certificate," Chappelle said. "I was born at 8:46 in the morning, and they killed this n**ga in 8 minutes and 46 seconds."

The set is a chance for Chappelle to get back into preforming and also voice his opinions during this time. He used his time to efficiently deliver his feelings and did not hold back when it came to criticizing Candace Owens and Laura Ingraham. He also addressed Kobe Bryant's death, which happened to occur on the same day that Chappelle won one of his three Grammy Awards.

Hopes for more shows by Dave Chappelle are high.
