    Battle for the Best Chappelle Show sketch

    So many worthwhile contenders. Who ya got?

    Grantland

    A Battle for the Best Chappelle's Show Sketch Ever
    Sixty-four sketches. One winner. Ten years later, we determine the champ.
    By Rembert Browne on January 22, 2013

    I'm not sure if it's the best show, or the funniest show, or the smartest show, or even the bravest show, but I do know that Chappelle's Show is hands down, without a close second, the most important show of my life. Since its debut on January 22, 2003, it became one of the few television shows that I watched every week, in real time, the night it aired. There are two reasons for this: (1) It was revolutionary, and (2) it was unacceptable to show up to high school the next day without knowing all the material from the previous night's episode. Social suicide, the kids still call it. And since the show went off the air in 2006, my weekly intake has only slightly decreased.

    There's nothing I'd call myself an "expert" in, but for all intents and purposes, I have a PhD in "Ashy Larry" from the accredited institution of higher learning known as David Khari Webber Chappelle. For that reason, I feel confident in my abilities to carry this out in the most professionally passionate way possible.

    The 11 Rules

    The 64 entries are sketches, not full episodes.
    What's subjective? Inclusion in the field of 64. Feel free to complain.
    What's objective? Seedings, which are based on views on comedycentral.com. No complaints allowed.
    If a long sketch ("Rick James," "The Mad Real World," etc.) is split into multiple clips on comedycentral.com, the views were summed.
    Recurring segments ("Negrodamus," "Ask a Black Guy," "Lil Jon") are treated as separate entries.
    Sketches that had multiple parts airing at different points of the same episode ("Piss on You," "Reparations 2003," "Pixies," etc.) are treated as one sketch, and the views of their separate parts were summed.
    End-of-episode musical performances, while extremely important, are not included in this contest. But watch this. Never forget.
    There is a noticeable bias, by way of views, toward newer clips (Season 3), which is unfortunate because that's Chappelle's worst. But know that that doesn't really matter, because seedings are almost irrelevant.
    A win = what I feel is the best sketch. Nothing more, nothing less.
    If you are disgusted by hyperbole, now would be a good time to leave.
    If you are not well versed in Chappelle, stop now. This isn't amateur hour. Consider this bracketology's FINAL BOSS.

    Close to 1,500 posts on a fan forum devoted to a team other than my own seems a lot... anything much more would seem trollish and at least mildly creepy.

    Rick James and Prince are probably the 2 best ever. They (RJ especially) got played out but they were the 2 funniest to me.

    Wayne Brady should be higher than a 3 seed IMO also.

    Probably my favorite. Seeing him play so against type was amazing.

    I'd throw in Racial Draft and World Series of Dice (Ashy Larry) as runners-up.
