After more than a decade flying mostly under the radar, comedian Dave Chappelle is back with a new Netflix comedy special that debuted Tuesday. 

He picked the perfect time to make a comeback. Donald Trump’s America is a place so frighteningly chaotic that sometimes the most rebellious thing you can do is laugh at it.

Chappelle’s comedy is the kind of smart, incisive, dark humor that’s most useful when the political tide is running against it. He came to prominence in the early 2000s, when George W. Bush was president and the country’s racial justice agenda seemed to stop at the symbolically fruitless task of burying the “n-word.” His hit comedy program, Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show, poked fun at the racial pageantry of the United States, giving viewers countless classic sketches: the black white supremacist, Clayton Bigsby; the Niggar family; and the “Racial Draft,” to name just a few.
