Here’s a great reason to have cable, and an even better reason to set your digital recording device well in advance – on Thursday November 30 at 9, the Sundance channel will premiere Iconoclasts: Dave Chappelle and Maya Angelou.
Oh, they are adorable together. I can’t wait to see two of my absolute favorite celebrities in casual conversation with each other, discussing deep issues, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. If you haven’t had a chance to watch Iconoclasts yet, trust me when I tell you that it’s a remarkable show. I bet this will be their best episode ever. Yay!
I’ve been jonesing for Dave Chappelle this week, in light of the Michael Richards incident. I wish he had a show on HBO right now. You know he would have been quick to come up with a racist Kramer sketch. I was happy to see Paul Mooney tackle it, but I just miss Dave. He’s been a friend in my head ever since Half Baked.
And if you’ve never had the opportunity to see Maya Angelou give a lecture or perform (she drops knowledge, then bursts into song. Phenomenal Woman, that’s her!), you need to treat yourself and watch this. Maya rejuvenates the spirit like nobody else can. She’s a wonder to behold.
