Dave Chappelle - From Cruel and Insensitive to Brilliant and Thought Provoking

Dave Chappelle's How Old is 15 Really? starts off irreverent and gets downright cruel from there. But wait for it, he delivers a surprisingly poignant bit of commentary by the end:

This video is as relevant today as it was when it was posted 9 years ago. And while we may be living in the golden age of comedy-as-education-vehicle, it's still impressive when this is done right.

Put another way: want to change the world? Use what got. And as Chapelle shows us, if you've got jokes, that will do nicely.
