Trevor Noah Stole Dave Chappelle Joke?



Trevor Noah is being accused of stealing jokes after his stand-up show at Politicon in Los Angeles bear similarity to Dave Chappelle's 1998 HBO special.


According to THR, During his 20-minute stand-up set on Saturday, Noah performed a routine in which he referred to himself as a "racism connoisseur" who can discern among degrees of racism, such as the "charming racism" of Kentucky. The same "racism connoisseur" joke Dave Chappelle made in 1998.

THR also said Noah did the same routine earlier this summer in Huntington, New York, and another in L.A.

Noah and his team are yet to comment on the allegations.



Check out the transcripts of both routines below and tells us what you think.

Noah (2015): "Before I came to America, I thought I knew all kinds of racism. I've always considered myself something of a racism connoisseur. I appreciate the finer racism. Not to say I appreciate all racism, but a finer racism. Before I came here, blatant racism was my favorite. Blatant racism, where you know exactly where you stand, often perpetrated by old people, which I have always appreciated. They'll just tell it to you like it is. 'This is what I think about you!' Yeah, you're going to die soon. ... Charming racism in America changed my life. I discovered it in a place called Lexington, Kentucky. Probably one of the most wonderful places I've ever been — charming, friendly people. Racism with a smile and a tip of the hat. ... I was walking through the streets, a man walked up to me, didn't know me from a bar of soap, came straight up to me and looked me dead in the eye, and he was like, 'Good afternoon, n—er.' 'Good afternoon.' I've never seen racism with a smile. I didn't know what to do. He just said it like it was a fact. As if I fought him, he would have been like, 'What, didn't you know?' "



Chappelle (1998): "Traveling has made me a racism connoisseur, if you will. You know, it's different region to region. Anyone ever been down South? So you guys know what I'm talking about. The racism down there is just f—ing (bon appetit gesture) — it's perfect. Stewed to a perfection. It's conformable. It's out in the open. There are no secrets in Mississippi. Everybody knows the deal. 'Morning, n—er!' 'Morning, sir!' Not up here. Here in the big cities, it's a secret. And we should be like them. We should keep our shit out in the open and vent a little — I mean with limits. You don't want to say whatever comes to your mind, that might be a little much. White dude be walking down the street minding his business and a brother walk up to him: 'Hello, you white oppressor, you slave-master rapist of Africa.' 'Why hello, my big-lips, spear-chucking friend.' "
