Synopsis: Dave Chappelle addresses George Floyd’s death and racial injustice in a stand-up special filmed in Ohio. The recording was made at the private event “Dave Chappelle & Friends: A Talk with Punchlines” held outdoors on June 6, 2020 at the Wirrig Pavilion in Yellow Springs, Ohio, where an audience of roughly 100 observed social distancing rules and wore masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The event was entitled 8:46 in reference to the eight minutes and 46 seconds that police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the neck of George Floyd, a black man, killing him, and Chappelle’s time of birth on his birth certificate, being born on 8:46 AM.
