Dave Chappelle did another stand-up, but this time he was more focused on everything that is currently happening in the US. Race relations, police brutality, and protest were the main topics he covered during his performance, which had a different tone and message, unlike most of his shows. On top of that, Chappelle also talked about Kobe Bryant's death and how it left a significant impact on him still to this day.

His entire performance that night was dedicated to race relations in the sense of sharing stores tragical in a similar way to the one of George Floyd. Chappelle continued explaining that Bryant saved the country the night when he scored 60 points in his last NBA game. At the same time, when that was happening, Houston was going through a lot of problems during a police shooting that killed nine officers, and several other people were injured. Chappelle himself admits he was more involved in the game, like many other people. If it were different, he believes all the protests and potential problems could have started back then.

"The night, those nine police officers were killed felt like the end of the world. And the only reason it wasn't the end of the world, in my opinion, was at the very same time that was happening Kobe Bryant was playing his last game as an LA Laker. And as scary as all that shit was, I kept flipping back as Kobe was dropping 60. And he did. Oh, and he did. I saw him dribbling and saving this goddamn country from itself."

Chappelle remembers the day Kobe Bryant died well because, on that same day, he was supposed to receive a Grammy. He was so heartbroken he decided not to show up because numbers 8 and 24, which were the two jersey numbers Kobe wore throughout his career, are the dates for Chappelle's birthday.

"I loved Kobe Bryant. Died the day I won a Grammy, he died. That's why I didn't show up at the Grammy's because Kobe died. They had both of his f*ckin' jersey numbers hanging up. Eight. Twenty-four. That's my birthday. I cried like a baby."
