    More than ten years after going off the air, Chappelle's Show is still eminently watchable, quotable, and hilarious. But why did Dave Chappelle resonate in the first place? And why, after all these years, do we still need him more than ever?

    Dave Chappelle also heavily contributed to music. If it wasn't for him having all those neosoul and hip hop acts in his show, Badu, Talib, and Kanye would've had a much harder time getting work.

    Dave Chappelle was killing racism thats why they wanted him to either tone it the fuck off or get lost. Dave is the last of a dying breed.....ask yourself why NO ONE in hollywood speaks out about real shit and if they do, they either Die or get their character assassinated. Fact. Ted Gunderson former FBI chief uncovered a ring of pedophiles and satan worship in hollywood... yal better wakeup...or there wont be anyone left to speak out..

    His 1st cousin even admitted that's not him bc they were click tight a1 day1 and he went to a meeting about getting the show back under his conditions but she believes they took him underground cloned him and killed the legendary original we all knew and loved. R.I.P to a Legend.
    The truth Scares most of us wherefore we go into denial until we see for ourselves or do our own research. Sometimes even if we do know the facts we still don't want to believe it bc of how fucked up the world can be.
    Wake up call people. Gotta realize that what you see on the news ain't always gonna be true. especially for celebrities. If you go into the game with good intentions and a good heart and try to save humanity they will wipe you off the map and/or replace you with a clone/look alike who's willing to do whatever for the money even if it means lowering your standards/morals. Sad but true.

    Honestly when I came to America, the first show I watched was Chapelle's show, I understood great terminology such as : mark ass, mark ass trick, skit scag, scally-wag, john, john ass trickster, and so on, in all seriousness , an absolute master at ridiculing the very foundations of the racial and social issues in America, a true genius, in disguise... the greatest to ever do it without a doubt in my mind ( keep in mind i say this despite gorge Carlin, kinison, Pryor) and yet I believe he surpasses them all...

    while Dave Chappelle is known to be a great comedian, his audience sucked and still does.
    All they did and still do sometimes is care about Rick James jokes and the occasional Tyrone Biggums, but it appears
    that people don't really appreciate Chappelle's comedy for what it really is: a commentary on American social issues.
    His audiency simply couldn't catch up to the core of his comedic stories, as it is always the case.

    He knew when to get off that train. where as he was funny insightful there were also negative influences that wanted him to reinforce some truly stereotypical attitudes. he understood this and didn't drink the koolaide, so to speak.
    Bravo and bless him.

    I think maybe the reason Chappelle hasn't done much since "Chappelle's Show" is that it's such a tough act to follow. This reminds me of how long it took Quentin Tarantino to make another movie after PULP FICTION (1994).

    Dave chapelle left the Hollywood scene because he didn't want to sell his soul for 10mill. his family and name is more important to him. just like how SNL tried to get him to talk shit about trump, he instead talked about how we needed to come together and SNL cast were rolling their eyes the whole time. pathetic Hollywood attempt to smear trump like they always do since SNL isnt funny nor creative anymore.

    What an interesting video. The PC culture that would never tolerate his humor today based on their agendas wish that he would come back? Liberals ruined any sort of casual fun blending of ethnicities and decided to focus on our differences.....because equality right? Things like this were the perfect medium to bring people together. Humor that crossed all races and situations. He left the show for his own reasons and probably would of come back if not for this ridiculous b.s. about races...he left because he was worried he was reinforcing stereotypes rather than poking fun at them. He was too ahead of his time and now thanks to this snowflake madness you better believe the genius, fun, and influence of people like Dave Chappelle are long gone. It is a sad state our world is in now...this is why we cannot have nice things....

    This new dude they call Dave Chappelle aint got it. He aint got the look, the voice, the charisma or the talent from what I've seen so far. He's nothing like authentic Dave who not only cracked jokes but used his time on stage as teachable moments. This new dude just wants to be on and in. Yall heard what he said about Flint Michigan. That shit wasn't funny and that wasn't the Dave Chappelle I remember. ijs
