Laugh Away the Evening with Dave Chappelle
Dave Chappelle's stand-up is as funny as it gets—he's back from his hiatus, and we couldn't be more stoked to hear his comedy after so many years away from his eponymous show.
Dave Chappelle has become one of the most distinctive voices in comedy with his laser-precise views on race, class and popular culture. A true journeyman who has worked in the entertainment industry since he was 14, Chappelle rose to the height of fame on the strength of his groundbreaking Chappelle's Show and stand-up specials.
Never forsaking his love for stand-up, Chappelle starred in his own HBO one-hour stand-up comedy special, which aired in August 2000. He has appeared on over 40 national programs including numerous appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman
, Late Night with Conan O'Brien
and Politically Incorrect
Dave's rocket to international stardom came in 2003 with the advent of Chappelle's Show, a half-hour blend of sketch, stand-up and musical guests. The program allowed Chappelle to tackle issues of race, politics and celebrity in no-holds-barred style. The compilation of the first series became the best-selling television DVD of all time. The second series of Chappelle's Show catapulted Dave further into the spotlight, turning his signature portrayals of Rick James and Prince into household catch phrases.
