Dave Chappelle, the American stand-up comedian and TV personality from Washington, D.C. He made his name on the stand up circuit playing live shows before appearing in movies like Mel Brook's Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and the Nutty Professor with Eddie Murphy. Chappelle co-wrote and starred in 1998's stoner cult hit Half Baked, with Jim Breuer from Saturday Night Live. Later on, he reached his widest audience with The Chappelle Show, which aired from 2004 to 2006. The first two seasons were a smash hit, while the third still featured some hilarious and memorable sketches, but lost its charm due to Dave's disappearance due to burnout and loss of creative control. The third season was later aired with Chappelle Show regulars Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings presenting the "Lost Episodes.'' After taking an extended break, Dave has returned to the stand up game and can be seen on tour across North America. He has had gigs including a nine-day "residency" at New York's Radio City Music Hall featuring guest performances by the likes of Nas, Busta Rhymes, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and others.
