Dave Chappelle On ‘Letterman.’ Watch Now!

blame it on Meka June 11, 2014

For the first time in over five years, the reclusive comedian made an appearance on a late-night television show, stopping by David Letterman’s couch to chat it up about his upcoming residency at Radio City Music Hall beginning next week (I copped tickets back in April. Those joints sold out quicker than Jordan drops), extending it so that he can have the likes of Busta Rhymes, Nas, The Roots, DJ Premier and others perform, and – of course – his infamous leaving of his own television show and subsequent sabbatical from comedy.

    Dave Chappelle is the man, and it’s hilarious how buff he’s gotten during his little sabbatical. He went from looking like Urkel to looking like Terry Crews

    • bc

      could’ve swore you said Charlie Murphy and not Terry Crews lol

      • leutrim

        I wrote Charlie Murphy before, then edited it haha

  • Conspiracy man

    Idk what it is about this interview but it makes me feel like this was all a set up from the beginning. He leaves or takes a “hiatus” as he explains it, while he’s at his peak for that time period with that generation of people. Before he becomes irrelevant and prostitutes himself to a corporation that’ll just overexpose him into irrelevancy or like kanye west puts it box him in creatively. And come up with a crazy story that you know will stay in people’s minds for a long time like David letterman demonstrated by reciting step by step how everything went down which was exactly how I remembered it happening. Come back 7 years later opening up for Nas at a 20th anniversary concert for one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time with a full orchestra (which like meka said out sold out quick which obviously would happen. Dave knows how to play the game stay relevant longer cause if your from my generation and you got kids now if Dave chappellle makes a come back your gunna make sure your kid knows who that is and his history. Like he said there’s no lifestyle change between $10 mil and $40mil so before you dry out and fade away cash In and when that runs low make a brief come back he’ll prolly make more money off a comeback tour then he would have if he stayed in the game.

      You feel like 7 years ago, Dave told himself he would make a comeback tour and get way more rich from it? Do you know how far you have to reach for that theory?

    except I just went to the link in this article, and tickets are NOT sold out. ie: Sec 3RDMZ5
    Row E, Seats 513 – $93 – nice try – but there’s not a single night that’s sold out.
