The Realest Quote He Ever Spoke: Dave Chappelle Visits 'Letterman' And Speaks Openly About Why He Walked Away From His Show & $50M [Video]
Its been seven years since funny man Dave Chapelle walked walked away from it all. Chappelle had the
world on a string. A critically acclaimed show that
was funny as sh*t, booming ratings, money in the bank,
a family....and did I mention a $50 M check for
a NEW season of his comedy sketch show at the time.
The world was over run with speculation as to why a comedian who had obviously struck gold would simply walk away. The most creative reason people could come up with, of course is that Chappelle had simply lost his mind. Well earlier this week on the famed 'Letterman Show', a very level-headed Dave talked very candidly on what led to his abrupt departure.
