Personal Quote:

[on Dave Chappelle] Dave's a lot like Richard [Pryor]. He's an artist first, everything else is second. They offered him $50 million, but the money didn't mean anything. Dave knew money was an illusion. You can't take it with you. You've never seen a Brink's truck following a hearse, and you never will. See more »

Trivia:

Stand up comic with a deep, rich voice. His act focuses mainly on race and social issues. See more »
