Chappelle Canceled?
27 April 2004 | by (Indy) – See all my reviews

It's a good thing Comedy Central didn't listen to "Virginia's" comments in this person's hopes of having the Chappelle Show canceled. Dave is the funniest thing on tv hands down. Comedy Central knows it and apparently everyone but one user on here knows it too. The Charlie Murphy episodes are brilliant. However, the 'Wayne Brady' skit was one of the most funniest skits I've ever seen in my lifetime. I got to work the next day and the entire department was quoting from it. It's been a while for a comedy show to come along and have such an impact on 'all of us'. I'm looking forward to the third season. Dave, Keep up the good work.
