Did You Know?


Dave Chappelle left the show abruptly during filming of the third season. He later stated in interviews that he never intended to make a third season but he felt pressured by Comedy Central and his co-workers to continue. Comedy Central pulled the show from its 2005 schedule and decided to shelve the completed sketches in hopes that Chappelle would return to finish the season. Chappelle stated in interviews that if Comedy Central aired the episodes he would definitely not return to the show. After negotiations with Chappelle stalled, Comedy Central decided to repackage some of the completed sketches and air them in 2006. Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings took over the hosting duties.

31 July 2004 | by (South Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I know I've already commented on this show but I just feel like commenting on it again.

I keep thinking but the writing for this show is genius!

The cast is talented (especially Dave!) Dave can do an impression of (I'm sure) any celebrity!

Donnel Rawlings is talented, Mooney is talented, Charlie Murphy is talented.

If you haven't seen Chappelle's Show you don't know what you're missing out on!

It is probably one of the best sketch comedy shows ever.

It would be a real shame if Dave finally decided not to come back for a 3rd season...

The show has everything , though...great cast, great sketches, great guests, great musical guests!

If you haven't seen the show then damn! Get out there and watch it!!!
