See Dave Chappelle As Negan In This Hilarious SNL Spoof Of The Walking Dead

13 November 2016 4:04 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Classic Chappelle's Show character Tyrone Biggums, Chuck Taylor, Clayton Bigsby, Lil Jon and more find themselves at the mercy of Negan and Lucille in this humorous Saturday Night Live spoof of the basic cable ratings juggernaut.  In the early 2000's there wasn't a funnier show on TV than Chappelle's Show but the pressure and media scrutiny led him to walk away from his show at the height of its popularity.  However, over 10 years later, fans who tuned in to SNL last night are all in agreement that Chappelle hasn't lost his touch.  And as a forewarning, unless you were an avid watcher of the Comedy Central variety show, the scene isn't quite as funny unless you've seen previous skits with the aforementioned characters. Negan (Dave Chappelle) readies to take out Tyrone Biggums, Chuck Taylor, Clayton Bigsby, Lil Jon or another memorable Chappelle's Show character. »

A&E’s ‘The Killing Season’ Investigates the Gruesome Truth Behind Hundreds of Unsolved Murders

12 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The remains of five young women were found in the marshes alongside Gilgo Beach, a remote spit of land on the south shore of Long Island, between December 2010 and March 2011. Parts of five more bodies were discovered in the same area the following month. Detectives theorized the murders were the work of a serial killer but turned up no suspects. The cases went cold and stayed cold. Police were accused of obfuscation and corruption, charges that would later prove true.

But there was something else, perhaps, hindering the investigations. The first five victims were identified as escorts, women who advertised their services online. Did police slack on solving the cases because they considered sex workers culpable for their own murders? How do you square a TV crew member, reporting on the search at Gilgo Beach, being overheard to say, “I can’t believe they’re doing all this for a »

Review: 'Atlanta' turns into a lost 'Chappelle's Show' episode with 'B.A.N.'

11 October 2016 7:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Atlanta coming up just as soon as I'd like to be as smart as a baby dolphin... If last week's episode was Donald Glover and company demonstrating that they could find both comic and dramatic value in a previously minor character like Van, then "B.A.N." is the creative team proving that they can make a show that only vaguely even takes place in the Atlanta universe and still make it work. "B.A.N.," named for a fictionalized spin on B.E.T. (with some TV One thrown in for good measure) is essentially a lost episode of Chappelle's Show or Key & Peele, presenting a series of sketches under the umbrella of being part of an episode of the fictional Montague talk show, or the commercials the air during it. (Some of them — the early Dodge ones in particular — are so convincing that I »

On The Tonight Show Monday, Questlove recalled how Jimmy Fallon convinced the Roots to be his house band. 

Comedy writer and Chappelle's Show co-creator Neal Brennan initially suggested the Roots to Fallon, but the comedian was skeptical. Even Questlove admitted that at that point in their careers, the Roots had achieved self-sufficiency and were wary about going in a new direction.

The group entertained Fallon at a Roots gig at UCLA. "I was backstage doing an interview and then when I walked out my dressing room, you [Fallon] had somehow managed »

Chappelle’s Show Co-creator Neal Brennan Discusses the Black White-Supremacist Sketch

3 February 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When the first episode of Chappelle's Show aired in January 2003, audiences were blown away by an audacious Frontline parody about Clayton Bigsby, a blind black man who also happened to be a leader in the white-supremacy movement. Among the many offensive lines: "The message of my books is very simple: niggers, Jews, homo-sexuals, Mexican, A-rabs, and all different sorts of chinks stink, and I hate 'em!" Created by Dave Chappelle and white comedian, actor, and director Neal Brennan, the nine-minute bit was an immediate hit among fans and remains a historically daring sketch. Vulture caught up with Brennan to discuss how the segment was inspired by Dave's blind grandfather, Comedy Central's reaction, and why they didn't think it was any different from their other sketches.What were the origins of the sketch? It was based on Dave's grandfather, who was mixed-race and blind. The day Martin Luther King got shot, »
