Anyone know WTF ever happened to him? Where the hell is he? He just completely disappeared. It's a shame he's not doing crap.

what happened

basically, he had a breakdown, frustrated at the fact that his work was being "misunderstood" by his fans. i'm not sure if they mention it in that article above (i'm too lazy to re-read it) but he realized this when he was filming a skit for season 3 (the one where every ethnic person has a little ethnic conscious person on their shoulder giving stereotypical advice) and that while filming, a white camera man was the person laughing hardest on the set while chappelle was acting in black-face.

^yep

he's back to doing stand-up, but he stays away from comedy central, they screwed him over.

basically he told them that if they don't release the unfinished season 3 on DVD that he would eventually come back to work for them. but comedy central went behind his back, released season 3 and now dave chappelle HATES comedy central.

Well I can't understand why it's just gotta' be Comedy Central. Can you honestly tell me nobody else on tv would give this guy a shot? This guy is pure genius. He will make anyone money.

he made bloc party AFTER the chappelle show/comedy central fiasco, so he still is doing things. iono, i guess he'd rather keep things on the DL for now. it's too bad though, him being out is a big loss to the whole comedy scene. hopefully he decides to take his work back to the mainstream.

I know that, but that doesn't exactly mean 'so he still is doing things', Block Party was 2005!! 4 Motha Effin' YEARS!! I just miss the guy badly, tis all.

seriously, his material is great

i've seriously watched the chappelle show season 1 & 2 DVDs and his standup DVDs (for what it's worth and killing them softly) hundreds of times since he's been "off air."

He doesn't like all the fame. He's just chillin at his farm in Ohio these days. He prefers not to do anything.

If I could meet anyone in the world, I would meet Dave. My hero.

yeah i heard that one of his record breaking standups was here in LA at the laugh factory.

man how lucky were those audience members to be paying for a half an hour standup and instead get 6 hour show

He had the record, then it was broken by Dane Cook (which was probably crap), then Dave broke that record.

I remember he did a show up in UC Davis after his whole "breakdown". I couldn't go though. Tickets sold out in minutes.
