so last year Dave Chappelle got $50 million to re-up with Comedy Central. the new season was supposed to start in February.
network says: don’t worry, new season (season three) will air late May for Memorial day. Comedy Central then literally anchors their spring schedule around new Chappelle shows.
on Monday, Comedy Central announces the new season has been ‘suspended indefinitely‘.
Clearly things aren’t going well in the Chappelle camp. His spokesman says that there is major pressure on Dave to be extremely funny and carry not just Comedy Central… but black comedy in general. This is pretty much true.
Then, yesterday, a press agent says (out of nowhere) “this has nothing to do with drugs or rehab. Dave Chappelle is fine”
Then about 6 hours ago comes news that Chappelle has flown to South Africa for treatment
My thoughts are the same as yours, folks. Get well Dave, America needs you.
*oh, and for fuck’s sake I have just supplanted four American Idol pieces. For shit’s sake man… is this ALL you are watching, America? This totally underscores our need for Chappelle!Powered by Sidelines
