DESCRIPTION:
(from Comedy Central's web site) From its premiere in January 2003, Chappelle's Show was a cultural phenomenon. With characters like blind white supremacist Clayton Bigsby (who is not aware that he is black) and crack addict Tyrone Biggums, parodies like "the Mad Real World" and R. Kelly's "Piss on You" video and musical guests like Kanye West and Common, Chappelle's Show became one of Comedy Central's most popular shows ever. By the second season Chappelle's Show was sealed as as one of the most influential sketch shows in TV history. Dave Chappelle's portrayals of Rick James and Prince in "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories," parodies of Lil' Jon and Samuel L. Jackson, and sketches like "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong," "The Time Haters," and a skit starring an against-type Wayne Brady made Chappelle's Show the stuff of legend. Chappelle's Show helped launch the careers of comedians like Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings, who went on to host the Lost Episodes of Chappelle's Show after Dave Chappelle decided to stop production on the third season. With sketches parodying show business, MTV Cribs, and Tupac's more current lyrics, Dave proved himself to be as witty and insightful as ever, and continues to be a hero to the comedians and fans who still speak reverently about his show's influence on recent American pop culture.
