The long saga that has been the Dave Chappelle show over the last few months has come to an end. And it seems that the responsibility that comes with a 50 million dollar contract pretty much blew Dave’s mind. If he were an insurance claim, they would just total him out and cut Comedy Central a check. This just in from Yahoo:
Time to face the facts: Dave Chappelle’s hit Comedy Central series isn’t coming back, says one of its stars. “`Chappelle’s Show’ is over, man. Done,” comic Charlie Murphy told TV Guide. “It took me a long time to be able to say those words, but I can say it pretty easy now, because it’s the truth.”
Chappelle’s sudden “spiritual retreat” to South Africa on the eve of his show’s third season has left the series in limbo since May. About half of a new season had been filmed before Chappelle left, Murphy said.
“I’m disappointed it ended the way it did, but I’m not angry with anybody,” he said. “Chappelle’s Show was like the Tupac of TV shows. It came out, it got everybody’s attention, it was a bright shining star, but it burned out and for some strange reason, it burned out quick.”
So today kind of hurts. I mean, just the other day I find out that sendme20dollarstosavedavechappelleorwhatever.org was apparently a sham, and now this. I mean, golly, who can you even trust in this world? And now, unrelated pictures of Jessica Alba with pigtails.
