Don’t Call it a Comeback

According to Dave Chappelle, he’s just ‘seven years late for work’ on ‘Chappelle’s Show’.

The comedian appeared on Late Night Tuesday and spoke candidly with David Letterman about his infamous departure from Hollywood in 2005, when he walked away from a deal reportedly worth $50 million and his hit Comedy Central series Chappelle’s Show midway through its third season.

His withdrawal is an enigma that continues to be a lively topic of discussion at the mere mention of his name. Many would say his reasons for leaving (creative control, feeling exploited, and wanting an improved working environment) were justifiable, but others say he was just plain “crazy” to walk away from such a fruitful offer.Upon leaving the show, Chappelle wound up in Africa for two weeks, sparking rumors as to why that include drug abuse, writer’s block, and a mental breakdown.

When asked about his shocking departure from the hit show, Chappelle amused Letterman stating, “Technically, I never quit. I’m seven years late for work,” he joked. Chappelle’s appearance was to promote his Radio City Stand-Up Tour on June 18th to 26th.
