'Chappelle's Show' is back... sort of

143124__dchappelle01_lBetter late than never: Variety reports that Comedy Central plans to broadcast the yet-unseen sketches taped for the abortive third season of Chappelle’s Show. Look for the unseen Chappelle bits, including spoofs of Cribs and Super Size Me, to show up on Motherload, the broadband area on Comedy Central’s website, before they appear on TV. No word on when next year the sketches will air, or how much usable material Chappelle taped before he bolted, but beggars can’t be choosers.

You haven’t yet grown disenchanted with disappearing Dave, have you, PopWatchers? Or do you still eagerly await Chappelle’s unfinished symphony?

    Chappelle’s story is the epitome of “be careful what you wish for”. He asks for a cable channel raw enough to allow him to do some riske material and got it. Then he asked for more viewers, and got them too. He asked for more fans and fame, he became the biggest star of 2004. He asked for millions, then got that too. So after he got everything he wanted, something went wrong. Did it come too easily for a man who had struggled so hard for years previous? I am still hoping that Chappelle will someday give us insight on how he single handedly decided to step out of fame’s limelight just as his career was reaching the pinnacle of success. I really enjoyed Chappelle’s work before, but now am very curious about this elusive man himself. Where are you Dave Chappelle? Charlie Murphy and company need to get you to come back from the farm in Ohio and back into our living rooms…BYOTCH!

    Well I gotta say … fame is a monster that eats many people alive. We see that every day – people who are so driven by their careers that they lose their humanity and become inflated charicatures who memorize their own PR and lose all sense of perspective. I miss Dave’s show, but I don’t need him to continue for my sake at the expense of his self respect, his privacy, and his humanity.
    I would like to read a book or article written by him, though, about the realities of fame from the inside. We see, especially in reality shows, the ways in which people will eagerly make mornonic laughingstocks of themselves just to get their desperate fifteen minutes. Fame is a monster that eats its young and Dave Chapelle mooned it and walked away. I support him and his unusual response to explosive and overwhelming success – he’s a brave and unique man, not to mention a fabulous comedian.
    But of course I miss Charlie Murphy and Ashy Larry and the Hollahollaholla Man!!!!
