It is not very often that we actually see Dave Chappelle actually talk to the media, but for the first time in years he has chosen to do so.
In a chat with WILD 94.9 FM (which you can see part of below), the former Comedy Central comedian largely stays away from some of his famous Dave Chappelle quotes — and focuses instead on some of the recent controversy that recently dominated the headlines. Chappelle actually gives a pretty great explanation for why he stopped telling jokes during a charity performance in Florida for the Seminole Indians, and also talks a bit about why he has decided to avoid the traditional celebrity lifestyle by living in Ohio rather than New York or Los Angeles.
There were some reports recently that Chappelle was considering a return to traditional entertainment via a web series, but that talk turned out to be false.
What do you make of some of Dave’s comments here?
