Dave Chappelle Just Shared Another Truly Amazing Prince Story

Dave Chappelle Just Shared Another Truly Amazing Prince Story

Before Chappelle's two new stand-up specials arrive on Netflix on Tuesday, the comedian stopped by Monday's CBS This Morning, where he Chappelle joked about the conflicted relationship he has with his former Comedy Central hit Chappelle's Show.

I'm a fan of their show.

Chappelle's Show was like breaking up with a girl and you still like her, but in your mind you're like "That bitch is insane". But in your mind you're like, "That b**** is insane. I'm not goin' back, '" Chappelle said, laughing to himself.

Dave Chappelle is in the midst of promoting his two upcoming comedy specials that will release tomorrow (March 21), and as a result we have more interviews with the storied comedian than we know what to do with.

Chappelle used a story from a nature show he'd recently watched as an analogy for escaping the traps of fame.

"It's a hard thing to talk about", Chappelle told NYT. "In that analogy, I felt like the baboon, but I was smart enough to let go of the salt".

Elsewhere in the interview, Chappelle discusses how his life has changed for the better since leaving "Chappelle's Show", what living in a small town means to him, what he hopes to do with his life, and more. Peep additional highlights from his CBS This Morning chat here. "I found a way that - to do what I liked to do and avoid some of the parts of it that I was uncomfortable with", he said. Like, man, you know, it's like "Purple Rain" was out.

"I've been all over the country, touring all my life. It wasn't like I brushed past them like 'I don't want to hear it, ' I had time to stop like 'You do?' It was just like the way that I engaged with the world was different". "But I never saw anything", Dave said. I fought very hard. Chappelle affirmed that he was "a fan" of the sketch series, but later added that his feelings remain mixed: "When I see Key & Peele, and I see they're doing the format that I created, and at the end of the show it says 'created by Key & Peele, ' that hurts my feelings".

"Fame, yeah, but not so much that I get on a plane to Africa", he said.
