Controversial comedian Dave Chappelle has had a long and extremely successful career. Chappelle first rose to fame through his stand-up comedy routines and film appearances, eventually becoming creator and star of the mega hit Chappelle’s Show on Comedy Central. Chappelle departed from Chappelle’s Show in a highly public fashion, then disappeared from the entertainment industry for a number of years. Since then Chappelle has made a comeback, releasing new stand-up comedy specials through Netflix, though some of the material in said specials have found him in hot water.
