Dave Chappelle Explains Why He Ended 'Chappelle's Show'

Dave Chappelle just gave an in-depth interview to CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King and he opens up about why he left Chappelle’s Show many years ago.

The 43-year-old comedian, who is premiering a three-part stand-up comedy special on Netflix this week, walked away from the Comedy Central series at the height of its success.

“I was talkin’ to a guy… he basically said to me that comedy is a reconciliation of paradox,” Chappelle said. “And I think that that was a irreconcilable moment for me. That I was in this very successful place, but the emotional content of it didn’t feel anything like what I imagined success should feel like. It just didn’t feel right.”

“But Chappelle’s Show’s like breakin’ up with a girl and you still like her. But in your mind you’re like, ‘That b**** is crazy. I’m not goin’ back,’” he added.

Madonna's Star-Studded Raising Malawi Fundraiser Raises Over $7.5 Million!

Madonna‘s Raising Malawi foundation fundraiser during Art Basel over the weekend in Miami was a major success, raising over 7.5 million dollars.

The event was attended by Adriana Lima, Sean Penn, James Corden (who acted as Master of Ceremonies), Sean Penn, Chris Rock, Karolina Kurkova, Paris Hilton, Dave Chappelle, Alex Rodriguez, designer Jeremy Scott, model Jasmine Sanders, Madonna‘s manager Guy Oseary, magician David Blaine, reality star Bethenny Frankel, and more.

The event money raised is helping to construct Malawi’s first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit. The facility is going to be named Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, after Madonna‘s adopted daughter Mercy James, 10, who she adopted from Malawi in 2009. Madonna also adopted David Banda, 11, from the country in Africa.

There are only four pediatric surgeons in Malawi, so this hospital is life-changing.

Congrats to Madonna on the amazing efforts!
