Dave Chapplle grew up in Washington, D.C. but honed his comedy act in the tough clubs of New York. His routines often feature wild impressions and reverse racial stereotypes. His brand of biting social commentary and hilarious impressions follow in the tradition of Richard Pryor but with updated content and a modern approach.
In 2003, Dave Chappelle debuted his own weekly television show on Comedy Central, Chappelle's Show. The show parodies many aspects of American culture, including racial stereotypes and slurs, including Dave Chappelle's African-American heritage. This, combined with his pointed social and political commentary, quickly helped garner the show critical and commercial success. By the end of the second season, it was one of the highest-rated shows on basic cable and second only to South Park on Comedy Central. Additionally, the DVD set of the first season became the best-selling DVD of a television show to date. Due to the show's popularity, Comedy Central's parent company Viacom reportedly offered Dave Chappelle a $55 million contract (giving Chappelle a share of DVD sales) to continue production of Chappelle's Show for two more years while allowing him to do side projects. In 2005, however, he stepped down from the show.
In 2004, Dave Chappelle was the subject of the Michel Gondry-directed documentary "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" which chronicles a Dave Chappelle-hosted event, in September of that year, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. The highlight of the event was the reunion of popular '90s rap group The Fugees. Dave Chappelle toured several cities in February and March 2006 to promote the film under the moniker "Block Party All-Stars featuring Dave Chappelle". The movie was released on March 3, 2006.
Later in 2006, Dave Chappelle performed at various sold out shows across the country as well as embarking on a month-long tour in August.
