Comedian Dave Chappelle takes his street-smart, thought-provoking and hilarious brand of comedy to a whole new level in this half-hour sketch comedy and variety show.
Dave's unique point-of-view on the world provides a comedic and sometimes defiant look at American culture, including music, movies, television, advertising, current events and everyday life situations.
The sketches in Chappelle's Show are complemented by segments of Chappelle's stand-up comedy, performed in front of a studio audience. A little bit of stand-up and a whole lot of hellacious sketch, Chappelle's Show brings the funk and the noise.
Each episode also features a special musical guest in an informal, "anything goes" conversation and performance, offering a one-of-a-kind perspective on some of the music industry's biggest stars.
