Clayton Bigsby, The Player Haters Ball, Tyrone Biggums and The Racial Draft. True fans know these are all classic skits from one of the best comedy shows of all time. Chappelle’s Show defined a generation in the early 2000s when Dave Chappelle was on top of his game.
The art of stand-up comedy is currently in a bit of a renaissance. In the 80s and 90s, comics such as Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler would frequently make on-stage appearances and have thousands of fans falling out of their seats.
Comedy shows are back and seem to be thriving once again. Thanks to Jim Gaffigan, Joe Rogan and Kevin Hart, the genre has survived losing some of its biggest stars.
Some of that decline was credited to the disappearance of Dave Chappelle. While on top of the comedy world, he chose to work on himself rather than comedy. He turned down a massive contract from Comedy Central and instead ventured to South Africa. Escaping the industry that swallowed him up and threatened his creativity, Chappelle was in need of soul searching.
Slowly but surely Chappelle has come back in to the spotlight. Much more reserved than when in his prime, but he might be twice as funny. His new perspective on life adds more to his comedy routine. Also, with his career on a clear path once again he seems at peace on stage.
Dave Chappelle recently hosted Saturday Night Live, which garnered rave reviews. Since then there has been news of a Netflix special and a run of stand up comedy shows throughout the state of Texas.
