    Dave Chappelle in a mental institution

    Here's the story: not much to read but here it is
    and one more source

    I never wouldve guessed funny man Dave Chappelle would be heading to a psychiatrich ward. He just didnt seem the type of guy to be having serious problems. Oh well, I spose it can happen to just about anyone.

    It's sad though that he might lose his contract deal and stuff. I was really looking forward to seeing some new episodes, not just the same re-runs over and over.

    Maybe the guy is just stressed out. Working hard and being in the public eye all the time can easily do that to someone. Its a sign of the times I guess. I hope its nothing serious.

    Guess we cant all be writing well thought through, on topic posts like "Bring me a shrubbery!" and "Whaaaaaaaaaaa?"

    Considering that the first one was in a SPAM THREAD and I don't ever recall typing the second, maybe you should just go away.

    ...It was in a topic without any clearcut discussion. So your arguement doesn't hold any water.

    Well this topic does have a clearcut discussion and I asked who that Dave guy is and you home in with a useless post accusing me of spamming (as if a post that contains nothing on the topic, just a reference to spam isnt itself spam) and now we are breaking down an entire thread because of it.

    And guess what. We all know how this story goes. I wont stop replying to you as long as you claim that my post was spam and you wont stop posting period til you have the last word and it all ends when Freet deletes all our posts exept the one I made asking who Dave was.

    For the sake of anyone who doesn't know who Dave Chappelle is (me included), and in a half hearted attempt to defuse the conversational bomb going on, read this.

    Thanks.

    I don't think he'd be checking into a mental health facility for drugs. He had a huge deal with Comedy Central on the order of $50 million, maybe the pressure got to him.

    Yeah I didn't think he was into drugs. I'd heard he quit pot too. My girlfriend gave me the bad info. ;) Season 1 of his show is the highest selling Tv show DVD. That's pretty amazing considering the huge success of the Family Guy DVDs.

    I would have said "Dave who?" also. I am still not sure who he is after looking at the links. Never seen him before. Oh well.

    He's a comedian that has a show on Comedy Central titled rightly enough "The Chappelle Show" that has become hugely successful. He's also starred, co-starred, or at least been a part of many movies. One of the most well-known is Half Baked. And if you havent seen Half Baked and still dont know who I'm talking of, I suggest you rent it or at least DL it. Good stuff :thumbsup:

    Wipe out

    Next to psychiatrists, comedians have one of the highest rates for depression and burn-out. I think Chappelle realized that his life wasn't going the way he wanted and he decided to take a time-out before things spiralled completely out of control.

    As far as I'm concerned, any comedian that bases their comedy around race is only worsening the racial situation in America. It's a sad commentary on our society that a man like that can achieve any measure of success in the first place.
