Dave Chappelle is back to stand-up, making two surprise performances in Los Angeles and the Improv and the Comedy Store. College Humor, which sponsors the Improv show, has an account of his set which shows Dave has some good spirits about all the press, telling audiences he better get “my ass back to work” if he wants to get any money from sales of the Season 2 DVD. No mention if he did any racial material like the sketches that were beginning to concern him.
College Humor also goes on to mention that Chappelle was completely surrounded by fans and industry on his way out. Along with Comedy Central promising to talk business “really, really soon”, the pressure ain’t going away, but hopefully, neither will Dave.
