News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. June 10, 2014: Comedian Dave Chappelle, pose for photographers outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, as he leaves after his taping on the David Letterman Show, Tuesday June 10, 2014, in New York City.
Chappelle made a come back on Weds. June 11th with a Radio City performance in which he told the audience he was out making enough money to disappear again. Long before he became famous for playing Prince and Rick James on his sketch-comedy show Chappelle’s Show, before he walked away from a multi-million contract, before he decamped to South Africa and became a semi-recluse, Chappelle was a stand-up comic — one who could rival Louis C.K. for the best-working-comedian crown.
