Dave Chappelle on Oprah

chappellejames.jpgDave Chappelle is not crazy -- well at least in his mind. Fans might have thought differently when they saw Chappelle on Oprah today. Not that he was jumping on couches or anything, but I thought I would never see him as her guest.

I'd have to say, I am not an Oprah fan, yet I found this to be an awesome interview. Chappelle seemed honest and interesting, and while most of us can't fathom giving back a $50 million paycheck, he seemed to do his best to put it into perspective.

Access Hollywood is reporting that Chappelle was stressed out when he left the show last year while filming the third season of "Chappelle's Show."

After Chappelle fled production, he headed to South Africa, prompting suspicion that he was sick -- either mentally or nursing a drug problem. "Who goes from America to Africa for medical attention?" Chappelle asked. Judging from the interview he still has the comedic touch; I'd love to see it back on a weekly basis.

Thankfully, Chappelle has not ruled out that possibility. However, he has his stipulations, which would include donating a portion of the DVD sales. My guess is that Comedy Central would be interested in making some sort of deal.

Comedy Central plans to air the four episodes of "Chappelle's Show" that never aired. Expect the abbreviated third season to premiere in the second quarter this year. -- Rachel Cericola
