Dave Chappelle And Comedy Central Make Up And It’s Ok To Watch Chappelle’s Show Again
Dave Chappelle has reached "Jay-Z" status as it relates to whatever he does being a big deal.
Out of the blue last night, Chappelle dropped a 10-minute special on YouTube's Netlflix Is A Joke Channel, telling his fans that the feud between him and Comedy Central is over and they have paid him his money!
Months ago Chappelle asked his fans and Netflix not to stream his show "Chappelle's Show" until Comedy Central paid him.
You may remember that Netflix removed the show from its streaming lineup in November at Chappelle's request. The comedian cited the fact that under a contract he'd signed with ViacomCBS that prevented him receiving royalties. He also said the show had been licensed without his consent.
It appears that ViacomCBS caved after seeing fans and Netflix honor his request that no one watch the show.
"I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did," Chappelle said. "You made that show worthless because without your eyes it’s nothing."
The show that ran from 2003-2006 on Comedy Central has become a cult classic.
Every time I turn the channel to Comedy Central, they are playing episodes of the show that I'm sure gets ratings to an even newer generation.
In the video, Chappelle talks about the insurrection at the Capitol Building last month, being diagnosed with COVID-19, and most of all what happened between him and Comedy Central.
