Seven years later, Chappelle confessed some harsh truths on David Letterman's Late Show:
Chappelle said "Technically: I didn't quit, I'm seven years late to work."
I went to the Odd Ball Comedy fest in Phoenix where Chappelle headlined. Comedy is subjective, but he wasn't the funniest comedian that night. Maybe the Hartford incident affected his set because it didn't strengthen his material. Despite his lackluster performance, it was nice to see him back behind the mic telling some jokes.
Hopefully, in this day and age, Chappelle can crowd fund and produce the show he always wanted with the corporate interference.
