Dave Chappelle is an American comedian, screenwriter, television and film producer and actor. He began making appearances in films such as "Robin Hood: Men In Tights" and "Half Baked" in the mid-1990s. In 2003, Chappelle landed his own show on Comedy Central, "Chappelle's Show." He received two Emmy Award nominations for the wildly popular and controversial show, which frequently addressed race relations. In 2006, he abruptly quit the show and moved to a farm in Ohio, but he made a comeback in 2013.

Inspired by the sitcom "The Cosby Show" and its star, comedian Bill Cosby, Chappelle decided he wanted to have a career as a comedian. As a high school student at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, D.C., Chappelle began a stand-up career. Because he was underage, his mother often had to accompany him to clubs as a legal guardian. Even at an early age, Chappelle's brand of humor was controversial, leading to frequent heckling-- he was even booed off stage during amateur night at New York's famous Apollo Theatre.

Dave Chappelle decided to forgo college to start a stand-up career in New York City. By the early 1990s, he had begun earning accolades for his work in comedy. He became the youngest comedian to be featured on the HBO special "Comic Relief VI."

Chappelle also began to make his way into television. Of the several pilots that he shot, only one made it to the air: "Buddies," a Disney-produced ABC series focused on two friends living in New York City. Unfortunately for Chappelle, the series was canceled after just four episodes, but his celebrity continued to grow thereafter.

Chappelle began making appearances in more films in the '90s with more significant parts. He starred in "The Nutty Professor" in 1996, alongside Eddie Murphy, and made his way into three popular films in 1998-- "Woo," "You've Got Mail" and "Half Baked." From there, he filmed the immensely popular comedy special "Killin' Them Softly" in 2000, followed by the film "Undercover Brother" in 2002.

In 2003, Dave Chappelle landed his own show on the Comedy Central cable network, entitled "Chappelle's Show." The provocative comedian not only gained the attention of popular TV personalities such as Oprah Winfrey and Inside the Actor's Studio's James Lipton, he was offered a massive TV deal from Comedy Central after only two seasons. Chappelle was reportedly offered $50 million for an additional two-year contract. Chappelle's Show was about to begin its third season when Chappelle abruptly left during production in 2005. Unhappy with the direction the show had taken and pressured by network executives to change the tone of the comedic series, Chappelle left the United States to visit South Africa. Upon his return, he began living a more reclusive life, moving to Yellow Springs, Ohio, and making only a handful of public appearances.

In 2006, he released the documentary "Dave Chappelle's Block Party," one of his last moments in the spotlight for several years.

In February 2013, to the surprise of many, Dave Chappelle made a surprise appearance at the famed New York City comedy club The Comedy Cellar. Chappelle then headlined the Funny or Die Tour in 2013.
