I just love Dave, he’s great. USA Today published this and I thought you might be interested in:
DAYTON, Ohio — Comedian Dave Chappelle says he may not return to his hit Comedy Central show if the cable network goes through with plans to air new episodes from material he filmed before leaving the series.
Dave Chappelle said his return to Comedy Central is up in the air but broadcasting leftover filmed sketches would damage the relationship.
"I feel like it’s kind of a bully move," Chappelle said. "That’s just how I feel about it. I don’t know if that’s the case. But if people don’t watch it, then I’d be more than happy."
In May, Chappelle stunned his fans and the entertainment industry by skipping out on a $50 million contract and leaving Chappelle’s Show in mid-production. He spent two weeks in South Africa before returning home to his farm near Yellow Springs. He has since resumed performing live standup.
Chappelle said his possible return to Chappelle’s Show is still up in the air.
"But I think if they air that stuff, I can’t see how I’m going to be able to," he said. "That will damage our relationship."
Comedy Central has said in the past it plans to air the material, but wouldn’t comment on any current specific plans.
