All Time by Comedy Central, comedian Dave Chappell has so far proven his worth in the comedy circuit. He's rank #43 in this list. Dave actually blew off on his first stand-up stint at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York where he was booed off stage at age 15. However, his pursuit in becoming a stand-up idol made him a favorite in comedy clubs along the East Coast. In 1992, he made his first appearance on television via Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam on HBO, where Whoopi Goldberg noticed him. At age 20, comedian Dave Chappell made it to be the youngest comic to have a spot in Comic Relief VI. After that, producers seemed to go after him as well. Dave had his first major role in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. In addition, he supposedly had a role in Forest Gump where he would've played Bubba but he turned it down thinking it's going to be a flop. He later admitted to deeply regretting it after the movie garnered so much accomplishment. Comedian Dave Chappell soon became one of the sought-after comedians, mostly playing supporting roles as in the movies Nutty Professor and Con Air, which seemingly would appear bland without his character. His intangible role in Martin Lawrence's Blue Streak clearly attests to this. By 2003, comedian Dave Chappell was offered his debut television show "The Chapelle's Show" broadcasted weekly on Comedy Central. After its second season, "The Chappelle's Show was the second highest-rated show next to South Park that Comedy Central's mother company Viacom decided to cut a $50 million deal with him for a couple more years as well as side projects. Comedian Dave Chappell was born on August 23, 1973 in Washington, D.C., the birthplace of his mother. But lived in Yellow Springs, Ohio, where his dad came from. He went to grade school in Silver Spring, MD. After the divorce of his parents, Dave was under his mother's custody and went back to his birthplace. It was there that he attended high school but went back to Yellow Springs during the summers. Currently, he and his family (his wife and children) live in a farm near the outskirts of Yellow Springs – his retreat whenever his not doing work.
