Every Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle fan will remember Charlie Murphy; edgier stand-up comedian and source of the famous “True Hollywood Stories” that launched Chappelle’s Show into the stratosphere. Sadly, Charlie Murphy is no longer with us, having passed away at age 57.
Dave Chappelle practically quit show-business over the endless association with his viral Chappelle’s Show characters, to the point few presumed we’d ever see them again. Well, it seems we owe The Walking Dead’s frustrating cliffhanger a debt of gratitude, as Chappelle took his SNL hosting as a chance to revive a number of Chappelle’s Show favorites … at least to kill one off.
Earlier today, The Daily reported that ‘Chappelle’s Show’ funnyman Dave Chappelle was planning a return to TV after a six-year hiatus.
“Dave Chappelle’s going back to TV,” an insider said. “It’s not for a network. It’s for Netflix or Crackle or some other subscription service.”
