Dave Chappelle: "I Never Quit Chappelle's Show" (VIDEO)

On Tuesday night, Dave Chappelle visited Late Show with David Letterman to promote a series of standup gigs he's doing at Radio City Music Hall next week, and the comedian's ensuing chat with Letterman marked his first late-night television appearance since he dropped by Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2008 (as well as his first appearance on the Late Show in a decade). 

As you may expect, the topic of Chappelle's 2005 exit from his extremely popular Comedy Central series Chappelle's Show came up. There were plenty of highlights; the two Daves calmly discussed why Chappelle left and whether he regrets the decision (among other things), with Chappelle pointing out that "technically, I never quit—I'm seven years late for work."

Check out the edited version of the interview below to see all the best Chappelle's Show-related bits, or the full 14-minute conversation below that to hear Chappelle weigh in on fatherhood, performing standup, what it means to have money, and more. If you've got the time, I highly recommend settling in for the extended chat—the guy's got some really intelligent and even inspiring things to say.

That show was hilarious.
The Wayne Brady gangster sketch is one of the funniest things ever done on TV IMO.

Seems like being such a well-known celebrity took it's toll on Dave. I'm very glad to see him back and with such a good view of it all.
Can we get a Half Baked 2 now, please?
