Episode Summary

NegroDamus: Paul Mooney comes in and plays a psychic (Nostradamus). Of course, everything that comes out of Mooney's mouth takes on a funny yet decidedly dark tone.
Red Balls: Tryone Biggins is out again, this time as a spokesperson for a brand new energy drink called Red Balls - of course made from crack. "Now cocaine comes in a delicious new shake."
Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories (Prince): One of the funniest sketches of series, this CMTH depicts Charlie Murphy's run in with Prince at a night club. The sketch gets funnier and funnier as Prince invites Charlie and his crew over to his house to hang out then eventually play basketball then eventually eat pancakes together. Brilliant sketch all the way around.
Musical Performance: Cee-Lo performs "Call Me"moreless

  • The Negrodamus sketch and the Red Balls sketch were funny, but the Prince Basketball sketch was one of the best in the series.

    Game, Blouses! As mentioned above, the first two sketches were just OK. The Prince sequence was one of the high points of the show. I was laughing really hard when I first saw this episode. Dave Chappelle did a great job playing Prince, and Charlie Murphy's narration and acting was hilarious. That last scene where Prince dunks and looks into the camera was the funniest single moment on Chapelle's Show, and one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV. I'm actually glad that Dave stopped doing the show. Moments like this are very rare no matter how talented you are, and he stepped away from the show at the right time. The Prince sketch was great, and it is exactly why I love this show.moreless

      Charlie Murphy: So I was like, this nigga must be jokin', man. I didn't know where he was going with this sh*t. But, he was dead serious. He had his help or whatever go and get some, like, shorts and sneakers, and laughing, I'm like, this is gonna be some funny ass sh*t. So they come out, right, and I look at them, and um, they still got on the same sh*t they'd be wearing at the club. It was wild, and I was like, I know they ain't thinking of playing ball in that, but they were. And I said:
      Charlie Murphy: Hey you know what, you know what we're gonna call this? The shirts against the blouses! (Prince makes a nervous face)
      Charlie Murphy: And when I said that, this look came on his face. And I'm looking back at him thinking to myself, you know, what are you angry about? You know where you got that shirt from, and it damn sure not from the men's department! But I learned something that day. Don't judge a book by it's cover. This cat can ball!
