THE REASON FOR SPLITTING

THE REASON FOR SPLITTING

Howard mentioned he read an article that explained why Dave Chappelle left “The Chappelle Show,” and, according to the report, he did it because he wasn’t sure if people were laughing with him or at him. Given this, Howard added Dave was apparently having conflicting thoughts about his show, mostly because he thought he might be putting on a modern-day minstrel show, and thus sending kids a negative message. After hearing the article, Artie pointed out that when he was on “Mad TV” he, too, used to wonder if people in the crowd were laughing at his sketches, or the fact that he was fat. Artie also said he felt Dave was, in fact, a role model for kids because of his brand of humor and the success he had because of it.
