Where do you go from "I'm Rick James, bitch"?

Production of Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show" has been shut down and will not make its May 31st premiere date (this is the second times the season has been pushed back).


Coooold blooded.

Dave Chappelle has reportedly been absent from the program's set for weeks. There is speculation of severe writer's block or maybe a falling out between the comedian and the network. Or maybe Dave has gone completely nuts.

Hopefully, it's true that the season 2 DVD set won't get pushed back again, too.

For $50 million, I think that I'd cooperate. Hell, I'd do it for a Klondike Bar.

Maybe he just ran out of "funny."

Possible. He had a lot to live up to. But for the amount of coin that he got, I'd put up any old turd.

Oh, too bad. I love him. I think my favorite bit is the R. Kelly "I Pee On You" video. Hi-larious.

That sketch gets props for introducing "doo doo butter" into my lexicon.

The R. Kelly courtroom skit was comedic genius.

His publicist is denying that the delays are due to drug addiction. I hope that's not the case and it's an easily resolvable issue...

Is that the one where Dave's being interviewed for jury selection? That's classic. Why Michael Jackson is innocent: "He made Thriller....Thriller."
