Chappelle's Woes23 May, 2005 By: Holly J. Wagner
With comedian Dave Chappelle AWOL just as he was supposed to start producing season three of his phenomenally popular “Chappelle's Show,” what's a network to do?
Apparently at Comedy Central the answer is to air the DVD bonus materials as “The DVD Bootleg Episodes” every Tuesday night this month. With Chappelle's Show: Season 2 set to street May 24, viewers have been getting a month-long peek at the bonus features that will be available on the disc.
Chappelle, who was rumored to be in rehab or a mental institution, did an interview with Time magazine in which he said he went to stay with a friend in South Africa and do a little self-assessment.
