SOHH reports that Comedy Central will finishing up production on the 3rd season of Chappelle’s Show over the next couple of days:
They will be taping the live studio audience segments of four episodes. In place of Chappelle, who used to introduce all the skits, the last episodes will be co-hosted by "Chappelle’s Show" co-creator Neal Brennan, and cast members Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings.
I know Dave fell out with Brennan after he took his little vacation, but I wonder how he feels about Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings contributing to this season? He made it pretty clear in his recent interview with Toure on BET that he wasn’t at all pleased with the idea of them airing the partially completed season:
TOURE: Because they see you as more human?
DAVE CHAPPELLE: So much of our culture’s based on celebrity worship that it’s hard to remember that celebrities are just people, I think.
TOURE: What do you think about Comedy Central airing season three?
DAVE CHAPPELLE: I didn’t want it to be aired, obviously, or I wouldn’t have left in the first place. I feel like I’m being disciplined or perhaps bullied. And if people don’t watch it, I’d be more than happy. I’m not gonna say to boycott it. But if people don’t watch it, I’d be more than happy.
