The funniest guy in the world (according to me), has taken a break from joke-telling in favor of spending some time in a mental hospital. According to Entertainment Weekly, Dave Chappelle checked himself into a mental health facility in South Africa and has remained there since late April. EW‘s source says that Chappelle’s stay at the facility is NOT the result of drug abuse.
Chappelle’s Show was supposed to begin its third season at the end of the month, but Comedy Central announced last week that the show had been postponed again. While the channel said it was optimistic about production beginning again, it now seems that the show’s future is iffy.
We at the Tripwire wish Dave Chappelle a speedy recovery… bitch.
