His rocket to international stardom came in 2003 with the groundbreaking “Chappelle’s Show,” a half-hour blend of sketch, stand-up and musical guests. Chappelle has also appeared in films such as “Half Baked,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Con Air,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Blue Streak,” as well as on over 40 national television shows including numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Politically Incorrect.”
