    i doubt it...

    i saw dave a cpl years ago on some low key standup shit and it was hilarious...

    he was goin in on the SUITS and the hollywood death star....

    id be shocked if he came back but id love to see this nigga on TV again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    if i were dave...

    id go to HBO, demand a budget, put together a 2 hour special full of skits/standup...

    throw it out there, and test the waters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i say HBO because dave was always getting bits cut/altered/shot down and not having complete creative control is one of the main reasons he split....

    how HBO doesnt throw the SOPRANOS money at dave and beg him/promise him complete control is beyond me... maybe they have...

    somebody needs to just promise dave they wont interfere with creative and show him the money...

    when/if he comes back... its back to being the funniest shit on TV.. ill be waiting!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just went from six to midnight


    Angry makes valid points as usual. I would take a watered down chappelle on tv but on hbo would be perfect

    HBO is really the only place to go for a comedian like Dave. I heard some rumors like he was posed to be in Tower Heights but now thats not happening, and a Michel Gondry film thats in development.

    Paul Mooney was on Monique a while ago saying he was trying to get him to do a movie. I'd like to see him and Neal bury the hatchet, cos its fucked up to be best friends and writing partners for years and break up over some bullshit.

    I've been re-watching the chappelle show and sometimes it seemed like he didn't care about the show and just wanted to see how far he could push it before losing the show.

    i dont know but imo if the show gets picked up by someone like fox or cbs

    i dont think dave would be allowed to speak his mind like he does

    hell knowing how fox operates they may pull the show right after the pilot

    Maybe FX will give Chappelle the Louis CK treatment.

    minimal budget, total creative control, and close to zero supervision.
