Gothamist just posted the news that there will be two more seasons of Chapelle Show, which makes my day. Dave had kidded that he was going to walk away from it all after last season, but I didn’t believe it for a second. What, is Reno 911 supposed to carry Comedy Central?
Chapelle Show is definitely uneven, and there are tons of skits that are down right lame-o (like the excrement focused civil rights skit)…but when he’s on, his best jokes become part of the culture. Who hasn’t heard, “I’m Rick James, bitch”? Hell, who hasn’t yelled it in a drunken haze?
