Dave Chappelle

Born: 24 / 8 / 1973 , Washington DC , Usa –


Chappelle moved to New York City to pursue a career as a comedian. He performed at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater in front of the infamous “Amateur Night” audience, but he was booed off stage. Chappelle described the experience as the moment that gave him the courage to continue his show business aspirations.

He quickly made a name for himself on the New York comedy circuit, even performing in the city’s parks. Whoopi Goldberg nicknamed him “The Kid”.

At 19, he made his film debut as “Ahchoo” in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights. He also appeared on Star Search three times but lost over competing comedian Lester Barrie; Dave later joked about the irony of him subsequently becoming more successful than Barrie. The same year, Chappelle was offered the role of Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue in Forrest Gump. Concerned the character was demeaning and the movie would bomb, he turned down the part.

He parodied the film in the 1997 short “Bowl of Pork,” where a dim-witted black man is responsible for the Rodney King beating, the LA riots and OJ Simpson being accused of murder.

Chappelle played another supporting role in an early Doug Liman film, Getting In in 1994.[14] At age 19, he was the opening act for R&B soul singer Aretha Franklin.
