Early Life

Dave Chappelle was born on the 24th August, 1973, in Washington D.C, and has two older siblings. He grew up in Silver Springs, Maryland, and both of his parents were professors at Universities.

As a child, Chappelle attended Woodlin Elementary School, and when his parents split up, he’d spend the majority of his time with his mother in Washington, and the summers with his father in Ohio.

Career

Dave Chappelle's Career

Dave Chappelle moved to New York City in order to pursue a full time career as a comedian. He first performed at the Apollo Theatre in front of the ‘Amateur Night’ audience, but was booed off the stage.

However, he got back at it, and continued to perform for audiences around New York. Chappelle was only 19 years old when he made his first film debut in Robin Hood: Men In Tights.

In 2003, ‘Chappelle’s Show’ was born on Comedy Central. The sketch comedy show was so popular, that Comedy Central offered Chappelle a $55 million contract to continue the show for two years.

Two years later, Chappelle walked away from Comedy Central and turned down a new $60 Million dollar contract from them in the process.

Aside from his wildly successful comedy acts and sketches, Chappelle has featured in many more films since his debut in the industry at 19. You can check out some of those films below in the highlights section.
