Dave Chappelle

Comedian Dave Chappelle was born on August 24, 1973 in Washington, D.C. He was raised in Silver Spring, MD by his dad, a statistician and Antioch College professor, and mom, who worked for the revolutionary Patrice Lumumba in the Congo. She was a scholar who studied African-American studies and was the first black woman in the U.S. to become a Unitarian Universalist minister. Chappelle converted to Islam in 1998. He lives on a 65 acre farm in Ohio with his wife, Elaine, and their three kids – sons Sulayman and Ibrahim and daughter Sonal. Chappelle hit the stand-up comedy scene as a teenager. His mega-successful Comedy Central show “Chappelle’s Show” debuted in 2003. It became the best-selling TV show in DVD history. He abruptly walked off the show’s set in April 2005 and disappeared from fans and family. It was later revealed he had jetted off to South Africa for two weeks. By doing so, he walked away from $50 million. He signed a deal with Netflix in November 2016 for three stand-up comedy specials to be released by the streaming giant.
