Thought For the Week From Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle
One of my favorite comedians is Dave Chappelle. He's a pretty raw person - at times a bit controversial, but as an artist he's quite creative and funny. I read a piece on him in a magazine and wanted to quote something he said:

"We all have a personal message that we're trying to get across and it's about more than making money."

This was probably said after he walked off the set of his show on Comedy Central and left everybody wondering what happened to him. He turned down the $50 million (yes, $50 million) contract with Comedy Central and opted to make a movie instead. A pretty bold move on his part, but I can understand he didn't want to undermine his integrity as an artist. He felt like he lost control of his show, I'm sure. Rumors were spread about him, but who really knows what happened.... I'm not the one to judge.

Hats off to you, Dave Chappelle!
