Dave Chappelle - An old reference, but a good one
« on: February 05, 2018, 03:08:53 PM »
I actually had never heard this part of Chappelle's story. I knew he vanished after getting famous, and didn't resurface until 13 years later. But, watching this Oprah special, I learned that he actually walked away from 50 million dollars, and did it specifically because he wasn't willing to put up with the corporate BS.

My favorite part was when he was talking about being willing to do his show again, on the condition that he gets to control the environment so that it's about having fun again. Dude actually walked away from 50 million dollars because a) He could, and b) He wanted to structure his life and work so that it would be fun.
