The 40 year-old comedian appeared on Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' and revealed why he knew the rapper would become a huge star when they first met back in 2004.
After several years of avoiding chat shows and interviews, Dave Chappelle is back on the circuit and is as hilarious as ever.
The 40 year-old comedian stopped by Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' on Friday (June 13th) mainly to promote his nine-show run at Radio City Music Hall.
But it is when he recalls meeting Kanye West for the first time that has garnered people's attention.
Chappelle was going for a Richards
When Michael Richards went crazy on stage, calling people all kind of awful things, many – including himself – thought his career was over. For some reason, far be it from us to guess why, David Chappelle’s attempt at the reverse hasn’t been treated with the same vitriol.

But by Chappelle’s own admission, he was "I wanted to pull a 'reverse Kramer' and call them all 'crackers' or something like that."
Chris Brown and Rihanna, back together? It’s certainly looking that way, after the couple were spotted smooching at New York City nightspot Griffin this week. Just one week after Brown and Nicole Scherzinger were forced to play down rumors of a romance, the ‘Run It!’ singer appears to have reignited his controversial relationship with Ri-Ri.
According to the reliable folk at E! Online, Brown was initially joined by Bow Wow at his own table inside the club, before Rihanna arrived and sat in a separate booth. Later in the evening, Brown climbed over to join Rihanna at her table before somewhat bizarrely taking off his shirt. It seemed to do the trick though because before long, the former couple were dancing and making out. Brown eventually left the club just before 4am, with Rihanna following suit around five minutes later. Representatives for both stars are remaining suspiciously silent on the story and let’s not forget: Brown is still on probation for beating the Barbadian singer before the Grammy Awards in 2009. Nevertheless, they have remained close and even shared a friendly kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.
Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran was noticeably absent from the club this week, though Dave Chappelle, Tyson Beckford and Chris Rock were all in attendance. In a further twist, one eyewitness claims to have spotted Rihanna and Chris Brown leaving the Gansevoort Hotel together the following day. Coincidence?
You've Got Mail is about a woman named Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan), who's children's book store is in danger of being put out of business because of a new Barnes and Noble type book super store, owned by Joe Fox (Tom Hanks). When they meet each other they (of course) hate each other. What's the problem? They don't know that the other one is their favorite e-mail buddy. The premise is actually creative but they don't do anything with it. Hanks and Ryan have the unnecessary romances with Parker Posey and Greg Kinnear at the beginning, but the audience knows better. We know they're going to be history in about forty-five minutes. Bored yet?

There seems to be an unwritten rule that movies starring ex-stand-up comedians must come to a grinding halt at some point for the star to have a vanity improv scene.
Every Robin Williams has such moments -- even his syrupy, sentimental pictures. Every Martin Lawrence movie does too. In "Blue Streak," the improv moment comes when Lawrence dons a nappy pigtails wig, gnarly false teeth, body padding and a velour jogging suit to pose as a hyperactive pizza delivery boy.
For that one scene, any common sense regarding the story is put on pause and Lawrence cuts loose with an epileptic booty bump dance and a lot of babbling smack, all of which is designed to produce seat-bouncing laughs (it doesn't), but has little to do with the movie.
