“CBS THIS MORNING” CO-HOST GAYLE KING SITS DOWN WITH DAVE CHAPPELLE PRIOR TO HIS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED, $60 MILLION NETFLIX SPECIAL, FOR AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW TO AIR ON “CBS THIS MORNING” MONDAY, MARCH 20
In advance of his Netflix special, Dave Chappelle recently sat down with CBS THIS MORNING co-host Gayle King for the comedian’s first in-depth interview since 2006.
Chappelle, who in 2005 famously walked away from “Chappelle’s Show” and the huge contract that came along with the job, to largely disappear from the public eye tells King of his departure,“I think that was an irreconcilable moment for me. That I was in this very successful place, but the emotional content of it didn’t feel anything like what I imagined success should feel like. It just didn’t feel right.”
