It's one of the great mysteries of Tthe Aughts: Why, in 2004, did Dave Chapelle walk away from a successful show and a $50 million dollar TV deal? Why did he "disappear" to South Africa for a while? Why did he say "this show is ruining my life" and exit the stage during June 2004 stand-up performance with the whole crowd chanting "I'm RicK James, bitch!"
Many things have been written about the vapid, soul-sucking nature of the entertainment business. And no one knows what it's like to walk in another man's shoes. Using the comedian's own words, YouTuber SciA tried to piece together the mysteries behind Chappelle's departure from the spotlight. The resulting 11-minute mini-documentary is haunting.
