Oh, that’s what happened with Dave Chappelle.
The comedian went on Late Night on Tuesday and talked about his abrupt departure from his Comedy Central cult hit series Chappelle’s Show.
“I don’t talk about it,” Chappelle said. “Listen, here it is: Technically, I never quit. I’m seven years late for work.”
The interview was Chappelle’s first Late Show appearance in a decade.
In the full interview, Chappelle compared his departure to “getting divorced in the ’50s.”
“People didn’t go to divorce court. They just look at their wife and were like, ‘I’m going to go get a pack of cigarettes. I’ll be right back.’ They just leave with the clothes on their back and make a go of it.”
