Dave Chappelle and Naomi Campbell linked up for a lengthy interview as a part of her No Filter with Naomi series. The pair not only spoke of their mutal admiration and respect of each other, but also about Chappelle’s career as a comedian, his Juke Joint events, and what ushered him to start using his Instagram account.
Chappelle also recounted his first major acclaim for his beloved Chappelle’s Show series, which was when the Rick James sketch was released. The comedian recalled how, the day after the sketch aired, he heard people talking about it as he rode on the subway to Comedy Central’s production office.
“The whole way, all anybody on the car was talking about, was my show,” Chappelle said. “They didn’t know I was sitting there…I was hearing them laughing and talking about the show that was on last night, and I said, ‘Well, that’s a big one.'”
