Dave Chapelle is one of the only comedians to have walked away from fame and fortune. However, when he left his popular Dave Chappelle Show after its three-year run, it was highlighted by his berating the audience during one of his stand-up shows. After walking off stage in anger, he returned and told them “You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you’re not smart enough to get what I’m doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid.” Born in Washington, D.C., Chapelle was born to well-educated parents. His father became a professor in Statistics at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, while his mother taught at Howard University, the University of Maryland and Prince George’s Community College. After making his millions, Chappelle bought a large piece of land in Yellow Springs, where he spent most of his summers after his parents divorced during his childhood. His career began by him getting booed off stage at the Apollo Theater. However, at the young age of 19, he landed a role in the iconic Mel Brooks film Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
