Dave Chappelle ‘Sanely’ Walked Away From A Big Money Deal When Everyone Thought He Was Insane (Video)

This is wonderful. The full circle of Dave Chappelle’s life. Walking away from millions and millions of dollars, when you understand it was because he was doing what was right… for him, is the SANEST thing Dave could have done back in the day. And doing such is not a new thing to his family. For generations, since his Great Grandfather, Dave’s family history is rife with stories of folks doing what’s right; with the bigger picture in mind.

David Chappelle is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer, best known for his satirical comedy sketch series Chappelle’s Show (2003 – 2006). Chappelle is the recipient of numerous accolades, including two Emmy Awards and three Grammy Awards as well as a Mark Twain Prize. Dave Chappelle is renowned for his ability to point out the underlying truths in society and bring humor to serious issues.

We have shared this particular story from Dave before. But I like the way it is ‘remixed’ here.

Tisha Campbell Shares Memories, Stories About Her Kids, And Her Interview Time With A Surprise Guest (Video)

Wow. A Kid N Play ‘footwork’ greeting instead of a handshake greeting. Sounds like a cool idea if you have any level of coordination. But if you’re like me… maybe we can ‘modify’ that move. Ha!

But Tisha has no idea how this ‘cool idea’ will resurface (in a manner of speaking) in this interview clip.

It’s a “House Party” reunion! Tisha Campbell joined Access Daily hosts Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover to chat about her new show “Outmatched,” which airs Thursday nights on FOX. Tisha opened up about why her two kids were the reason she joined the series. Tisha also gave an amazing update on her eldest son, revealing that he got into the college of his dreams. Plus, watch Tisha’s priceless reaction to former “House Party” co-star Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid crashing her interview!

Social distancing be damned when Kid comes on the set! And Kid cannot be mad at that. Tisha is still looking great!

Corey Holcomb Speaks On His Bad Intentions Toward Babymommas & Good Intentions For The Kids (Video)

If you want me to leave the girl I’m with, step to me naked.

And, as always, don’t be all financially and emotionally stable and well… Not Cory Holcomb’s “target market.” Call him a budget-tricker or a value sugar daddy. Whatever, this outbreak of poverty is keeping him IN these SKINS for the 3 hunnid. Max payout!

(Hey, that’s 15 dubs, ladies. Hahaaaa!)

Claressa Shields Speaks On What Boxing Has Done For Her And Why She Spars With Guys (Video)

Anything that gets in the way of my focus, I get rid of it.

Flint, Michigan, produced a pugilistic azz kicker in Claressa Shields. The nine title belts in her possession leave no doubt! Great interview. Insightful. I was thinking that, with all the hearsay and hype regarding back-and-forth between Claressa and Laila Ali, there would be more spiciness in Shields speaking on the situation. Nah… more clarity than clapping back.

Wow! TK got triggered in this chit chat ASAP. He’s always made his views on manhood well-known; clarified them even more here. He really goes in on child rearing, too. Remember, Comedy Hype talks to folks who make the jokes… But the talk is rarely a ‘ha ha’ thing.

For a sit down with CH, veteran comedian and author of ‘Time And Choices’ (set to release on Nov. 6), @TK_Kirkland shares his thoughts on seeing Dwyane Wade publicly push his young son’s gender decision.

It’s that time of year where we set up a swimming pool in our back lot and send Cousin Sal out to Hollywood Blvd to offer pedestrians the chance to take their clothes off on national television and have them compete in a belly flop competition.

Comedy: Nikki Glaser Shares Her Insights On Penises (Video)

Wow. Conan must REALLY make his guests feel at ease to talk about ANYTHING. And the ‘thing’ Nikki Glaser wants to talk about the most… penis. I mean, the show is hosted by Conan, but Nikki is the real barbarian (ha)!

Actually, this chat was kind of therapeutic.

Nikki helps a lot of women and one brave man in the CONAN audience.

Mel Brooks’ Son, Max, Explains Why You Must Stay Home During This Coronavirus Crisis (Video)

A win for ‘Entertainment That Informs’… I really like this. The messaging has been clear to date, on what we should be doing as individuals to minimize the spread of the Coronavirus. But I feel like this vid brings it home to a few different audiences: folks who love Mel Brooks, enough to care about his family, friends, impact on comedy, maybe even his son Max.

Check Out The Highlights From The 13th Annual ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Belly Flop Competition (Video)

I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s celeb commentary on this Belly Flop competition. There’s technique to consider… Take it seriously, folks!! Reminds me of the VERY serious (but hella fun) Cannonball Competitions we had every summer back in Tuskegee (Alabama, USA) back in the day.

Every year we set up an above-ground swimming pool, and we send Cousin Sal out to Hollywood Blvd to pull a group of confused pedestrians off the street, put them in bathing suits and make them compete in a belly flop contest. This year’s guest judges are Adam Rippon, Mark McGrath, Anthony Anderson’s mom Doris, and a special appearance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Nia Long Speaks On That ‘Cherry Thong’ Line And Her New Movie (Video)

Listen. I got kids to put through college. I will sell some cherry thongs!

Hey, hey, Sway! Back up, son. I got the answers for Nia, not you (haha)!

O…M…G! I will buy a woman some Nia Long thongs on sight!! That idea is epic. And the visual I got going in my mind right now… ooooh weee!!

Nia Long is starring in a new movie called The Banker alongside Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson coming out in March 2020. The film is about two Black men who started a company, but hired a White man to act as if he was the owner as they posed as the janitor and chauffeur as they ran the business back in the 1950’s. Nia Long stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about her role in the film.

Jada Pinkett Smith Invites Snoop Dogg To The Red Table… To Heal (Video)

What about when I wanna cry? What about when I wanna hurt?

This is gonna be ANOTHER epic Red Table Talk.

Oh, that’s right. Tupac is the link between Jada and Snoop (watch, cover that right away). Low-key, well not really since I am typing my thoughts here, this is pretty brave of The DoggFather to come on the show known for getting them Oprah tears out of guests… Speaking of OprahJada, Gammy, and Willow WILL be getting Snoop to go in on what he said about O’s BFF Gayle King. So, lean in!

Have you heard about their show on Showtime? You should check it out. A good time, a good time-waster, a good way to spend your time… Barnes and Jackson’s show “All The Smoke” vacillates between these states most of the time.

Will Ferrell Vs. The World’s Hottest Hot Wings (Video)

Will says he enjoys spicy food to an extent… even with that ulcer? Is that a real thing, Will? Never know with this guy, being that far is never too far for Farrell to go to get a laugh. But could the killer hot wings actually kill him (okay, cause him to have to go to a hospital) this time?

Will Ferrell is a comedy icon with a storied career in TV and film that span decades. He stars alongside fellow comedic legend Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in the new film Downhill, in theaters now. But how is he with spicy food? Find out as he takes on the wings of death with host Sean Evans in an especially improvisational Hot Ones (fun fact: JLD was hoping to join but was too under the weather). Along the way, Ferrell shares behind-the-scenes stories from beloved movies like Anchorman and Old School, discusses the origins of his famous Harry Caray impersonation on Saturday Night Live, and expresses sincere shock that Seinfeld and Friends fans don’t always get along.

Talib Kweli Speaks With John Forte On His Coming Up, The Fugees, His Cocaine Arrest, His Release, And Life Now (Video)

Man! What a great interview!!

Shout to Kweli’s people for the time indexing for this episode. I am a STAN for John Forte from waaaay back… like when I did not know his name… when he SNAPPED on the Fugees’ joint “Cowboy”… and we called him ‘The 7th Emcee’ because he never did not give his name at any point of giving us the most FIRE SHUTDOWN BARZ on one of the most FIRE songs… EVER #WhenPandemoniumStrikes

Buuuuut starting at 52:43 though…

John touches on “I, John” — the album he recorded at a time when he was aware of his pending prison sentence. He also speaks to his relationship with singer/song writer Carly Simon, who fought hard, advocating for his early release. Her efforts eventually proving to be successful, with an executive order of clemency from President Bush.

Yes. I wanna know how in the holey holy f**k did rapper John Forte get a President… President Bush… to let him out early??
