Neal Brennan On His Relationship With Dave Chappelle & What Happened With Chappelle Show (Video)

Hmm… now I gotta find that ep of Joe Rogan’s podcast with Neal Brennan as a guest. Was Joe, in fact, being ‘dickish’ to Neal regarding Dave Chappelle? Well… this clip covers all that and then some. Good stuff!

In this clip from People’s Party, Neal Brennan details aspects of “Chappelle’s Show” end and the falling out around it, as well as his working relationship with Dave Chappelle, then and now. Neal also expands on what it’s like to be a White comedian who does material for black audiences and how he and Dave’s roles would get stereotyped by comedians and studios due to race.

In a phone interview, actor/comedian Tracy Morgan tells UPROXX about the folks who influenced his style of comedy (from his dad and uncles to Bill Cosby and George Carlin). He goes on to talk about his current moves: missed out on getting to replace Letterman on ‘Late Night’ but Rio and Rio 2…hard work, nice checks! And ‘school lunch’ with President Obama? It’s kind of funny to think about; but something to think about though, right?

To punctuate the article, and make it more of a multimedia experience, UPROXX also shared a Tracy Morgan: ‘Re-Animated’ clip (courtesy of Comedy Central, embedded above).
