Dave Chappelle Will Explain Himself to Oprah


Dave Chappelle’s first television interview since abruptly leaving his Comedy Central show last year will be with – who else – Oprah Winfrey.

In the pre-taped sit down, set to air Friday (Feb. 3), Chappelle is expected to explain why he decided to walk away from his top-rated “Chappelle’s Show” and a $50 million deal with the network. He’ll also talk about his sudden trip to South Africa in the midst of all the drama. (They may also discuss a memorable “Chappelle’s Show” skit in which he quits his job after fathering Oprah’s baby – believing he’ll be set for life.)

While Time magazine found him South Africa and scored the first interview with the comedian following his departure, Oprah’s face-to-face will be the first time he’ll discuss the matter before a television audience. 

Chappelle has denied reports that his erratic behavior was because of a mental breakdown or drug addiction. He said his trip to the Mother Land was simply to rest and do some soul searching.
