In 2006, comedian Dave Chappelle appeared on Bravo’s Inside The Actor’s Studio. One year earlier, he essentially “walked away” from his highly popular Comedy Central program Chappelle’s Show and left for an impromptu trip to South Africa; at the time, the media speculated that he had drug and/or mental issues.
