Ibrahim Chappelle Career

After his film debut at the age of 19, he acted in more films like Getting In and Forrest Gump. He also appeared as a guest in a TV sitcom named Home Improvement. This led to the development of another sitcom, Buddies, which did not do well and subsequently went off-air. Around this time, his father passed away, which was a big blow to him, and he was so disturbed that he thought of leaving the work. But he continued working and appeared in 'Nutty Professor' alongside Eddie Murphy, whom he idolized. He also did a small role in 'Con Air.' Some of the major work as an actor include 'Half Baked' in 1988, which he had also co-written with Neal Brenna, 'Blue Streak' and 'You've Got Mail. This made him the household name and the star that he is today. He established himself in the industry and earned great fame and money.

It was in 2003 that he did his most popular show, Chappelle's Show, which was a comedy sketch show. This show was a parody of American culture and society. He talked about America's racial discrimination, pop culture and politics. This show was a huge hit, and he was offered a 55 million USD contract to go on with the show. But he was hesitant and stated that sketch comedy is not his favorite form of comedy. Dave could not complete the shooting of the 3rd season of the show and left for Africa, stating personal reasons. This led to a lot of media speculation, with some accusing him of being a drug addict.

Dave bought a sixty-five-acre farm in Yellow Springs, where he, along with his wife and children, reside.
