Pressure Too Much For Chappelle?
Newsweek reports that the popular sketch show has been put on hold because friends say Chappelle's been worn down by pressure, excessive partying- and a creative rift with Comedy Central. They blame the comedian's feeling the weight of living up to his $50 million contract.
Neither Chappelle's nor Comedy Central's spokespeople are offering any official explanation for the latest delay. A source close to Chappelle believes this latest stoppage is more about the show itself than the health of its star. The network, however, continues to insist the current delay "is not a network issue."
