Watch Neal Brennan Discuss Being Held Responsible for The Demise of 'Chappelle's Show'
“If you assume Chappelle’s Show ended on some racist shit, who else are you going to hold responsible?”
Chappelle’s Show co-creator, Neal Brennan, is the next guest on Talib Kweli’s People’s Party podcast.
In an excerpt from this week’s episode, the comedian discusses the many phases of his relationship with Dave Chappelle. Brennan claims the two could not be closer, forging a dear friendship and creative partnership in NYC during the early-90s. He goes on to describe the fallout from the show’s demise as “interesting from my point of view, but from the outside, it must have been riveting.” Brennan also dispells rumors of tension between them leading to Chappelle’s Show’s end. “If you assume Chappelle’s Show ended on some racist shit, who else are you going to hold responsible?” Brennan candidly asked Kweli.
This Sunday, Brennan will join an elite line-up at The Kennedy Center honoring Chappelle with the 22nd annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Previous recipients include Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, George Carlin, and Bill Murray.
