Dave Chappelle Is Back. Well, Sorta.

While many folks assume his career's dead, everyone's favorite exiled comedian continues to do shows at comedy clubs nationwide. He recently did an astounding 5 hour set at LA's Laugh Factory. I know what you're saying... "5 hours? I don't want to watch anyone do anything for 5 hours." I mostly agree, but I once saw Chappelle do a set at the Improv here in DC, which pushed 3 hours. It never got boring. Not once. He even opened the floor and took questions about various stuff from the audience. It was still funny. The guy's just that good. Maybe there's another HBO special or TV show on the way, maybe not. Either way, the guy's clearly not starving, and clearly still funny.

Here's a small clip of the marathon 5 hour show, I'm hoping they'll release more at some point, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Bonus footage from someone's phonecam. Dave talks about Obama.

Question: You ever seen Dave Chappelle perform live? Who's the funniest comedian you've ever seen live?
