Chappelle has had a triumphant return to showbiz
But Chappelle isn't finished yet as he is determined to conquer the world of television once again, and revealed to the magazine's December issue his future career aspirations. "For one year, I want to do this thing where I guest-star on as many television shows as I possibly can. I love television," he admitted.
"The fact that television ultimately made me famous was very gratifying for me," Chappell continued. "Chris Tucker did it in movies, and Chris Rock did it from his stand-up, which was very impressive. But you know, the thing that people most will remember me for is Chappelle's Show. If I were to never do anything else, that show would be a culmination of what was a very long and tedious process of me learning how to be in the television business."
The 41 year-old funnyman, who abruptly departed from his Comedy Central show in 2006 without giving a reason, finally offered fans an explanation as to why he left.
"You know, for a while, I was kind of sequestered," he said. "Well, sequestered is not the right word. It was more like Superman's self-imposed exile."
Chappelle, who escaped to South Africa during the height of the speculation surrounding the show's future, never planned on taking such a long break from showbiz.
"People are always like, 'I heard you moved to Africa.' And in reality I was only there for about two weeks," he said. "I was on 'vacation.' I don't want to be too specific, but it wasn't even like I necessarily left. I wasn't like, 'I'm leaving and I'm never coming back.' It wasn't necessarily that kind of thing. But then there was a sequence of events.and ten years later, here we are."
