Chappelle’s Show Season 2 Uncensored

With the future of Dave Chappelle's Comedy Central series up in the air, fans will have to make due with "Chappelle's Show Season 2 Uncensored." The remarkable success of the skein's first season -- it sold more than 2.8 million copies and is considered the top TV title yet on disc -- prompted a salary renegotiation for Chappelle.

With the future of Dave Chappelle’s Comedy Central series up in the air, fans will have to make due with “Chappelle’s Show Season 2 Uncensored,” originally meant to tie into the skein’s third season. The remarkable success of the skein’s first season — it sold more than 2.8 million copies and is considered the top TV title yet on disc — prompted a salary renegotiation for Chappelle. Prospects look good for this as well.

The second season saw the program hit its stride in showcasing the easygoing personality of the host, who introduces the prerecorded, outrageous, provocative sketches in front of a live audience. The three-disc set’s extras include standup from Chappelle and outtakes plus commentary by Chappelle and series co-creator/co-writer Neal Brennan on five episodes.

It also features two unaired stories by Charlie Murphy, whose tales of hanging out with Rick James were the basis of season two’s zenith (and the source of unfortunate catchphrase “I’m Rick James, bitch!”). The James stories were presented docu/re-creation style, with Murphy narrating, Chappelle playing James, and James himself commenting on the veracity of the tales. Indeed, the fun and flexibility of “Chappelle’s Show” makes one wonder if the death of the traditional sitcom is something to be mourned.
