Touting himself as Blackzilla, Chappelle has been on the road since mid-February and will continue onward through the end of May. It looks like his efforts are paying off, too; thus far, nearly all of his shows have sold out.

The comedian got his start in his native Washington, D.C., at 14 years old. He began making the local comedy club circuit and eventually graduated to venerable venues including Radio City Music Hall and Lincoln Center.

Although he has his own successful comedy show, “Chappelle’s Show,” and can be found several months out of the year on the road, Chappelle still has enough energy left to tackle the movie industry.

From his feature film debut in Mel Brooks’ “Robin Hood: Men In Tights,” to the recent “Undercover Brother,” Chappelle has done his fair share of films. His first major starring role was in the cult hit “Half Baked,” which he also co-wrote.
