    You've really got problems if you'd go to South Africa for medical treatment.

    Comedians in general have self-estime issues, that's why they're funny.

    Dave's been around working the East Coast comedy circut for ever, then all of a sudden he's got a hit show on his hands with his name on it. They just signed a deal with him for $50 million, that makes him the highest paid comedian on latenight t.v., higher than Leno or Letterman. That also puts him under a ton of pressure to produce and the guyis a perfectionist.

    I hope he get's through this, I'd hate to see him pull a Freddy Pinze on us.

    I remember Jonathan Winters went to the nut-house one time. I thought maybe having to play Mork's son had something to do with it at the time.

    When I was in radio I used to M.C. at a comedy club. I felt at home with all the stories these guy's tell in the backroom. I kid you not, these guy's would have "one-up's manship" battles about the drugs they take for their neurosis'.

    Comedians aren;t the only ones that are flippo nuts either. Robert Young from "Father Knows Best" fame...BIG TIME depression, alcoholic, etc. Tried suicide on a number of ocassions. Came to Rock Island, Illinois where Fransiscan Hospital was and was committed for a while. His agent was from there. At the time Fransiscan was the leading hospital in the country for mental illness. Came back a couple times after that for alcohol treatment. He ended up donating tons of money to the mental health department and now it bears his name.

    Default Report: Chappelle in Surprise L.A. Gig

    Report: Chappelle in Surprise L.A. Gig
    Friday June 3 12:58 PM ET

    Is Dave Chappelle back? The AWOL comedian dropped in unannounced at two popular comedy clubs Thursday night, saying he had just arrived in Los Angeles and felt like performing, Daily Variety reported Friday.

    Chappelle served up some impromptu standup to stunned audiences at the Hollywood Improv and the Comedy Store, the trade paper said.

    Chappelle, 31, took off last month to South Africa for a "spiritual retreat," leaving his fans and even his agent and publicist wondering where he went.

    After Comedy Central announced that the planned May 31 debut of the third season of "Chappelle's Show" had been postponed, the magazine Entertainment Weekly reported that Chappelle had checked himself into a mental health facility in South Africa.

    But Chappelle denied checking into a mental facility or having a drug problem in an interview with Time magazine.

    Instead, he fled to stay with friends in Durban because he wasn't happy with the direction of the show, which is behind only "South Park" as Comedy Central's most-watched program.

    Calls to Chappelle's publicist and Comedy Central were not immediately returned Friday morning.

    An unnamed Comedy Central representative told Variety that network officials would be sitting down with Chappelle to talk business "really, really soon."

    I had just read his interview with Time mag and he sounded perfectly sane to me.

    Poor (? $) guy just needed to step back and reflect some on what's goin on with his life and with his show, from the sounds of his interview.

    Glad to see he's back.

    He's rich, beeaaawtch!!
