Comedian Dave Chappelle Comes In. 08/26/04. 8:45am Howard had Dave Chappelle come in before he went to break. He said that Dave turned down doing the Video Music Awards which was a good idea because people come off bad on that show. Dave said there was just too much pressure to do that so he had to turn it down. Howard talked to Dave about how well his show ''Chappelle's Show'' is doing on Comedy Central (Chappelle's Show - Season 1 now available). Howard read that he signed a deal for $50 million to stay on the station but Dave said he hasn't signed it yet. Howard told him not to sign it because he could do even better. Howard said his kids are really into Dave's show on Comedy Central and he brags to them that he knows Dave. Dave told Howard and Robin about how he had just spoken to Rick James about 2 weeks before he died. He does an impression of Rick on his show so Rick was in touch with him about that. Dave said that Rick asked him not to cover certain things about his life on the show. Dave said he first met Rick back about 10 years ago and saw him just hanging out at the front desk at a hotel talking to people. Dave said he doesn't run characters into the ground so he probably won't do the Rick James thing much. Dave told Howard he doesn't know how he does the whole fame thing because it's crazy. Howard said he doesn't do it, he just hides all the time. Howard told Dave that he had to take a break before talking to him more. He gave him a plug for his upcoming Showtime special ''For What It's Worth'' which is coming in September. Dave is also going to be appearing on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. He's not hosting, just making an appearance. Howard took a couple of phone calls including one from Rev. Bob Levy (revboblevy.net) who asked why one of his jokes ended up on his TV show. Dave said he didn't steal anything but Bob said it's his writers who are getting lazy and stealing his jokes. The joke was about going home to ''beat his dick like it owes him money.'' Dave said he and his writers don't steal jokes and arguing over that is crazy. Howard jokingly said that Rev. Bob Levy has been doing Rick James for years as well. He went to break right after that.
