TIL Dave Chappelle guest starred on Home Improvement.
I watched a ton of that show growing up and never made the connection.
Anyone know what the show was like? If it was really cheesy but got popular, Dave Chappelle would've been the black Bob Saget.
Jim Breuer was on Howard this week talking about this. He said Dave would mockingly call Tim Allen "Toolman" in front of the studio audience.
Also, it was originally supposed to be Breuer and Chappelle as the duo, but Breuer got dumped (even after appearing on the cover TV Guide for it).
Thank god that show got canceled. Imagine if we got 18 years of home improvement Dave Chappelle.
There was a time when Dave was in a whole lot of pilots, none of which except Buddies got picked up for any extra episodes. maybe that's why he named his company Pilot Boy Productions -- you can see their vanity card at the end of Chappelle Show episodes, the card shows Dave in chains but holding some money too
TIL there was a spin off from Home improvement or whatever.
I think the first time I saw Chappelle was in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I had no idea who he was at the time.
Pretty sure he talks about this in season 1 of chapelle show, but maybe it was an older stand up special.
You heard Jim talk about this on Stern, yes?
