Pictures of famous quitters -- Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle was the star of Comedy Central's sketch comedy series Chappelle's Show and after two seasons had signed a lucrative contract reportedly worth $55 million to continue production for two more years. Season 3 of Chappelle's Show was scheduled to air on May 31, 2005, but in that month, Chappelle left during production, reportedly unhappy with the show's direction and unhappy with pressure from network executives over the show's content. Chappelle left the United States to visit South Africa.COMEDY CENTRAL
