Dave Chappelle net worth: Dave Chappelle is an American comedian, actor, screenwriter, and producer who has a net worth of $20 million. Dave Chappelle was raised in Washington, DC and attended the Duke Ellington School of the Arts before moving to New York City to pursue a career in comedy. He performed at the Apollo Theater's Amateur Night and soon made a name for himself on the New York comedy circuit, and made his film debut at the age of twenty-three in the 1993 Mel Brooks comedy Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Chappelle then took minor film roles and attempted several failed television pilots before launching his own series, Chappelle's Show, on Comedy Central in 2003. The show ran for two successful seasons and was nominated for two Emmy Awards before Chappelle abruptly left during production of the third season, though Comedy Central later aired the episodes created without him. In 2004, Michel Gondry directed Dave Chappelle's Block Party, a documentary about a rap concert hosted by Chappelle in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, which was accompanied by a number of rap and hip-hop performances, including the reunion of The Fugees. Chappelle is no longer active in television or film, and lives with his wife and two sons in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
