When I did Chappelle’s Show, there were certain conventions of the show that the network resisted. I fought the network very hard so that those conventions could come to fruition. So like the first episode, I do that black white supremacist sketch. And it’s like, ‘Well, that’s 10 minutes long. It should be five minutes long.’ Why should it be five minutes long? Like, these types of conventions. I fought very hard. … So when I watch Key & Peele and I see they’re doing a format that I created, and at the end of the show, it says, ‘Created by Key & Peele,’ that hurts my feelings.
Does Dave Chappelle deserve credit for 'Key & Peele'?
Chappelle definitely paved the way, but Key and Peele deserve props for continuing on a similar comedy trajectory.
Dave Chappelle whole act was stolen by key and peele but, we really missed the chappelle show, and they did they best to rebirth that for us
