Dave Chappelle Makes Cover Of Prince’s New Single

Dave Chappelle is greatly missed these days, as he’s been out of the public eye for several years following his departure from the comedy life in 2006. But he’s slowly beginning to make a comeback, and Prince has a little something to do with it.

The Purple One tweeted the cover art for his new single, “Breakfast Can Wait”, which features a photo of Chappelle dressed as Prince for the “Chappelle’s Show” sketch that most of us have been quoting from since it aired. The tweet featured links to stories about the single so that his followers would know it’s not a joke, but even if it was…it’s pretty rad.

The sketch is one of the most popular ones from Chappelle’s days on Comedy Central; in it, Charlie Murphy talks about one of his “True Hollywood Stories”, which involved meeting Prince in a club and ending up at his house later to play basketball and have a pancake breakfast. So, fittingly enough, the new cover art shows Chappelle dressed as the iconic singer and holding a big plate of pancakes.

So far, Chappelle hasn’t commented on the single, but it’s probably safe to say he’s a little flattered. Check out the sketch, and the cover art, below.

    Dear David- Laughing at you, or laughing with you, it doesn’t matter. I understand why you split. It’s cool. I totally get it. You help me get through my patheitc little life with your very itellectual comedy. Nobody- or at least very few- can make me feel as happy as you do. Thank you for making me laugh. You are a very intelligent man, in a very stupid world, and I know how hard it can be. Not every day in our life is going to be easy, but I would like it very much if I could watch your work, and share the joy that your career brings to you.

    OMFG this is HILARIOUS. It’s about @#$%ing time Prince find himself a sense of humor.

  • Shawn

    Lmao. Again. Every time I hear Prince I can only think of Dave running the V with his fingers accross his eyes, and start laughing. Great for the artist formally known as, to roll with it.

    That show was the best on TV for 2 years.

    You guys are idiots. Chappelle is never missed since he is in daily syndication. Better do some research before you make ridiculous claims. He’s never left the comedy business and has performed live ever since the show ended. He’s been in the business for over 25 years and will always be an icon, buddy.
