Comedian Dave Chappelle hosts this sketch-comedy show that parodies many of the nuances of race and culture.
Dave Chappelle left the show abruptly during filming of the third season. He later stated in interviews that he never intended to make a third season but he felt pressured by Comedy Central and his co-workers to continue. Comedy Central pulled the show from its 2005 schedule and decided to shelve the completed sketches in hopes that Chappelle would return to finish the season. Chappelle stated in interviews that if Comedy Central aired the episodes he would definitely not return to the show. After negotiations with Chappelle stalled, Comedy Central decided to repackage some of the completed sketches and air them in 2006. Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings took over the hosting duties.

Episode #204 began with the following disclaimer: "This episode of Chappelle's Show has been deemed more offensive than usual. Viewer discretion is advised." This was followed by a second screen: "Enjoy yourself, bitches. It's a celebration."
Most of the musical performances could not be included in the DVD release due to music licensing issues.
