Dave Chapelle's Family Is as Elusive as the Award-Winning Comedian


Dave Chappelle is an instantly-recognizable comedy figure. Between his time on Saturday Night Live, Chapelle's Show, Netflix specials, stand-up comedy tours, and more, Dave has been a huge name in the world of humor for quite some time. His family, however, largely remains a mystery.

Back in October, Dave Chappelle was awarded the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor — one of the highest honors in the industry. Those in attendance were treated to a rare glimpse of Dave's family, as the comedian delivered his acceptance speech alongside his wife and children. Considering Dave keeps many aspects of his personal life on tight lockdown, plenty of fans were likely intrigued to see his family standing there as he accepted the award. And considering the ceremony aired on PBS on Jan. 7, hoards of fans likely had a similar reaction to seeing Dave's family.
