Burr talks about how he just likes to make appearances in TV shows (he was in 3 episodes of Chappelle's Show)
The show opens with Chappelle being introduced over a riff from the song Hip Hop, from the album Let's Get Free by Dead Prez. Chappelle performs a short stand up in front of a live audience, which serves to introduce the upcoming skit. The focus then shifts to a live sketch that appears on a screen that is to Chappelle's left (or right for the first episode). The show is notorious for its handling of the topic of sexuality and Chappelle's casual usage of racist epithets. The show also handles such topics as prostitution, the entertainment industry, gun violence, numerous drug references (particularly marijuana, PCP, and crack cocaine) and music, all performed in a comedic fashion with a touch of antagonism. The show then ends with a musical performance by an alternative hip hop artist.
