[video] Dave Chappelle on ATCQ, Saturday Night Live, and getting booed.

The funniest man on the planet Dave Chappelle speaks exclusively to Gayle King.

After what he calls a career “detour,” comedian Dave Chappelle is making a comeback with three new Netflix specials. In a rare interview, he tells “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King about the tipping point that made him “resolute” on his “Saturday Night Live” appearance last November: SNL’s first new show after President Donald Trump was elected into office.

I’m feeling how they shot this, it really captures the feeling of an old school Blaxploitation flick. Wasn’t that floored by Common‘s performance in Terminator:Salvation but I still do believe he has a future in Hollywood if only he can casted in a roll that is more familiar to his swag. I’m not buying into the tough guy image.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Internet comedy site Funny Or Die, supported by actor Will Ferrell and seeded by Sequoia Capital, has raised $3 million in cash from a single, undisclosed investor.

The financing also includes an additional $3 million commitment for “in-kind contributions for marketing, publicity and promotional support for programing,” according to a regulatory filing.

It is not clear if the regulatory financing augments a $15 million investment reported by Portfolio Magazine earlier this year, or if it is a tranche of that financing.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Funny Or Die also sold an equity stake of less than 10 percent to cable channel HBO during the summer, according to reports. That transaction may be what triggered the recent filing. The $3 million investment is the only filing the company has made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Continue reading

Lil Jon’s ‘A-Town’ Takes Over Funny or Die New Years Eve. Distinct hip hop voice Lil Jon new year’s eve debuts his animated series ‘Lil Jon’s A-Town’ on star actor/comedian Will Ferrell’s www.funnyordie.com.

Lil Jon reps call ‘Lil Jon’s A-Town’ “the wildest cartoon you gonna ever see. That’s A-Town where it goes down;” it goes down on Ferrell’s site as well as the self proclaimed “King of Crunk’s” myspace page @ myspace.com/liljonworld. Lil Jon previously appeared on funnyordie.com in a satirical skit called ‘Terminal Bling,’ in which the producer/rapper strips off his jewels to board a plane, only to have a suit and tie white guy come after him, bag the jewels and spit “urban slang” at passing ladies.

Ferrell’s “uncomfortably energetic” site, presented by Semi-Pro, is a youtube for the comedic spirit that allows users to sift through videos by voting either “funny” or “die.” Funnyordie.com was spawned by Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez Productions, young comedian Michael Kvamme and Silicon Valley web designer/entrepreneur Randy Adams.
