Interview with Gayle King to air on March 20th on CBS This Morning.

Dave Chappelle walked away from his successful Comedy Central show 12 years ago at the height of its popularity and has since been living here in Yellow Springs and keeping a relatively low profile.

“At the end of the day, ultimately, I feel good about what I did,” Chappelle told King. “It wasn’t easy. And I do not recommend it. But it worked for me.”
