Dave Chappelle explains why 'Key & Peele' hurts his feelings

Comedian Dave Chappelle, in advance of his first two comeback stand-up specials arriving on Netflix on Tuesday, did a rare, far-reaching interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King, who visited him in the tiny OH town where he lives. He was at a heightening time in his career, with the success and popularity of Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show. But in your mind you're like, "That b**** is insane". He explained that it was a format that required constant commitment, and resistance from network pressure to make the show more conventional.

Chappelle had it all when he chucked it and fled to South Africa in 2005.

His highly-anticipated Netflix stand-up special will be available to stream Tuesday (March 21). "At the end of the day, it's so. you don't have that much control over it". "I think there's a speculation that Dave doesn't like 'Key & Peele, '" says King (7:37).

Dave Chappelle counts himself a "fan" of Comedy Central's Key & Peele, but believes he deserves some credit on the series. That I was in this very successful place, but the emotional content of it didn't feel like anything I imagined success should feel like. "You just try to conduct yourself as best as you can".

"I was talkin' to a guy... he basically said to me that comedy is a reconciliation of paradox", Chappelle said. "I found a way that - to do what I liked to do and avoid some of the parts of it that I was uncomfortable with", he said.

"I've been all over the country, touring all my life". "He let me see some of his process. And I think it's awesome that the millennials and younger people may have gotten reintroduced to Prince through a comedy sketch". I had time to stop if someone said they liked me. On the guitar pick, it said, "Love God.' And, you know, she had been in the front row".

When King said that decision was "so much bigger" than money, Chappelle agreed, referencing a nature documentary to drive home his point.

Chappelle also blasted the duo for copying his show, during the Roots Picnic festival in NY last summer saying, "I've watching Key and Peele do my show the last five f*cking years".
