While The Lost Episodes of Chappelle' Show have had some funny moments, mostly they've just made us wonder whether Dave quit because of the race stuff or because he was just plain out of material. For the most part, the sketches have covered territory that was dealt with more effectively in years past. The "Race Pixy" skit that allegedly drove Dave to Africa wasn't any more offensive than past skits-it just wasn't as funny. And as Carlos Mencia proves, being both racially offensive and unfunny is a pretty brutal mixture.
On a certain level, the Lost Episodes are disappointing and prove that Dave is fallible, but it' also pretty admirable that he quit rather than work on a show that' creativity had been compromised. In honor of the balls that it took to walk away from $50 million and a once great show, CRACKED counts down the 11 best Chappelle' skits ever. The sketches are embedded below for you to watch. We rank our favorite moment, give you info you might not have known and discuss the lines that were bastardized by white culture. As you'll see, one of the Lost Episode sketches made it, but for the most part it' all the old classics for you to enjoy.
