Among today's comedians, Dave Chappelle seems to be the one making the biggest imprint. And not because he caused a big stir when he walked away from a $50-million contract with Comedy Central last year. Chappelle's got a new documentary in theaters, a hip-hop concert film called Block Party. He's still doing stand-up. And DVDs of his cable TV show are selling at a fast pace.
