* ArtistDisillusionment / CreatorBacklashCreatorBacklash: As he said in response to fans constantly quoting his most famous line out of context: -->'''Chappelle''': "You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid."

* {{Defictionalization}}: Sort of. The "Trading Spouses" sketch was meant to make fun of the RealityTV craze. A little while later ABC announced that they were going to do an American version of ''WifeSwap''. A couple of weeks before it's debut, Fox premiered ''Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy'', and ABC accused them of ripping off their show.

** The famous Wayne Brady ep opens with a prologue segment in which Dave Chappelle "quits" the show due to the insane filming schedule and ExecutiveMeddling. Even on the DVDCommentary, he admits that the schedule line was very true.

* LifeImitatesArt: The final skit of the show's "third season" (filmed before Dave left) has Dave meeting with [[Film/TheWizardofOz The All Powerful Show Business]], who offers him various ways to capitalize on his popularity (i.e. Dave Chappelle cereal, a Lil Jon movie and an {{MTV}} Cribs appearance). The skit ends with Dave walking away from show business. ** Similarly, after appearing on the series, Wayne Brady landed a multi-episode stint on the FX show "Dirt", playing an AffablyEvil [[TheDragon employee]] for a murderous rap mogul who threatens to castrate one of the cast members and force-feed them their own penis. Not to mention breaking a basketball player's kneecaps. ** The famous Wayne Brady ep opens with a prologue segment in which Dave Chappelle "quits" the show due to the insane filming schedule and ExecutiveMeddling.

* CreatorBacklash: Dave left the show mostly due to the way he felt the racial humor had gone, the fanbase that refused to stop repeating his famous line and how Comedy Central treated the show. This is Chappelle's spin on it, however. The fact that he had gone from stuff like...''HalfBaked''... to becoming a cultural icon in less than five years might have been [[CreatorBreakdown a bit too much for him to take in all at once]]. ** Dave also said that he didn't believe the third season could possibly live up to the hype of his 50 Million dollar contract, it should be noted that he tried to keep the contract a secret from the media and was upset to see the headline in the newspaper.
