* HeyItsThatGuy / RetroactiveRecognition: Cee Lo Green performs on one episode, introduced as just "Cee Lo" and ''long'' before the release of "Fuck You". That appearance happened almost a [[OlderThanTheyThink decade]] after his first album was released.
** Dave was fond of casting other comics in his sketches; his HalfBaked costars show up a few times and Bill Burr (aka [[Series/BreakingBad Kuby]]) makes a couple appearances as well.
** [[Series/TheOfficeUS Rashida]] [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Jones]] show up in a few minor roles, before anyone really knew who she was.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The [=DVDs=] lack about half of the live musical performances. However, since ComedyCentral reruns the show periodically, it shouldn't be too hard to find this material. The [=DVDs=], despite being huge sellers, ultimately fell out of print for a couple of years. In 2012 Comedy Central reissued the entire series as a box set.

* ArtistDisillusionment / CreatorBacklash

to:

* 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.
