DAVE CHAPPELLE: NEEDS STIMULUS MONEY?

If  a Los Angeles comedy club owner has his way, part of President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package will go to comedian Dave Chappelle. Jamie Masada of the Laugh Factory says he wants to start a comedy tour to visit the nation’s most economically depressed area.

 The proposed tour would travel the country by bus and hand out sandwiches and coffee in a “town hall setting.” Masada says several big name comedians including Chappelle, Dane Cook and Paul Rodriguez have already agreed to participate in the tour. He needs $700,000 to “gas up the buses” to make it happen. Why would the country want to give money to a comedian (Chappelle) who walked out on a $50 million contract from Comedy Central? Simple, to make poor people laugh.

Masada says he realizes his proposed project is way down on the list for stimulus funding, pointing out he doesn’t have any lobbyists. However, he says he’s already written President Obama and “Nancy-what’s-her-name (Pelosi)” about the project.

You can go to the Laugh Factory website and sign a petition for Congress to fund Masada’s “Economic Cheer-Up” package.
