Comic genius Dave Chappelle takes his explosive humor and raw energy on the road in a freewheeling and heartwarming journey from small-town Ohio to the vibrant streets of New York City in "Dave Chappelle's Block Party," coming to DVD June 13, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Available for the first time in an unrated, extended DVD version, "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" features over 20 minutes of additional material not shown in theaters plus more than 45 minutes of bonus features that give viewers a chance to go behind-the-scenes of the most outrageous event of the decade. Directed by Academy Award(R) winner Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"), "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" follows the funnyman as he treats a Brooklyn neighborhood and a group of out-of-towners to a hilarious, no-holds barred, once-in-a-lifetime celebration. The unforgettable daylong party that results is loaded with humor, as well as a historic showcase of today's most influential musical artists, including Kanye West, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Common, Jill Scott, the Roots plus the legendary Fugees, who reunite for the first time in eight years! "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" is available in Unrated and Rated DVD versions; both are priced at $29.98.

Irreverent, innovative and brilliant, Dave Chappelle revolutionized television comedy with the gleefully subversive humor of the Emmy(R)-nominated "Chappelle's Show" on Comedy Central. On the home entertainment front, "Chappelle's Show: Season One" and "Chappelle's Show: Season Two" have become two of the three best-selling TV DVDs of all time.
