Comedian Dave Chapelle Hospitalized


Dave Chapelle was hospitalized over the July 14 weekend for exhaustion.

Publicist Carla Sims said the 33-year-old comedian checked himself in to an emergency room on Saturday and was released a few hours later. "It was exhaustion; he had been traveling," she said. "He's fine."

She declined to release the name of the hospital or other details. In May, 2005, Chapelle walked away from a $50 million deal to continue his show on thehealth center while away. He has since returned to performing standup comedy.

In April, he broke endurance records at the Laugh Factory comedy club in Los Angeles, performing a standup routine for more than six hours.
