"I'm Rich BIATCH!" Remembering Chappelle's Show With Our Top Five Sketches

Last weekend, while flipping through all 10 channels of network television we landed on "The Racial Draft," a classic skit from the second season of Chappelle's Show--on KIAH-TV (Channel 39). Apparently the network has been airing back-to-back episodes of the groundbreaking comedy series from 12 a.m.-1 a.m. every Sunday, and the skits (although edited) remain shocking, relevant and really (really) funny.

Even though the show only aired for two seasons (116 sketches), it was nearly impossible to choose a top five--they're all just so damn good. With that in mind, we moved our focus to the second season--in our opinion, the better of the two.

In the words of the late Rick James, "Enjoy yourself, bitch."
