Video: Watch Dave Chappelle At Age 19 On "Star Search"

Some funny men take time to find their comedy groove, but Dave Chappelle seems to have had it before he was even was a man. 

In this video from a 1993 episode of Star Search, Ed McMahon introduces 19-year-old Chappelle as "the youngest comedian to ever appear on Star Search history. He tells us he's also appearing in court." Chappelle then goes on to deliver a perfectly polished routine that is amazing in just how Chappelle-like it really is. Rather than adopting a stage persona over time, Chappelle's delivery and tone seem to be something he had all along.

We believe they call that "talent".
