The career of Dave Chappelle has gone in some extreme directions over the years. But one of the first examples of his comedic gifts is the comedy Half Baked. The movie was first dismissed as a failure, but became a cult classic. Most performers don’t turn to method acting when appearing in a stoner comedy, however, a misunderstanding led to one of Chappelle’s co-stars attempting to act after getting high. 

The Dave Chappelle comedy ‘Half Baked’ is now a classic stoner movie

Chappelle made enough of a name for himself on the stand-up circuit to get his film Half Baked made when he was only 25. Co-written with his future Chappelle Show collaborator Neal Brennan, the movie follows Thurgood (Chappelle), Brian (Jim Breuer), and Scarface (Guillermo Diaz), as they attempt to raise money to get their friend Kenny (Harland Williams) out of jail after he accidentally kills a police horse by feeding it junk food. Their plan is to steal weed from a medical lab Thurgood works at and sell it to prospective buyers.
