I'm Rich, *****

Dave Chappelle must not know what hit him. He is slated to make up to $50 million for the next two seasons of his show and possibly more depending on DVD sales.

Dave Chappelle has signed a massive deal with Comedy Central that will return the comedian's hit series to the network for two more seasons.

Sources familiar with the deal indicate it could be worth about $50 million, vaulting Chappelle, 30, into the rarefied realm of television's top earners. The new contract is believed to mark not only a steep increase for Chappelle as star, writer, co-executive producer and co-creator of "Chappelle's Show," but more significantly, reward him with a hefty chunk of the series' robust DVD sales.

He is one of the three anchors of the Comedy Central lineup, along with South Park and one of my other favorite shows, The Daily Show. $500,000 and episode is big time, which just goes to show hard work and perseverance pay off.

Big ups to the DC native.
