Dave Chappelle on Being Yourself

Fame = Success = Happiness, right?

Apparently, not for legendary comic, Dave Chappelle. He elegantly sums this all up in a few sentences here. My favorite part:

There you have it, wisdom from Dave Chappelle. Be a self-observer, and if you're not happy, do something about it. Even if everyone says you should be happy. Turns out, that's not enough.

Don't know who Dave Chappell is? Allow me to introduce you. I haven't seen a whole lot of his work, but of what I have seen, this is my favorite routine:
