Has Dave Chapelle always been this jacked? Somehow we really don't remember the comedian having biceps quite this big, but maybe we weren't paying close enough attention!

On Tuesday afternoon the 40-year-old funnyman left a meeting at Live Nation in Los Angeles, and aside from the cigarette hanging out of his mouth, he looked pretty good. After spending much of the last decade out of the public eye, Dave is kick-starting his career again with a series of shows this summer in New York's Radio City Music Hall.

Last summer, Dave performed at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival and at Funny Or Die’s traveling Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, so hopefully he's back for good this time!

As you might remember, Chappelle went to South Africa in 2005 right in the middle of the third season of Chappelle’s Show, which put a halt on production. He didn’t tell Comedy Central (or his friends!), and we haven't seen him on TV since then. But would he come back? We'd certainly love to see him return to the small screen...
