Dave Chappelle has the stretch and bounce of an elastic band pushed just shy of the breaking point. That goes not only for his beanpole physique but also for the breadth and range of his humor and sympathy. His superficially wayward yet dead-on aim makes him constantly surprising. What's most enveloping about him is his generosity of spirit. He's a small-D democrat, small-C catholic satirist of race. And he's a celebrant of all that's genuinely funky. When he forges an unexpected human connection, his face, which can seem as round and unformed as a newborn's, beams as powerfully as a lighthouse.

University officials recently suspended Park until the spring semester of 2008 for posting the ads, which some claim were racially offensive. (Park referred to Baltimore as an "hiv pit" and used terms like "hoochie hoops" and "bling."

A stunned 8-year-old girl stood shivering in the drive-through of a New Jersey burger and rib joint, powerful wind gusts threatening to send her sailing into the bitter cold air. Blood was splattered across her porcelain-white face and puffy pink winter coat. A bicycle with training wheels lay in a sad, crumpled heap beside her. She had just been hit by a car. On any other day, a scene like this would be the furthest thing from comical. But on Dave Chappelle's popular sketch series, Chappelle's Show (Wednesday nights at 10:30 on Comedy Central)

After 15 years of stand-up, Dane Cook has stepped out. He's the latest comic stud, a wild and crazy guy himself, a fixture on Comedy Central who is booked for three nights at Madison Square Garden next month. The Internet-friendly Cook is also shooting a TV pilot (a Curb Your Enthusiasm-like show) and plans to be a presenter at MTV's Video Music Awards tonight in Miami. "My manager's cell went off and I said, wait, don't tell me. Someone wants me to throw out the first pitch," says Cook.
