9. Dave Chappelle – Muslim
Dave was raised in Washington, DC. In the capital of the United States he attended the Duke Ellington School of the Arts before he made the step to New York City. Overthere Dave started a career in comedy and became highly succesful. In 2005 he suddenly left his popular show, and went on a spiritual retreat in Africa. Shortly after he told Time in 2005 that normally he doesn’t like to talk about his religion publicly, because he does not want people to associate him and his jokes with the beautiful thing called Islam. Dave, as he said in the same interview, believes that the Islam is a beautiful religion if people learn it the right way. (Image: nypost.com)
