To anyone who’s lived under a rock for the past two decades or so, Dave Chappelle is a comedian who rose to fame with his standup specials, cemented his legacy with 'The Chappelle Show' and continues to push back at the society with his hard-hitting jokes, rooted in the current popular culture and political climate.
There’s never been someone as unique as Dave and had the sustained level of success he’s been privy to. The man left millions of dollars on the table because he wanted to take a break, then came back with Netflix, who paid him $40 million for three specials. Dave Chappelle is not only unique, but he is also relevant, and he’s managed to stay relevant after years of hiatus.

But Dave is not only known for his comedic chops, but he is also known for the way he was able to raise a family. A family who bear the brunt of his jokes sometimes, becoming the punch line in his set and also always motivating him, but no matter how much he jokes about his Asian wife or his two sons, there is one person who is exempt from all joke, his daughter Sonal Chappelle. Here’s everything you need to know about the daughter and youngest child of Dave Chappelle and his wife, Elaine Chappelle.
She is the Third of Three Kids; the Only Daughter Though
Sonal is the last of the Chappelle kids, and she is the youngest, which is why she is the most pampered one also. She is not only the loved kid, but Sonal also does not get made fun of by her father during his comedy sets.
Sonal is Already a Movie and TV Star…Well, Kind Of
Dave Chappelle is someone who’s conquered all forms of the entertainment business; he is a successful comedian, actor, and even a singer who appeared on the cover of a Prince song. But other than Dave, none of the other Chappelle kids have taken the steps in the show business except Sonal.
After the 2016 Presidential election, the first 'SNL' was hosted by Dave Chappelle, and on a somber night, the comedian did not pelt the President with insults; instead, he asked the American people to give him a chance. It was a drastic change of tune from what we were all expecting, but still, he tried to unite instead of divide.

But just because the monologue was about unity doesn’t mean the whole show was going to be the same. Well, he did take some shots at the president, and in one of the sketches, the comedian used his own daughter to drive a point home. It was a funny segment and the first brush of acting for Sonal.
Sonal, though, was not done with one appearance as the daughter of Dave Chappelle again appeared alongside her father in the beloved movie 'A Star is Born.' Sonal was there when Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s character get married sitting alongside her real-life father. It seems, Dave Chappelle’s daughter is destined for the show business when it is all said and done.
