Dave Chapelle is not only about the laughs – the stand-up comedian / actor definitely has a serious side; so serious in fact that he rarely if ever talks about it. Back in 1998, the charismatic actor who rocks on “Comedy Central” converted to Islam, but he avoided the topic of his faith in his interviews numerous times. Not only that, but David’s religious beliefs are never the topic of conversation in his stage skits. A few years back, the now 43 year-old actor explained why the topic of his faith is not up for discussion:  “I don’t normally talk about my religion publicly because I don’t want people to associate me and my flaws with this beautiful thing. And I believe it is beautiful if you learn it the right way.”
