RGIII Snuck In An Unreal Reference To ‘Chappelle’s Show’ Legend Tyrone Biggums During The BYU-Baylor Broadcast

RGIII Snuck In A Tyrone Biggums Joke During The BYU-Baylor Game

Comedy Central


If you weren’t around at the time, it’s actually quite difficult to describe what a phenomenon Chappelle’s Show was when it first hit Comedy Central back in the early 2000s. Similar to the likes of Anchorman, teenagers and adults alike would spend hours on end watching the series and quoting it back to each other. Even to this day, 20 years later, phrases like “F**k yo couch!!!” remain staples of the pop cultural lexicon.

Similar to the likes of Chappelle’s iconic and aforementioned Rick James sketch, the crack head character of Tyrone Biggums also remains ever present in the minds of the cultural consciousness, as evidenced by RGIII’s sly and hilarious reference to the character during Saturday night’s college football game between Baylor and BYU.

Put it like this: Tyrone Biggums has been around so long that Joe Rogan appeared in one of the sketches as the host of Fear Factor. Remember when Joe Rogan was simply the host of Fear Factor? Oh, how times have changed. Except, of course, the love people still have for Chappelle’s Show
