The Beginning Of Intervention
“Is this the 5 o’clock free crack giveaway?” says Tyrone Biggums as he bursts through the door of an intervention to get him off of drugs. Biggums is hopelessly addicted to crack and is pretty much willing to do whatever it takes to get some.
Biggums is tireless, eager, and resourceful. He finds a way to escape his intervention and returns to his drug-addled adventures. This comedic take on such a dramatic situation was rarely seen on TV at that time.
But somehow the writers of Chappelle’s Show magically predicted that this type of show would be a hit.
Two years after Tyrone Biggums’ intervention on the sketch comedy show, A&E premiered a program called, Intervention.
