Twitter is cracking up after Alex Trebek mentioned crack on Jeopardy! on Monday, and at the same time referenced one of the most popular characters from Chappelle’s Show, the lovable crackhead Tyrone Biggums.
The clue was, “Crack addict Tyrone Biggums was a recurring character on this sketch comedy series.” The answer of course was, “What is Chappelle’s Show.”Some fans were tickled by hearing say “crack addict"...

But fans of Chappelle’s Show and/or crack weren’t the only ones tweeting on Monday. Oscar nominee Kumail Nanjiani’s career reached new heights when he was also mentioned, though Trebek didn’t get his name quite right.
The clue was, “Zoe Kazan plays a girlfriend in a coma in this 2017 film co-starring & co-written by Kumail Nanjiani.” The answer was the movie Nanjiani’s received multiple writing nominations for, The Big Sick.
