Dave Chappelle Sneaked Up Unannounced Onstage Joins Chris Rock and Kevin Hart in NYC
The 48-year-old comedian surprised the audience by appearing unannounced onstage smoking a cigarette to perform with Chris Rock and Kevin Hart during their comedic double act at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The audience welcomed him with the thunder of claps whenever he brought up the topic of ‘cancel culture,’ during his act.
He ‘had to sneak my way in here,’ as he was forced to move a Minneapolis show amid backlash last week. He also brought up the topic of the Netflix special, The Closer, where he targeted transgender people and shared with the audience, “despite what you may have read about in the news, I’m okay, and I appreciate the support.” He further added that he “gets it” however, “I already spent the money.”
He also mentioned the on-stage attacker incident that happened at the Hollywood Bowl in early May and blamed his bodyguards for “wearing dress shoes on the job,” and “sliding all over the place like at a bowling alley.”
