QuoteReplyTopic: Dave Chapelle Quits Act Posted: Aug 30 2013 at 7:58pm
So Dave Chapelle was doing standup in Hartford last night, ( I didn't/wasn't able to go) but when I turned on the radio this morning The Dj's were talking about how he walked off, insulted the crowd a lil bit and dropped his mic.. I watched a lil video and the white ppl crowd was annoying a fuk....smh
Here's a couple of the audience's pov's about what took place and a small clip:
Just watched Dave Chappelle quit stand up. Out in the Comcast Theater in
Hartford, Connecticut, shivering in the open air, I can’t think that
this is anything else. I felt this coming just five minutes after the
silver curtain had dropped dramatically, by which point the former
Comedy Central star had barely gotten any jokes out. We all knew it was
five minutes because, with an edge in his voice, Chappelle had ticked
off the time.
The Oddball "Funny or Die" tour was supposed to be Chappelle’s big
return to stand up (again). Shorty after taking the stage—to our massive
applause—someone in the front interrupted to ask if he was back for
real this time. He answered "Yes." We all cheered.
He had started with some Paula Deen jokes that went over well when he
had to stop again. Maybe it was his gratuitous use of the N-word to a
mostly White audience. Maybe it was the overpriced beer that, to my
amazement, everyone seemed to keep buying. Whatever it was, there was a
palpable change. The crowd got rowdier, louder, ruder. Folks started
calling out random references to his past work (he informed us that if
we ever see him in a Half Baked sequel, that means he's run completely
out of money) and, most bizarrely, his 2006 Oprah interview.
After engaging some of the heckling politely, Chappelle had enough.
"I’ve been up here a while now and I thought it was me but now I ‘m sure
it’s you. There is definitely something wrong with you." he told us. In
other words, 'shut up and let me perform.' Not many did. Finally, he
gave up and took his cigarettes and his water and sat on stage.
The crowd got worse. People were booing, jeering. I heard a woman yell
something that was drowned out by a guy near me screaming
“DAVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE” for the umpteenth time. But Dave hears her.
"Times like this, I wonder where Katt Williams is." He sips his water
and stares at us meaningfully. There is a hush. The jeers begin again.
When he decided he would not be doing the show, he responded to a voice
in the crowd: “I’m going to have to read about this sh*t for months.”
And he will—and none of the reports will be fair. They will include bare
facts; At the Hartford show, Dave Chappelle DID sit down and read an
excerpt from an audience member’s book. At the Hartford show, Dave
Chappelle DID give the crowd the middle finger and tell us that we
sucked ("You are booing yourself. I want you to go home and look in the
mirror and say 'boo,' that's how I feel about you.")
They claim they are never "that bad". When someone is all strung out on heroin and every other drug known to man they are never a thug or a menace. They are always just in need of help. Sit all the way down with that mess. Drunk hooligans.
