After eight largely Chappelle-free years, youd think comedy fans would be eager to hear what the guy had to say in his new standup routine. By EWs own account, spectators in Austin certainly were: When Dave Chappelle first took the stage at Funny or Dies Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, those present gave the comic a standing ovation before he even began his set.
Alas, that was Texas and this is Connecticut. Last night in Hartford, a noisy, unruly crowd prompted Chappelle to pause his set, ultimately walking off stage to a chorus of boos.
I'm not saying, I'm just saying.
Couldn’t get the video to play.
These regressives cant even stomach a BLACK man making fun of his own kind.
Don’t see why people think that a stand-up comedy show is some sort of 2-way dialogue. They make their bucks by doing their routine only, and when idiots are shouting, or trying to be part of the act, they throw off the performer, who actually structures their set from start to finish. They lose focus, and the whole thing comes off looking bad, giving them a bad reputation of not being able to preform. If you look like you cant keep control and put butts in seats, you don’t get hired no matter how famous you are.
Can I say, he was thin skinned???
Everything is rasssssissst these days.
Looks like it has been removed.
Go to YouTube and type in Bill Burr Philadelphia Incident - he took care of those hecklers!
I watched the video. You are correct. They wanted to be in the show. I don't blame him.
A couple of videos at this following link:
He did his contractual 25 minutes albeit not his comedy routine by filling up the time
with chat, smoking a cigarette, etc. after which he departed.
The video omits what led up to his commentary.
Thus, it is impossible to say whether it was the audience or the comedian who was at fault.
My daughter was at the show in Hartford. She and I both agree that Chapelle is a very funny man but he has had some emotional/mental problems. She said the crowd was noisy but not, at first otherwise rude. Chapelle needs to get a tougher shell and I wish him well.
I know nothing about his politics nor do I think that’s all that important in this context.
That is stand-up comedian 101: How to handle hecklers
Dave must have been saying the truf about Bruthas and Liberals.
One of Dave’s best:
I really enjoy Bill Burr. His Monday morning podcast is must listening for me.....
I did stand-up for many years (semi-retired now due to health)and the way to deal with any heckler is:
1st time: ignore them
2nd time: politely remind them that the audience is there to see the performers, not them.
3rd time: Destroy them. (Not hard to do since they are already idiots)
Go home audience. You are drunk!
He could take some lessons from the master...
I didn’t hear anything that a seasoned comedian should have had any trouble handling. Problem is chapel lie has a messiah complex
“Ladies and gentlemen, Reggie has left the building.”
Don Rickles knew how to handle hecklers. And he was actually unlike the current crop of alleged comedians. Same with Sam Kinison. He always had hecklers on drugs. Rodney Dangerfield’s hecklers might be mafia so he had to be careful with them but he knew how to deal w them
LOL! Those Niggars sure were funny!
Yeah, some very funny stuff. Since we thought it funny, are we racists? Was Chappelle a racist for participating in the skit? How about the whites involved? The network that aired it? The person/s who wrote it? YouTube for making it available? For those that missed it the skit starts at 1:30.
