Rumors of a Chris Rock/Dave Chappelle stand-up tour have been circulating for over a year now, but it’s looking like more and more of a possibility after the two comedians performed together last night in New York and discussed the possibility onstage. The Comic’s Comic has an in-depth report about the duo’s unannounced dual stand-up performance at The Comedy Cellar after midnight last night. Chappelle took the stage for 40 minutes of solo stand-up (unannounced) before Rock hopped up. The two riffed together into the wee hours of the morning, and even ended up calling Arsenio Hall and Lenny Kravitz and texting Jay-Z to go get spaghetti with them in the middle of the night - a wacky idea Chappelle had.
Rock and Chappelle even ended up discussing the possibility of touring together while onstage. Here’s an excerpt (via The Comic’s Comic):
“Come out to Oakland,” Chappelle told Rock.”You should come down to West Palm,” Rock replied.Chappelle: “After next Tuesday, I’m free for like 11 years.”Rock said he has a new movie of his own he’s going to film later this spring and would be cutting it over the summer. “I’ve got time between now and the movie … By Halloween, I could do dates.”
