Last Thursday, Dave Chappelle made headlines when he cut his set short in Hartford, Connecticut, walking off stage early after several members of the audience rudely screamed out Chappelle’s Show lines at the top of his show and refused to calm down. Since then, all of Chappelle’s tour shows over the weekend have been received well and without incident. The comedian is currently headlining Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival tour, which has taken him to Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Detroit since the Hartford incident.
The tour has been taking extra precautions since Hartford, like banning cell phone use and posting signs that read “texting, tweeting, heckling, talking, cameras or recording devices of any kind” would result in being kicked out of the show. Reviews of Chappelle’s performances on the tour’s Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Detroit stops have been unanimously positive, proving that the Hartford incident was just a fluke caused by a disrespectful audience.
