Dave Chappelle Gave a Rare Interview to a Local News Station in Minneapolis


“I prefer the smaller venues […] because you can kind of experience the crowd more, they can experience you more. I’ve always kind of preferred having it in smaller venues. I have friends who are comedians that are good at doing, you know, rock star-sized venues and they have the kind of act for it. But I like when you use the word intimate because I feel like that’s kind of what, ideally, it should be. I know this is not a very funny interview but I’m hilarious, you’re just going to have to take my word for it.”

- Dave Chappelle sat down with his friend Reg Chapman, a reporter at WCCO in Minneapolis, to talk about the Twin Cities, going back on the road, and that show in Hartford.
