Yesterday, we told you about Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock performing a set together at New York’s Comedy Cellar. Well, last night, the two men kicked it up a notch or four. This time they were joined onstage by Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans, Bill Bellamy, and Questlove. Questlove explained what went down in an Instagram caption:
“I was working on the other side of the world when suddenly I got a “get yo arse down here NOW!!!!!” text. Sure enough I made it just in time to see the best night ever at the comedy cellar: Hannibal [Buress] was on 1st, then Chapelle did an amazing off the top bit about what life will be like in a South African jail with prosthetic legs…and the pope quitting his career too. & then the floodgates opened: Hart riffed on Spilling drinks on Hov then everyone got in a cipher doing a mini roast/dozens/lovefest about each other. It was honest to god like watching the comic version of “scenario” or “the symphony” jokes and punchlines were flying fast. Stories of way back when was told. And I had the best seat in the house (Dave told me to play piano….but I took the bench just to get a good view) amazing night watching #themaster5”
Questlove has tons of great photos from the night over on his Twitter. Check back tomorrow, when these men are joined onstage by Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor’s ghost.
