Dave Chappelle's sense of humor appears to have a cut-off point and it looks like he reached that point with the hackling fans in Hartford who offered up too much feed-back. The funny-man walked off the stage in Hartford Thursday night leaving some to wonder if Chappelle doesn't have a sense of humor when it comes to the audience feedback, suggests E News on Aug. 30.
It was during Thursday night's Funny or Die Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival in Hartford, Conn., that Chappelle showed his disapproval of the fans' behavior. During his standup comedy routine the fans sent out a series of cheers and boos. While some are describing this as Chappelle having a tantrum, he simply turned to the audience sating "Thank you. Good night."
Chappelle's then walked off the stage after placing his mic down. His exit from the stage was accompanied by the new song by Kanye West, "New Slaves." The applause volume went from high to low in seconds and Chappelle was now being booed for not finishing his set.
Hartford's Oddball festival posted a tweet for the Hartford audience:
"Hey Hartford! Pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!"
Comedian Patton Oswalt tweeted of the incident:
"Dear Dave Chappelle's fans: He's one of the best comedians working, & you're not letting him do what he loves. Stop being a--holes."
It's hard to believe that there's a standup comedian alive today that hasn't experienced this kind of heckling in their career. Maybe Chappelle has paid his dues with experiencing the heckling in the past, after all he's top notch when it comes to comedians today. Was the Connecticut audience rude? Watch the video above and decide.
