(Okay, it may not be the best EVER, but it was certainly the best Sunday night so far this year.)
Chocolate Sundaes is always fun and you’re guaranteed to get your laugh on and see a fair share of surprise celebrities gracing the audience. I don’t go nearly as often as I’d like, but I was there with my dear friend and fam Cortney Gee, who is an hilarious comedian and was one of the acts scheduled to perform.
As soon as Cortney finished his set, Chris and his partner Pookey Wigginton returned to the stage and began casually talking to the audience, as they usually do. Then Pookey suddenly announced a surprise: Dave Chappelle was about to take the stage. We (the audience) went straight bonkers. Seconds later, there he was, Mr. “I’m Rich, Bitch!” himself…
…on stage, smoking cigarettes and ripping funny after funny as we sat there simultaneously mesmerized and busting up in hysterics. (All I can say is “Yogi Coudoux.” That was the running theme of his entire hilarious act.)
Chappelle was up there for a good long time, giving us more laughs than we could have hoped for…
…in addition to getting quite frank about what ran him off Comedy Central. (Not the rumored Dark Crusaders, he clarified. “They weren’t dark at all,” he said. “In fact, they were quite light. It was white people.”)
Afterwards, Cortney took a picture with the highly-likable Mr. Chappelle.
…and then Dave Chappelle takes the stage?
It doesn’t get any more magical than that.
