Watch Dave Chappelle Have an Onstage Meltdown in Hartford, Connecticut
After eight years staying largely out of the spotlight, performing only the occasional small show, Dave Chappelle is stepping back into the mainstream by headlining the Funny or Die Oddball Festival. Unfortunately, four days in, Chappelle doesn’t seem to be doing so well.
Apparently, on August 29, 2013, the heckling in Hartford, Connecticut was too much for him to overcome, and an incredibly awkward situation played out. Several minutes into his routine, Chappelle stopped telling jokes and made uncomfortable chit-chat, read a book that someone handed him, and sat on a stool and smoked cigarettes, telling the crowd to go home, look in the mirror, and boo themselves.
Anyway, watch the crowd videos below, and bring on the amateur psychoanalysis!
