DAVE CHAPPELLE teamed up with CHRIS ROCK in a Stand Up Show, WHEN they both joked about their recent attacks on the STAGE.
Dave Chappelle joined Chris Rock in a stand-up show, where the duo joked about their recent attacks on stage.
Chappelle secretly performed at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles Thursday (May 5), two days after he was attacked during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl. The suspect, 23-year-old Isaiah Lee, has been charged with four counts of misconduct.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chappelle entered Rock within ten minutes of their performance, in which they performed in front of celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.
Chappelle and Rock, who beat Will Smith at the Oscars in March, made their attacks light. “At least someone slapped you on a note!” Chappelle joked. “I was slapped at the butt with leaves in his hair.”
In response, Rock said, “I was struck by the softest n **** that ever rapped.”
Later in the series, Chappelle recalled meeting the alleged attacker after the incident. Based on Chappelle’s account, it seems that Lee was trying to draw attention to his grandmother, who was forced to leave her neighborhood because of sex.
Rock entered Chappelle on stage shortly after the attack took place on Tuesday (May 3), where he apparently grabbed the microphone and joked, “Was that Will Smith?”
Since Rock confronted Smith at the Oscars, the actor has resigned from the Academy and has been banned from attending the ceremony for 10 years.
Announcing his resignation, Smith said: “My actions at the 94th Academy Awards were horrific, painful and unacceptable. There is a long list of people who have hurt me and include Chris, his family, many of my friends and my dear relatives, all in the presence of the House of Commons, and the global audience at home.
“I pledged the trust of the Academy. I took the nominees and other winners for their opportunities to celebrate and celebrate for their great work. The Academy returns to the incredible work it does to support creativity and art in filmmaking.”
