Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle Entertained Fans With Comedy ‘Social Experiment’ In New Orleans
The world needs laughter right now and there’s a strong possibility that two of our brightest comedians will come together for a major comedy tour. On Saturday night (Match 25), Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle went on stage together in New Orleans and held an impromptu comedy “social experiment.”
According to NOLA.com, Chappelle performed for about 30 minutes and then Rock came onstage and the two funnymen cracked jokes for another 60 minutes. It must have been fun.
Unfortunately, the media and fans in attendance were barred from shooting any type of footage of the comedy spectacle. Bummer. Here’s what NOLA.com reported:
Although the tour’s press restrictions prevent us from actually explaining much of what the rest of the night was like or anything Rock said, it’s safe to say Trump’s name wasn’t off limits. Or that of adult film star Alexis Texas. Or Rock’s divorce. Or the heat Chappelle caught for certain jokes from his Netflix specials.
The pair of comedians spent much of the night just riffing off each other and laughing at each other’s wisecracks, one of which left Rock spitting a sip of water across the stage as he momentarily lost control in laughter. Still, Chappelle gave his real host enough space for segments of his regular stand-up act to slip in to the show.
Close to the end of the night, Chappelle looked at his friend onstage and back out toward the audience before confessing, ‘This might be one of the flyest things I’ve ever been a part of.’”
Rock would later post a few photos from the show on his Instagram page. His caption says it all: "Watch the Throne 2. Total Blackout Tour 2017.
We have to say that, arguably, Rock and Chappelle are the Jay Z and Kanye West of comedy. There is no word if the dynamic duo will take their "social experiment" on the road, but we hope so. America needs it.
