At a comedy show in L.A. last night someone rushed the stage and tackled Dave Chappelle, before getting the beat down of a lifetime…
Comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage at the Hollywood Bowl Tuesday night by a man who tackled him during his performance.
According to reports, the man rushed the stage and tackled Dave, after that they both fought for a few seconds before the man tried to leave the stage. Quickly, the security team got the guy and started to beat him up.
Chappelle appeared to run toward the altercation, saying the man was being “stomped.” Chappelle asked repeatedly for security to remove the man from stage.
Comedian Chris Rock, who performed earlier in the night, came on stage with Chappelle moments after the attack and joked: “Was that Will Smith?”
This could have gotten a lot worse though as the man was reported to have a gun and knife in his pants.
When will people realize that comedy is exactly that, COMEDY!!
Here is a short shot of the moment Dave was attacked:
