Will Smith Makes His Stand-Up Debut Alongside Dave Chapelle

Will Smith adds another check to his bucket list. 

Dave Chappelle hosted a star-studded surprise comedy show at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Sept. 19). Joining the comic for a turn on stage was the multi-talented Will Smith making his stand-up debut, reports Variety.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor explained to the crowd that his 50th birthday was coming up, doing standup was on his “bucket list,” and that he was filming the experience for a show called The Bucket List. The husband and father of two used his standup platform to joke about life at home with the family.

“I kind of lost control of my house,” joked Smith, as he noted that his wife’s Red Table Talk show on Facebook Watch has turned the garage into a control booth. "Meanwhile, son Jaden had a song that was taking off (“Icon”) but wouldn’t let his dad be featured on the track. He looked at me like I was the second-best rapper in the house."

Also losing his comedy virginity was John Mayer, who mused on pornography and his own sex life, but mostly served as a musical guide — Mayer jammed through theme songs for “Footloose” and “Caddyshack,” and tunes by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Prince.

Other highlights included Chappelle’s mockery of the book The Secret and his comparison of Kanye West to Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight champ in the world, who dated white women and even had a criminal conviction in 1913 for transporting a white woman across state lines. However, Donald Trump recently pardoned Johnson's conviction.

50 Cent, T.I. And Lil Duval Are Advocating For Cardi B To Take Offset Back

Offset and Cardi B's impending divorce has gained a lot of attention, especially with the two making a very public spectacle of their relationship by changing song lyrics boasting about their expiring nuptials. Leaving a lot of space for public opinion, 50 Cent, Lil Duval, and T.I. have weighed in on their split.

Attempting to coerce the mother-of-one into staying with the 26-year-old, Power's 50 Cent seemingly hopped in the "Bodak Yellow" emcee's comment section, begging her to take the "Bad And Bougie" rapper back.

Lil Duval also left his two cents on Twitter with a follow-up post Instagram. "Life is too short to be leaving ni**as just because they cheated," he wrote. The "Smile" artist playfully tagged the 25-year-old in his next moment of offering unsolicited advice.

T.I. wrote in agreement with comedians comments tagging the "Money" musician in his comment beneath the same Baller Alert repost. Though the brotherhood expressed during Offsets hour in need is surprisingly supportive, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, known profession by her stage name seems to have made up her mind.

Recently the five-time Grammy Award nominee had to defend her marital status after headlines swirled around claiming her divorce was a sham. “I wouldn’t put my family in a bad name for no f**king publicity, ‘cause at the end of the day, ten years from now, my daughter, she’s gonna be looking at these type of things and she’s gonna be asking me about these type of things,” Almanzar said.

Kodak Black Proposes To City Girls' Yung Miami With A Ring Pop Because Love

Miami's Art Basel was filled with memorable moments but one, in particular, was something of a masterpiece.

While in the mix of events by the likes of Young Thug and Tory Lanez, Kodak Black was seen popping the big question to City Girls' Yung Miami. Captured by TMZ, the "ZEZE" rapper got on one knee while greeting the "Period" rapper.

Getting down on bent knee, the 21-year-old presumably asked the Miami based rapper to marry him in a clip where the only things heard are the sounds of adoring bystanders screaming congratulations. Tied together by a ring pop the proposal did not include diamonds, but instead, a grape flavored Ring Pop. Confirming his big ask with a yes, Black slid the hard candy onto her right hand, making the moment more comical than anything.

Alas, the rap songstress hasn't commented on the joke. Instead, she shared with fans her latest trip to Cabo on Instagram. Meanwhile, Black shared his excitement over his upcoming album, Dying To Live expected to hit streaming sites Friday (Dec. 14).

Watch the cute clip up top.
