Being as though this is Rock’s first stand up show in nine years, the 52-year-old comedian decided to kick off his performance at the Saenger Theatre by warming up the crowd with a brief Chappelle appearance. “Tonight, you are all part of a social experiment. Stranger things have happened in New Orleans,” Chappelle said upon his arrival.

This “social experiment” turned out to be a comedy power house with appearances from Jeffrey Ross and Eric Andre who were also on hand for the laugh out loud experience.
This show was the first of a three night run for Chappelle in ‘Nawlins. We’ve seen Rock and Chappelle return to the comedy scene, but could we possibly see them put on a show together in the future? Fans are all about it.
Went to the Chris Rock show tonight. Instead we got Jeff Ross, Eric Andre, Dave Chappelle AND Chris Rock. Fuckin insane.
