The dual headlined show is not the first time the acclaimed comedians have met on stage this year. Both Chappelle and Rock were at the receiving end of on-stage attacks this year. Rock was infamously slapped by Will Smith during the live-broadcasted 2022 Oscar Awards in March. In May, Chappelle was charged while performing at the Netflix Is A Joke festival in Los Angeles by 23-year-old Isaiah Lee, who was armed with a weapon.
After Chappelle’s incident, he and Rock teamed up at a secret comedy show in Los Angeles where each made commentary on their respective experiences. The show initially began with Dave Chappelle who was later joined by Chris Rock following Lee’s attack.
“At least you got smacked by someone of repute!” Chappelle joked to Rock. “I got smacked by a homeless guy with leaves in his hair.”
Rock responded, “I got smacked by the softest ni**a that ever rapped.”
