Chris Rock’s return to stand-up Saturday night in New Orleans after a nine-year hiatus was crashed by none other than fellow comedian Dave Chappelle.
According to the Times-Picayune, a cigarette-smoking Chappelle took the stage at the Saenger Theatre and treated the audience to an unscheduled 30 minutes of material. “Tonight, you are all part of a social experiment. Stranger things have happened in New Orleans,” he said.
Chappelle reportedly riffed on Rock’s rough divorce, Bill Cosby, and the controversy over the LGBTQ jokes he had made during his newly-released Netflix special.
Rock, the night’s headliner, later joined his longtime friend onstage and the pair spent the next hour cracking jokes back-and-forth.
During their banter, the New Orleans Advocate reports, Rock asked, “Did Trump do anything today?”
“No, he’s still languishing in that failure of a health care bill,” Chappelle reportedly responded, adding “I think Donald Trump is gonna save America by accident.”
