Chris Rock gave fans in New Orleans a surprise they won’t be forgetting anytime soon Saturday night (March 25).
During a stop at Saenger Theatre for his Total Blackout tour, Rock brought a few guest comedians: Jeff Ross, Eric Andre, and the legendary Dave Chappelle. After Chappelle performed a reported 10 minutes of material, Rock took the microphone but Dave remained on stage for Rock’s entire set.
“Tonight, you are all part of a social experiment…Stranger things have happened in New Orleans,” Chappelle told the audience upon taking the microphone. That may lead some to wonder if the two stand-up juggernauts, television show creators, and actors may be taking this concept on the road.
On Instagram, Rock likened the affair to Watch The Throne, Jay Z, and Kanye West’s 2011 joint album.
