Again in June, Dave Chappelle launched a shock stand-up particular on YouTube known as 8:46 that was filmed at a semi-secret stand-up present in Ohio for a small-ish crowd of about 100 folks. Moderately than a one-off for Chappelle to get some issues off of his chest, although, that particular was really a part of a semi-secret, invite-only sequence of exhibits that Chappelle has been doing with the permission of Ohio’s governor and an area zoning board that runs temperature checks, enforces social-distancing, and works with the encircling group to keep away from noise complaints. Nonetheless, one factor that no one has been protecting an eye fixed out for is disgraced comedians who refuse to fade into obscurity, as a result of one slipped by means of the cracks and obtained onstage… after presumably being invited by Chappelle to take action.
We’re speaking about Louis CK, naturally, who beforehand returned again in April when he launched a shock stand-up particular on his web site. We don’t know what’s been taking place at Chappelle’s exhibits (apparently dubbed “Chappelle’s Summer Camp” on social media), but The Hollywood Reporter says that photographer Mathieu Bitton posted a photograph on August four that includes CK, Chappelle, and fellow performers Michelle Wolf, Mo Amer, and DJ Trauma. One other picture was posted this weekend that includes CK, Sarah Silverman, Frequent, Tiffany Haddish, and some different acquainted faces.
THR says it hasn’t heard something from Chappelle’s consultant about CK’s appearances, however we do know that Chappelle supported CK and criticized his accusers within the Netflix particular Sticks & Stones (a particular that additionally noticed him criticize Michael Jackson’s accusers), so it’s not particularly shocking that Chappelle is seemingly giving him a platform right here—although it’s a bit shocking that so many different well-known folks don’t have an issue sharing a stage with a man who admitted to cornering ladies and forcing them to look at him masturbate.
