On Saturday night, Dave Chappelle began an unprecedented month-long residency at New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall. As if a month of Chappelle at the legendary venue isn’t enough of a big deal, Chappelle will also be joined for each performance by a rotating cast of iconic musicians and comedians that includes Erykah Badu, Ali Wong, Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly known as Mos Def), Lauryn Hill, Trevor Noah, Leslie Jones and a host of to-be-announced surprise guests. For those more interested in comedy over music, however, last night’s roster might have been the best lineup of the month.
Chappelle was scheduled to perform with fellow legends of the stage Chris Rock and Jeff Ross on Saturday night, but they also brought in two other surprise comics to make sure everyone truly got their money’s worth. Comedy Central’s Amy Schumer took to the stage before Rock did his set, and later on, none other than Kevin Hart came out to do a set before Chappelle. By all accounts, it was an epic night of comedy that we can all shamelessly admit we’re jealous of for not seeing for ourselves.
