Dave Chappelle knows when you’re sleeping. Also, when you’re stupid.
He walked off the stage at a Sacramento show last Tuesday when audience members kept screaming “I’m Rick James, Bitch!” at him. He came back after a few minutes to freak out on the crowd, and educate them on the difference between Television and Stand-Up. He told them he knew why they liked his show:
“Because it’s good. You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you’re not smart enough to get what I’m doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong.
You people are stupid.
You guys are the worst listeners in the country. It’s like ‘The Silence of the Lambs.’ Without the silence.”
