I’m Rick James… or am I?

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.”

  1. I’ve never listened to the guy before, but in the light that article put him.. I’m interested!

    I think I have an HBO vid of him.. I’ll have to check.

  2. i’m kind of shocked.

    because, why would you do that? WHYYYY would you go to a comedy show and just scream one line at a comedian? one catch phrase, what, is that funny? wtf is the point? it sounds really really retarded.

  3. Have you seen David Cross’ “Let America Laugh” video? It was exactly the same way for him. People talking through the show, or throwing things at the stage, totally disrespectful. You can totally feel for the performer. Do ppl have such short attention spans? >:(
