Dave Chappelle has received numerous accolades, including five Emmy Awards and three Grammy Awards as well as the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. He is known for his satirical comedy sketch series Chappelle’s Show. The comedian’s recent endeavor, The Closer, also brought him a lot of unintended attention. Those cries to cancel him didn’t pay off.
Dave Chappelle did what he does best on Tuesday night. He packed the house with fans, including a bunch of celebs, who showed up on a cold L.A. night to watch his stand-up. Among those who showed up Jeff Ross, Mario, Talib Kweli, Andrew Garfield, Casey Affleck, and Odell Beckham Jr. and girlfriend Lauren Wood.
Chappelle was in great spirits as he arrived at the Peppermint Club in WeHo. With drink and cigarette in hand. Dave’s been doing a bunch of shows since his final Netflix installment dropped.
Earlier this year Chappelle also got Grammy nomination. He received the nom for Best Spoken Word Album. Regardless of how hard fans tried to cancel he still received critical acclaim.
He’s been showing his documentary, “Dave Chappelle: Live in Real Life,” at some of the venues. From what we can tell, however, his Peppermint Club gig was strictly stand-up. The documentary chronicles the comedy shows Dave put on in Yellow Springs, Ohio during COVID. It shows how Dave was supporting his hometown during the pandemic.
