Dave Chappelle was joined on stage by Chris Rock at The Comedy Store in west Hollywood on Thursday, just two days after the previous was attacked on stage during his show at The Hollywood Bowl. The pair reportedly joked in regards to the assault, comparing it to the slap Chris received from fellow actor Will Smith back in March on the Oscars stage.
In accordance with attendees, Dave, 48, and Chris, 57, discussed the shock assault on stage, much to the amusement of fans.
Dave’s appearance at The Comedy Store was apparently a last-minute addition, with audience members having paid £130 each for a ticket to see the “secret show” with an unnamed famous comedian.
Ten minutes into Dave’s comedy set, Chris got here on stage to hitch him.
At that time, Dave reportedly told Chris in front of the gang: “No less than you bought smacked by someone of repute.
Dave said he was also embraced by his son after the attack.
“Lots of people love me, it seems,” he told the gang, in line with the Hollywood Reporter.
On Tuesday, clips on social media showed Dave being tackled on stage throughout the Netflix Is A Joke Festival.
While Dave was unharmed, the person responsible has since been arrested, charged with assault and brought to hospital for medical treatment.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said: “The suspect pointed a duplicate handgun that contained a knife blade at Chappelle.”
She stated: “A famous comedian was acting at the Hollywood Bowl and when he finished his act a male jumped on to the stage and tackled the celebrity.
“The suspect produced a duplicate handgun and pointed the item on the victim. He was taken into custody and was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.”
The LAPD identified the suspect as 23-year-old Isaiah Lee.
Isaiah appeared in court on Friday in relation to the incident with Dave, and he pleaded not guilty to 4 misdemeanour charges.
The fees were: battery, possessing a deadly weapon with intent to assault, unlawfully crossing from a spectator area onto a stage at a theatrical event, and interfering with or delaying such an event with illegal conduct.
Isaiah stays in custody and has been ordered to remain at the very least 100 yards (91 metres) from Chappelle as a part of a protective order.
