    What Really Happened at Dave Chappelle’s ‘Funny or Die’ Comeback Special?

    Last night was supposed to be Dave Chappelle’s epic return to stand up comedy, but things seemed to go horribly wrong. Standing before a packed audience at the Comcast Theater in Hartford, Connecticut, Chappelle reportedly started out with the crowd on his side, thanks to some Paula Deen jokes, but things soon turned ugly. Apparently, the crowd lost their interest not long after and began heckling and booing the comic. He then gave a few brief words to the crowd and made his exit after only 25 minutes. Could this be the end of Dave Chappelle on the stand up stage forever?
    After engaging some of the heckling politely, Chapelle had enough. “I’ve been up here a while now and I thought it was me but now I ‘m sure it’s you. There is definitely something wrong with you.” he told us. In other words, ‘shut up and let me perform.’ Not many did. Finally, he gave up and took his cigarettes and his water and sat on stage.
