MediaTakeOut.com learned that comedian Dave Chappelle didn't get many laughs during his appearance at Friday's Zo’s Summer Groove charity event in Miami.
According to E! News, only told one joke during his 45 minutes on the stage. Instead he talked with audience members who were heckling him, answered four text messages, then left, telling the audience: "Alright ladies and gentleman it's been a growing experience, I'm really glad I came."
CNN reporter Roland S. Martin was at the event and tweeted details about Dave's strange routine.
"This Dave Chappelle set is bizarre. He's spent more time going back & forth with one audience member, & pretty much stopped telling jokes," Martin wrote on the social networking site. "One woman just yelled, 'Can you tell a joke so we can enjoy ourselves!' He got texted four times during his show and actually checked them. I'm just not understanding what threw him off. He's complained about folks videotaping his set, yelling out loud. I don't get it. Chappelle says this is a 'test of wills.' He keeps saying 'tick tock' & he has 'nothing but time.' He's just staring at the crowd & sighing. Then Dave started talking to me, asking if I was putting this on CNN. Yes, from the stage! He's been on stage 46 minutes & told one joke."
Martin later wrote that Dave's people told him the comedian hates to be heckled and when some audience members did that it threw him off completely.
*** get it togetha homie.....hot women follow me on twitter....lol
ok MTO, a crackhead that puts on 30 pounds of muscle...smh and why yall still got
that *** [EXPLETIVE] of "Bow Wow" still on the site from a year ago?
C'mon MTO. Everybody knows Dave's a pothead.
CHECK OUT MY SITE!!!!
dont matter to me, he's still hilarious lol
"I'm rich ***"
Ummmm... Just because he extremely stubborn and throws *** fits means he's on
drugs on mto?!?! The man may be crazy, but he's not a druggie... sheesh
I hear a lot of laughing and cheering..
Yeah that sound crackish to me
I love Dave!!!!!
I pleads the fi-ziff on the drugs but this negro still got paid I bet soOo ...
he not funny in stand up comedy anyway...
Hang in there, Dave. He's NOT crackish and there is nothing wrong with him. Read the "report" again. Dave had an issue with being taped for CNN(NWO News) and ppl doing things behind his back without permission--how is that crazy? "They" always make their targets appear crazy or hopelessly drug addicted so their demise does not come as suspicious or surprising. Dave is being harrassed.
Dave is hilarious. I don't know what's the deal with this performance, but I doubt that he's on crack. He was looking buff as hell in that recent picture MTO showed not like a skinny addict.
Dave we fans miss u come back homie all we
got is Mike epps these other dudes lame
@ Ladttopshotta73, I agree with your comment 100%.
Dudes' behavior was nowhere near "crackish" There are things going on in that industry that the average joe would not understand. He had his reasons for doing what he did.
Y stand on stage for 45 min, if u dnt like what happened leave. Yes u will b charged money for skippin the show but if u feel a setup, then leave. Its not worth ur reputation. People r gonna b after him since he turned down comedy central. Its just like the Lebron situation. Nicca we will set u free but u'll have a hard way to go.
I like Dave, but yeah that was pretty crackish on him.
HE'S NOT ON CRACK, THOSE ARE NOT CRACK SYMPTOMS, COME ON MTO, IF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DRUGS, STOP ASSUMING PEOPLE ARE ON THEM! NOW, HE MIGHT BE ON A SHERM STICK, BECAUSE HE DID GET STUCK FOR A MINUTE, & HE'S REALLY NOT FOCUSING, BUT NOT CRACK!
@ lovely 81 and ladytopshotta, if u recall in the past dave hinted at the true dark/sinister nature of the industry.
I think he did this so they wouldn't want to videotape him. When you are on the radar as a target they will use anything against you. I see why when I go to certain tapings, they say no cell phones, mo cameras, People always tryna catch you in a moment that they can benefit from. More Power to you Dave.
Man I miss that show:( Mto stop being messy
he crazy anyway
White people set this up:( sad ***
Why follow u elsewhere if u ain't sayin *** here? Anyway, Dave ain't really funny anymore. My 2cents. . .
Ain't no way a crackhead gonna receive such thunderous applause. He probably felt he was too big for the gigg, looked like it was one of those line-up comedy *** and Dave been done pass that stage.
He took time off...he just need to get use of it again
Dave is lost ever since getting heavily involved with trying to appease white racists and marrying that Asian woman. He went to Africa to find himself but until he ready to come back all the way black he's going to stay loss.
Dave lost me as a fan a looong time ago. Pft, anyway, if he is on drugs he's on his way back to "common" celebrity. Lets hope not. God bless you Dave
HE HAD A BAD *** HUH STILL GOT PAID THO, FUNNY GUY
@ladytopshotta33 I was thinking the same thing...
If he doesn't like to be heckled then why is he a comedian??? Thats part of the business!
Andy Kaufmann style....
Hang in there, Dave. He's NOT crackish and there is nothing wrong with him. Read the "report" again. Dave had an issue with being taped for CNN(NWO News) and people doing things behind his back without permission--how is that crazy? "They" always make their targets appear crazy or hopelessly drug addicted so their demise does not come as suspicious or surprising. Dave is being harassed by Illuminati and MTO seems to be supporting them.
I'm not surprised.
Maybe Roids getting to him. LOL. A comedian who can't handle heckling? That's weird. That's like a hockey player not being able to play b/c he got body checked. He seemed high, my conclusion.
Lol *** dave.
I DON'T THINK HE WAS THERE TO TELL JOKES...LOOKS LIKE AN APPEARANCE..I COULD BE WRONG.
Welldamn, I'm speechless...lol. Follow me on twitter@Troy_DaTruth
FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @EMPRESS_MJ :)
So glad to see that quite a few of us don't take things at face value. Dave could have accepted that 50 million and done some real SIGNIFICANT damage. I think the black klansmen skit was ahead of it's time. It indirectly spoke about ppl like Fred Muhungawanga and quite a few others. *Shrugs*
But skits like "The ***" did make me cringe and Dave was rather clownish. I'm just glad to see him putting up some type of resistance and not continuing on with their plans. I'm sure those same Zionist Jews and Media Moguls had MUCH worse in mind and Im glad he refused.
Follow me on twitter
Oh well. I'm sure next time he'll be on point. He needs to practice a little more.
SilverAngel is a slore
SilverAngel is a ***
clarkthink is a *** with *** breath
People texting while you look at them is rude on their part and a waste of "your" time.
He's fragile and if he isn't treated with caution and care he may go back into hiding. We need to nurture him back into civilization.
he's still the best...

dave still the king
His behaviour in no way came off crackish MTO. You got 1 part of the story right he *** down after he started being heckled by some members of the audience up front. He basically decided he wasnt gonna do squat. I only feel bad for Zo this is the first time in ZSG's history a comediane didnt deliver as expected.
He just got his Andy Kaufman swag on. If you dont know who that is, go rent Man on the Moon staring Jim Carrey
Honestly I been thought he was doing crack
*** YO COUCH *** LOL
Everyone is talking about how talented Dave is. Well what about being professional? This is somethin that he clearly isn't displaying here and certainly nothing of that talent everyone speaks of. He was as talented as everyone claims, he would not allow a few hecklers to ruin the show for the entire audience. Dust that off Dave. You aren't in a real life version of "The Nutty Professor."
@Doolamite2000, well said!
Right clearly ppl videotaping without his permission. So he has a right to choose not to perform because of it. Doesn't mean anything is wrong with him, more so something wrong with the audience.
Dave appears to have gained some healthy weight ,he looks fine and far from being
on drugs.He actually walked away from earning a large paycheck to save his sanity
.This man has a family to take care of and he did the right thing by telling them
to kiss his a.......The industry is no place to be if only people knew they would
back off quick.We know dave chapelle is NOT crazy as he stated it's the industry
who is sick and crazy.
Nah he just hit a wall...He doesnt look inspired anymore!
negro you've been in the game too long to have a heckler throw you off your game. something else is and was going on with his azz on that ***. hope it's not the roids kicking in
This is step 1 of illuminati trying to brainwash us with drug rumors...the media is trying to discredit Dave since he decided not to sell his soul for fame wake up people dont believe the media hype MTO & TMZ are affiliated
@LADYTOSHOTTA73 AND DACEPH I AM GLAD YOU GUYS SEE THROUGH THE BS DAVE SPOKE OUT AND DID NOT SELL OUT SO NOW THEY HAVE TO TRY AND SABOTAGE HIS CHARACTER ISN'T THAT ALWAYS HOW THE STORY GOES. HE IS NOT A CRACK ADDICT JUST SOMEONE WHO SAW PASS THE SMOKE AND MIRRORS WAKE UP MY BLACK PEOPLE MTO IS APART OF THE SABATOGE AS WELL DON'T BE NO FOOL IT MAY SAY BLACK SITE ON THE SURFACE BUT YOU NEED TO DIG DEEPER TO SEE WHO IS TRULY IN CONTROL YOU HAVE A BRAIN PLEASE USE IT. ONE LOVE PEACE
OMG.... such as waste. I hope he doesn't end up like Amy Winehouse.
Its okay Dave. The Bible says: what good does it profit a man if he has gain this world and loses his soul. You did the right thing. Though they are trying to defame your character stand tall. God is not sleeping, he sees all.
you know illuminati is behind his *** lol he just a lil scared dats all
ANOTHER KAT WILLIAMS MOVE?????
REAL REAL TALK
P.S MAYBE THEIR SHARING PIPES TOGETHER
Maybe he was waiting for the money man to come. You know the guy with his money for doing the show. Perhaps the text was about his money not showing up. I would leave too. People don't understand the entertainment business, it is the sleaziest business going. They don't care how they treat people. Sad state of affairs!!!!
MTO y'all are So *** rachett! Just because Dave is upset doesnt
mean he's acting
"crackish"! There were cameras filming him & obviously that didn't sit too well with him. This is the same guy that walked away from 30 (or was it 50?) mill for the sake of his sanity.. Basically this was a good "kiss my ***" directed at Hollyweird. Do your homework, before you start saying someone is acting crackish..& Dave has obviously picked up weight so I doubt he's On any drugs.
Wow... no crackish acting going on here. He simply does not wanna be videotaped without his consent. Duh.
thanks red ***!!!
lmao..he's not funny anyway. His 5 minutes were up when he started. lol
