Dave Chappelle was tackled on stage by an audience member Tuesday night during his live show at the Hollywood Bowl.
The comic, 48, was performing as part of the “Netflix
Is A Joke” festival, when the mayhem unfolded around 10:45 pm, toward the end of the stand-up show, according to witnesses.
Shocking video footage shows Chappelle standing on stage as an audience member charges and slams him to the ground. Seconds later, the attacker was tackled to the ground by security. LAPD responded to the chaos, according to ABC7.
Moments after the unprovoked tackle, comedy guest Chris Rock came on stage and gave Chappelle a hug, before saying, “Will, was that you?”
Rock referred to the infamous Will Smith slap after making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss.
