On January 21st, I was fortunate to attend Dave Chappelle’s sold out show at Club Bahia.
It was a no phone event, meaning once you got to the entrance they made you put your phone into a greenish pocket where it was sealed and after the show you could unsealed it.
What most of us were not expecting was an all start lineup.
After the couple of comedians warmed the place up, Hannibal Burress came out and set the stage for what was to come up.
He brought out Chappelle and after 10 minutes, he brought special guest, Chris Rock, to which the crowd went crazy!
Chris Rock addressed the Oscars boycott and stated he was going to go ahead and host it. The Oscars have always been white so that doesn’t surprised him, “If I boycott the Oscars, they’ll give the job to Jamie Fox!” He talked about other things he’s more worried than the Oscars like his current Divorce.
Rock made jokes on Will Smith’s Concussion, “Who wants to go to the movies and see Concussion? Just saying the word gives me a headache!”
Talked about Straight Outta Compton, do you think Cube was writing lyrics thinking he is going to win an award…..”NWA-Ni**as Without Awards.”
He also shared the story when he went to an Obama fundraiser filled with bunch of white wealthy millionaires and when he went up to Obama he said, “You see all these White people, they don’t hire black people and they are the nicest ones.”
Chris Rock was amazing!!
Then he brought back Chappelle and he was on fire! He stated that when he was boycotting Hollywood, “where were they?” Chappelle mentioned that if Will Smith ends up boycotting, he would gladly take his seat. He had the whole crowd saying his favorite mantra, “In through the nose, out through the mouth, that’s the way I like to f*ck.”
The thing with Rock and Chappelle, they are not only two of the greatest comedians, but they are legends because they are two of the most progressive individuals out there. They know their shit! They spit knowledge to you and if you look within the punchlines, you will pay attention to the message they are trying to convey.
It was my 1st time seeing Chris Rock and my 5th time seeing Dave Chappelle. I won’t be surprised if Rock brings out Chappelle during the Oscars for one of his jokes.
