Dave Chappelle performed at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Tuesday (May 3), as part of the “Netflix Is A Joke” festival, and during his set, a member of the audience attacked the comedian.
Footage from the show features the man tackling Chappelle toward the end of his set, knocking him to the ground. Law enforcement sources spoke to TMZ, and they revealed that the man was holding a replica of a semi-automatic gun, which had a knife attached to it.
The attacker was later arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, and Dave continued on with his set, telling the crowd, “I don’t know if that was part of the show. I grabbed the back of that n***** head, his hair was spongy, absorbent.” Check out the footage above.
