Dave Chappelle lashes out at Connecticut fans in new stand-up routine
By email@example.com (WENN Newsdesk)
Comedian Dave Chappelle has taken aim at fans in Hartford, Connecticut in his new stand-up routine after storming offstage during a comeback gig there last week (ends30Aug13) following a barrage of abuse from hecklers.
The funnyman cut short his gig in Hartford on 29 August (13) after receiving a frosty reception from audience members, who began shouting at him and quoting his older gags just minutes into the show.
Chappelle did not speak out in the immediate aftermath of the incident, but on Tuesday (03Sep13), he made his feelings about Hartford clear as he ripped into the city during his comedy performance for fans in Chicago, Illinois.
An audio recording of his rant has since surfaced on YouTube.com, and in the clip, Chappelle can be heard saying, "I swear to God, f**k that whole city. (You're) so much better than Hartford. I'll never go back. I won't even go to Hartford for f**king gas. I don't want anything bad to happen to the United States, but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut."
He added, "That crowd was evil. A room... full of suburban torturers. Young, white alcoholics just booing and talking all kinds of s**t...
"That s**t in Hartford was bad. And you know that crowd feels lucky that they got to see me freak out. It's just like being at the f**king tiger show the night Siegfried & Roy got their throats bit out by the tiger. It's f**ked up but I know deep down that's why you go to the tiger show. You don't go to see somebody be safe."
Beloved illusionist duo Siegfried & Roy ended their residency at The Mirage in Las Vegas after Roy Horn was left partially paralysed following a white tiger attack in 2003. Siegfried Fischbacher announced the pair's official retirement from entertainment in 2010.
