Things got wild at the Dave Chappelle comedy show Tuesday night.
According to folks on Twitter, who attended his show at the Hollywood Bowl, Chappelle was assaulted on stage by a crazed fan.
Apparently he was finishing up his performance when a man ran on-stage and lunged at him knocking him to the floor. Security and his entourage then cornered the man as Dave joked about him getting “stomped” backstage.
