Did Dave Chappelle Switch His ‘SNL’ Monologue At The Last Minute?



Dave Chappelle just may have pulled a fast one on ‘Saturday Night Live’ producers minutes before delivering his monologue.

According to Page Six, Chappelle did a “fake” monologue during the show’s dress rehearsal, and then switched his material for the live show.

A source told Page Six: “Dave does a fake monologue during the dress rehearsal, because he doesn’t want [‘SNL’ creator] Lorne Michaels, or anyone else, to know what his real monologue is.”

The source added that Chappelle made a joke during the dress rehearsal about a writer who refused to work with him this week on the show. You recall there were reports that a handful of ‘SNL’ staff writers decided to boycott over Chappelle hosting.

During Chappelle’s live 15-minute monologue there was no mention of a boycott, instead he took aim at Kanye West, Kyrie Irving, Donald Trump, Herchel Walker … and The Jews.

Jonathan Greenblatt, of the Anti-Defamation League blasted Chappelle for “popularizing” anti-Semitism with his jokes. Jewish activist Rudy Rochman also slammed Chappelle’s “meticulous & calculated move to desensitize the population from anti-Semitism.”

Elsewhere on Twitter folks were calling him the GOAT and singing his praises.


Of course we want to know your thoughts. Did Chappelle’s monologue solidify his GOAT status or push him closer to cancellation?
