Dave Chappelle Wanted To Pull “Reverse Kramer”

By Michael September 05, 2013 @ 1:52 PM

Comic genius and crazy motherfucker Dave Chappelle had some choice words for the town of Hartford, CT…namely that he hopes it is destroyed by nuclear weapons. It all started when Chappelle played a show there last week as a part of his big comeback tour. A bunch of drunk frat types started heckling him. Chappelle said he wouldn’t go on with the show until they stopped. When they didn’t, he sat out his time quietly and then walked off the stage then reflected a week later…

“I wanted to pull a reverse Kramer and call them all crackers or something crazy like that…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.”

This seems about right to me. Heckling a live stage performer should be punished by death. I don’t care if they’re shitty, or if they’re Chappelle. It’s like blasting off an air-horn behind a hi-rise construction worker to see if you can get him to lose his balance. It’s not cool in any form or fashion. You want attention, get your ass up on the stage and take a shot. Yeah, a nuclear blast seems harsh, but we are talking about Hartford, and based on the prevailing easterly winds, maybe we lose a little Rhode Island too. We’ll be fine.

    Wouldn’t the reverse of what Kramer did mean complementing the audience?

    A good comedian would be able to give it right back at the hecklers and embarrass them in front of the crowd until they shut up.
