Dave Chappelle said very little off-stage during his run of shows at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall in June. Revolt TV spoke with the comedian at the 2014 Essence Music Festival and got him to open up about performing alongside musicians like Kanye West, Erykah Badu, The Roots, and more.
“Honestly, a lot of these guys have been very large supporters of my career in general and I’m obviously a fan of all these guys,” Chappelle said. He pinpointed West’s performance, which was a surprise. He continued, “That’s the spirit of what we do. It was very spontaneous and live.”
Chappelle says “interacting with people and seeing how warm” they are is the best part of returning to stage. Hear him speak more in the footage below.
