Dave Chappelle is in new York City for a takeover on many levels. Aside from posting up in Radio City Music Hall for the next few weeks, he’s doing a solid press run. He stopped by Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning show this morning and engaged in a semi-takeover. He switched sides with Ebro and the crew and sit in the Hot Seat for his interview.
Chappelle talked everything from Game of Thrones to the death of Charlie Murphy to what was happening at the moment when he found out when Donald Trump won his Presidency. Ironically, he was filming his epic SNL episode while the election was playing out. That could be the reason why the episode was so good, the reactions were real. It was so good, it was nominated for an Emmy.
Aside from his already scheduled shows at Radio City, Dave announced some additional show dates. Most of the shows have already sold out so if you missed out before, you can jump on it now. Solange will be joining him and so will select members of Saturday Night Live (Leslie Jones, Michael Che, and Colin Jost). These tickets go on sale TODAY at 5 p.m. via Ticketmaster.
