Love or hate either comedian, talks of a tour have got people wondering if this will really go down.
Rock and Chappelle have been trying to collab for a while now, and according to Slate Magazine, things are still in the ‘works’:
Rumors of a Watch the Throne-style Dave Chappelle/Chris Rock comedy tour have circulated for almost a year now. Last October, the online magazine Humor Mill reported that the two had been spotted at a New York comedy club, and had discussed doing a comedy show together. Then in January, Vulture asked Rock about the rumors when he was at the Sundance Film Festival. “You know I’m not the hard one,” he told them. “But I’m trying to make that happen. After seeing Kanye and Jay-Z, I was like, ‘Me and Dave should do this.’”
Several months passed, but lately Rock has been doing frequent surprise spots at the Comedy Cellar (a venue you may recognize from the opening credits—and many stand-up sets—on Louie), and not long ago the two showed up there together. Rock tweeted a photo of himself and Chappelle, with the enticing caption: “Me and Dave at the comedy cellar watch the throne.”
Finally, on the Today Show earlier this week, Rock was asked about whether he was going to do another comedy tour any time soon. “Maybe,” he said. “Me and Chappelle have been working out, trying to get some stuff together. But we will see.”
Here’s the real question. If the tour gets the green light, would you want to go check it out?
