Sometimes, when you hire outside acts, what you get isn’t necessarily what you paid for. One university found this out the hard way when a drunk Dave Chappelle gave what could be the worst act ever.
“Dave Chappelle proved even comedic geniuses have off nights … because hundreds of angry fans are demanding refunds after a Detroit performance many are calling a drunken catastrophe. According to multiple people in the crowd during Thursday night’s 9:30 show at the Fillmore … a seemingly wasted Chappelle took the stage an hour late (mostly due to the crowd still being seated), and told very few jokes. Instead, he sat quietly smoking, rambling, and slurring his speech.”
