Reddit user freebass shared an amazing story today about randomly bumping into Dave Chappelle on the street in Minneapolis last night. The reclusive comedian has kept a low profile since famously quitting Chappelle's Show eight years ago, but he still pops up every now and then in small comedy clubs. Last night, he was greeted by three people he didn't know and ended up just hanging out with them for six hours. What a dude.
From the post:
Ran into Dave Chappelle outside my hotel around midnight today (8/2). Hung out at the empty hotel bar for a couple of hours and chatted about this and that. Dave ended up inviting us to a hookah bar / Middle Eastern restaurant, but by the time we arrived, it was closing (2:00AM). The owners were gracious enough to stay open for us and for the next 4 hours it was hookah, drinks, and swapping stories. Haven't slept yet, but what a night!
freebass shared a few pictures, too, to prove the night happened.
Cool shit, Dave.
A word of advice, though, to anyone trying to also chill with one of the greatest comedians alive: He apparently hates it if you quote Chappelle's Show skits or are generally a douche in any way. But judging from this Reddit post, if you're cool to Chappelle, he's cool with you.
