Dave Chappelle may be a comic genius, but there's one part of comedy he just can't seem to get past- the audience.
The comedian famously walked away from his mega-hit Chappelle's Show in 2006, never fully explaining why he left, leaving many to speculate it was spurred by a series of disheartening fan interactions.
Well, Dave left no questions as to why he was upset at his Hartford, Connecticut show on Thursday night. The comic stopped his act after only a few minutes to lecture the audience on their heckling.
Then he simply sat on a stool and waited out his booked time. He was quoted as saying:

Well, this is a surprise!
Aside from that Starbucks photo taken back in February, we hadn't seen Dave Chappelle in a LONG time, but now it looks like we may see quite a bit more of him.
The former Chappelle's Show star is reportedly working on a new show for a "subscription entertainment service." No word yet on exactly which service, but Netflix or Sony's Crackle are strong possibilities.
Best of luck with the new project, Dave! It's good to have U back!
Will U check out Dave Chappelle's new subscription show when it begins?
