You love to hear stories like this.
As the lame general public we are, we always like when the curtain is pulled back and we get to find out what some of our favourite celebrities are like behind the scenes. Especially a comedy rockstar like Dave Chappelle.
Long story short, Dave and Joe saw each other the Comedy Store in Los Angeles and Dave decided he wanted to do a few shows with Joe. Their agents got in contact and they made it happen. They showed up to a sold-out Tacoma Dome and set an all-time attendance record (25,000 people), lit the place on fire before Dave “pissed gasoline on it.” According to Rogan.
Three hours into the show Dave and Joe do a joint Q&A with the 25,000 attendees. One of the attendees gives Dave a bag of mushrooms while a DJ and hype man were pumping up the crowd up. The show lasted five hours.
Here is where the story gets fun. Joe explains exactly what happened post-show and it when a little something like this.
– After the show, they head to the movie theatre that Dave rented out for a private screening of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
– Dave eats the mushrooms, they watch the movie and then head to bed at 4:30 AM.
– Wake up at 10:00 AM. Everyone gets an IV drip and B12 shots in their asses and are on a tour bus on the way to the private plane.
– Land in Salt Lake City. Board new tour bus. Repeat.
“He’s on this super celebrity rockstar level that’s really weird. It’s really weird.”
I was backstage at the Korn and Alice and Chains show with Dark Web Brad and felt mega cool. I could not even imagine that kind of rockstar life. Amazing. I hope Joe and Dave bring their show to Toronto. Fingers crossed.
