You may remember that the Hartford stop of last year’s Funny or Die Oddball Comedy tour was where Dave Chappelle walked off stage due to unruly hecklers. The 2014 Oddball Comedy Tour returned to Hartford last night (8/23), this time with Louis CK, Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Hannibal Buress, Dave Attell and Kevin Iso. Throughout the night, host Brody Stevens referenced last year’s incident, saying it lit a fire under the tour. Earlier in the the day on the side stage, he said “NYC’s only an hour away, you never know who could show up.” And he was right. After Louie’s headlining set, he said, “Ladies and gentlemen, Dave Chappelle.” And Dave himself returned to the same stage that last year’s “meltdown” occurred. This time it was all positivity though. He got a standing ovation from most of the crowd for his entire time on stage, which was half an apology and half a mini-set.
