Dave Chappelle continued his 16-show Radio City residency last night (8/17) with guest Chance the Rapper and surprise guests Jon Stewart, Hannibal Buress, John Mayer and Mo Amer. NY Times writer and comic Sopan Deb was there and posted a transcription of some of Jon Stewart’s set. Here’s some of what he said about Trump:

Here’s some clues that he’s not a great guy. He lives in a building with his name on it in giant letters and he has a plane on it, with his name in giant letters. Good people don’t ride like that. You’re never like, “Hey, there’s the Mother Teresa Plane.” Like, that’s [INAUDIBLE] shit right there. And i’ll admit, like, I have a particular beef with him. So, all this shit is new to people. They’re like Donald Trump is a racist? Four years ago, I come into the office one morning and I walk in and somebody says to me, “Dude, did you see what Trump tweeted about you?” And I was trying to be cool so i was like, “Fuck Yeah!” So he tweeted, “If John Leibowitz is so above it all, why did he change his name?” Basically, saying to people, “Just so you know, he’s a Jew.”

…He comes at me with “His name is Liebovitz.” So I have some issues with my father. Things worked out. I changed my name. We don’t have to go there? The point is – so I don’t know what to do. So I get on the Comedy Central Twitter and I tweet back,” Did you know Donald Trump’s real name is Fuckface Von Clownstick?”

You can read more of Sopan Deb’s transcriptions, and a few Instagram-user reviews from attendees, below.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart’s first standup specials in 20 years are coming out on HBO at some point in the near future. Here’s also once again hosting this year’s “Night of Too Many Stars” benefit show at November 18 at MSG.

Chance the Rapper also has two Forest Hills Stadium shows coming up in September.

Chappelle’s surprise guest at the previous show was Kendrick Lamar. His run continues tonight (8/18) with current Daily Show host Trevor Noah (who also headlines his own Radio City show in January). After that, future guests include Childish Gambino (8/19), Lauryn Hill (8/20), Solange (8/22), Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) & Talib Kweli (8/23), and more.

As you may know, Chappelle has also been making surprise appearances at the Comedy Cellar during the Radio City run.
