Dave Chappelle surprises ‘Fallon’ to hype his Radio City run (which has tix on sale)
Last night, Dave Chappelle surprised The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon was looking for crowd participation, and he approached a sunglasses-wearing crowd member who introduced themselves as "Dave." When Fallon asked what he does for a living, Dave said "a comedian." When Fallon asked if he has any fun plans this summer, Dave said, "Yeah I'm gonna play Radio City for 14 nights." He lists who will be joining him at the shows, and ends by pointing to Fallon's house band and saying "and of course, the legendary Roots." Fallon also asked, "If it goes well are you gonna add any extra shows?" and Dave replied, "Yeah... if it goes well." Watch below.
