Dave Chappelle celebrated his 30th anniversary as a comedian with a 16-show residency at Radio City, which wrapped up last night (8/24). The final night was a double celebration, as it was also Dave's birthday party. As announced, the guests were Ali Wong, John Mayer, and a DJ set from Lil Jon. Interestingly enough, no big surprise guests for the final night, but Chance the Rapper (who played the residency on 8/17) came on stage to wish Dave a happy birthday. Mo Amer and Donnell Rawlings (aka Ashy Larry from Chappelle's Show), who were both at several nights of the residency, were at this one too. Jay-Z and Beyonce were spotted in the crowd. And there was a motorcycle on stage. Here's what one attendee wrote:
Couldn't have dreamed of a more amazing night. Phones were locked up which kinda made it more special knowing that only you and a very lucky couple thousand of other people all share an experience that can't be recalled with pictures, only laughter. As guest celebrities kept rolling out, we never missed a moment of it because of messing with our phones... Dave doing stand up, fucking JOHN MAYER playing guitar behind him, on his birthday, with Lil Jon YEEEEAH. Then Chance the Rapper comes out to wish him happy birthday with Spike Lee.
