Only a handful of pictures exist from the special occasion with Dave Chappelle and Bruno Mars.
Following his last and sold out performance a part of his Washington, D.C., residency at the Warner Theatre on Saturday, Chappelle held a special after party at the Hamilton Live near the White House, where he not only offered some jokes but led the lucky crowd in attendance through a sing-a-long that featured songs from the Notorious B.I.G. and Roberta Flack, according to a report from the Washington Post.

However, the biggest surprise of the night came late, when Mars, along with his band, arrived at the venue. Mars was in town for two shows at the Capital One Arena, having completed the last one that same Saturday. Ultimately, Mars ended up onstage where he performed "That's What I Like" and a medley of R&B hits. Of course, since Chappelle hosted the event, everyone in attendance had to have their phones locked in a special pouch that could not be opened inside the venue. So there is not any video footage of the intimate performance. However, there are some photos from the event, including a special one of both Chappelle and Mars onstage, as well as Mars performing with his band.
