Last night the Comedy Cellar in New York City witnessed a historic night. Chris RockJerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Dave Chappelle, Dave Attell, Jarobi White, and Ryan Hamilton were all in attendance. Jon Laster hosted the evening. Chris Rock was testing out material for his upcoming Total Blackout tour which will be officially kicking off on February 14th in Durham, North Carolina. The tour will be Rock’s first in nine years. Rock made the annoucnment via a post to Facebook. In a picture posted to Instagram, Laster wrote:

“Tonight I was humbled and blessed to have been a part of the greatest show EVER in the history of the Comedy Cellar and maybe comedy period! We were sitting on the steps when Dave Chappelle told the manager that he didn’t wanna go on he just wanted to watch Jerry Seinfeld go on and then he was leaving. He quickly changed his mind and decided to go up. He and Chris Rock then went back and forth about who would be next. Amy Schumer overheard them and asked if she could do five minutes also to be a part of this ‘history.’ I forgot that Aziz was somewhere outside and needed to go on as well. Felt kinda surreal working with my idols. The Birds, Jordans, LeBrons all in this little hallway but I honestly didn’t feel intimidated I felt like I belonged at least like my work did. I started to excuse myself from this picture and Amy pulled me back into it and said ‘fuck that get in the picture you were a part of this!’ Thank you soooooo much Estee!! The Lineup:
