See Behind-The-Scenes Photos From Dave Chappelle At Radio City
Join Okayplayer as we offer a behind-the-scenes look at all that has gone on during Dave Chappelle’s residency at Radio City.
Dave Chappelle is a once-in-a-lifetime artist. He is a genius and a subversive creative who points the spotlight at all of humanity’s ugly warts and blemishes. No reviewer of his residency at Radio City can do him justice because his brand of storytelling is unlike anyone out there. For those who have already seen any one of the first four out of 16 shows Chappelle has done at New York’s famed Radio City Hall — you can attest as to how audacious of a feat his show has been.
With tension-filled jokes recounting the tragic murder of Emmett Till to lambasting the current president of the free world, Donald Drumpf, with second thoughts about his administration — Dave Chappelle’s set exudes the weariness we as a country feel about the daily happenings in the news. Thanks to our illustrious captain, Ginny Suss, we were granted access to witness the inner workings behind Dave’s three-and-a-half-week run, which ends on Aug. 24 (Chappelle’s birthday).
Gaining access past the velvet rope enabled us to see stars, friends and close loved ones such as Ice Cube, W.C., Usher and more show up for Chappelle’s massively impressive comedic spectacle. By adding a bit of flair and energy to the sleepy month of August, Radio City becomes the most exhilarating place to be if you’re a part of the OKP Family.
