article imageComic Dave Chappelle chastises an unruly crowd and walks off

Comic Dave Chappelle isn't a TV guy much anymore, but he's still a working comic - on most nights. However, Thursday in Hartford, Conn. the crowd wouldn't stop being unruly so Chappelle stopped working and left the stage.
"All right, you guys,” the former star of 'The Chappelle Show' said after trying to quiet the house down awhile. “I like some of you, I hate some of you. I forgive some of you, but I don’t forgive all of you."
That didn't quiet the crowd so Chappelle made up his mind to do really do something about it. "You guys have totally ruined my chances of running for Congress or something," he told the noisy crowd. There was a long pause while he seemed to be considering his options. "Thank you. Good night.”
He put the mike down and walked off the stage, for good.
The 40-year-old Chappelle was in Hartford as part of a comedy tour called 'Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival.' The festival, produced by Live Nation is on a 13 city tour of the U.S.. Other comics on the bill include Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal and 'Flight of the Concords'.
It wasn't clear why the crowd picked on Chappelle, who left his TV show after two seasons and parts of a third because he said he wasn't enjoying it. The father of 3 has converted to Islam and spent time in South Africa.
'Funny or Die's Oddball Comedy Curiosity Festival' continues through until Sept. 22. Cities the festival visits include Detroit (Sept. 1), Camden, N.J. (the 6th), Denver (13th), Las Vegas (Sept. 21) and Phoenix (the 22nd).
