Two nights after the Hollywood Bowl incident, Dave Chappelle performed a secret standup set at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show was a star-studded event that was attended by several A-list celebrities, including Kim Kardashian and Sean “Diddy” Combs. However, of all the famous names present, it was Chris Rock who captured most of the attention.
Per THR, Rock joined Chappelle onstage and the pair proceeded to make jokes about their respective attackers. At one point, Chappelle joked about being envious of the Rock incident as he would rather have been attacked by Will Smith than by some random audience member. “At least you got smacked by someone of repute!” Chappelle said to Rock. “I got smacked by a homeless guy with leaves in his hair.”
However, Rock revealed that he would rather have been targeted by Chappelle’s attacker as Smith doesn’t have a tough-guy reputation. “I got smacked by the softest n—- that ever rapped,” Rock joked.
