Dave Chappelle stormed off the stage at his show in Hartford, Connecticut on Thursday, upset about a noisy crowd he said was preventing him from performing his comedy set.


The comedian is headlining the Funny Or Die Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Tour, and was a few minutes into his routine when he reportedly became frustrated with the audience.

According to local reports, Chappelle spent the next 25 minutes sitting on a stool and refusing to do his act, asking hecklers and other crowd members to quiet down.

He then addressed everyone, saying “I like some of you, I hate some of you, I forget some of you, but I don’t forget all of you… You guys have totally ruined my chances of running for Congress… Thank you, good night.”

Chappelle put the mic down and walked off stage.
