Leave it to Dave Chappelle to not only do the most dead on impression of rapper Kanye West, but also manage to make me miss one of the best comedy shows in my lifetime, The Chappelle Show, all in one interview!
The comedian was recently on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his upcoming comedy comeback at Radio Hall; where he’ll be doing nine nights in a row, complete with musical guests such as The Roots and Erykah Badu.
During the interview, Chappelle talked about his first encounter with Kanye West, and how the comedian knew right then, that West would be a star.
Either Kanye heard about the Dave’s impression and was flattered, or the rapper just happened to be in New York and near Radio City, because days after the show aired West surprised Chappelle during his stand up with a performance of some of his biggest hits.
