Jay-Z and Kanye West might be atop the music business, but as a duo they’ve got nothing on comedic titans Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle.
According to Rock, the two stand-up icons have been in talks to hit the road together.
“I’ve been talking to Chappelle a lot,” Rock told New York magazine's Vulture at the Sundance Film Festival. “Been trying to get Chappelle to go on tour.”
Rock shared this news while doing press for his new flick, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” and of course it's been Chappelle who has been all but missing from spotlight.
Aside from an interview with a San Francisco radio station in August, rumors running wild about a “Chappelle Show” return and secret gigs throughout the country, the man himself has more or less stayed out of the spotlight.
Perhaps Rock - and a little inspiration from Jay-Z and Kanye’s platinum collaborative album, “Watch the Throne” - will pull Chappelle out of work limbo.
“You know I’m not the hard one,” Rock joked. “I’m trying to make that happen. After seeing Kanye and Jay-Z, I was like, ‘Me and Dave should do this.’”
Something we all agree would be "cray" - if it comes to pass.
Chris Rock/Dave Chapelle in concert! HOLY COW! Sign me up. I'm in.
Chris Rock is not funny to me but Chapelle is HILARIOUS! Dave would be better off pairing with Kevin Hart. As the comments indicate, Chris Rock can be polarizing.
Chapelle is the BEST! Oh my gawd I'd have to go see that one :)
Come back Chapelle!!!
Making jokes on race is not that shocking or new. Technically the man that started it all was Paul Mooney. ( Genius ) might I add that created Chris and Dave. Louie C.K. is amazing discussing racial politics because one he respects people history and he learned from the best. Frankly I would totally welcome a Rock / Chappelle tour.
Please no!. That's too many white jokes for anyone to handle.
Being racist in your act is one thing. However, continual use of the "N" word is no longer acceptable, even coming from a black man. People are being criminally charged for that word...athletes are suspended & fined for using that word, yet these hypocrites can't get 3 minutes into their act without using that word. Garbage. Hypocritical garbage.
I think you meant the F word. Used in some countries to discuss cigarettes.
Please Please Please make this happen!!! This would be a fabulous show!
ICK.......I cant stand either one of them....when they first came on deck they were Eddie Murphy wannabees....I dont even like Eddie Murphy anymore................all three are annoying
Both of them can stay home. Give me Kevin Hart. Now he's FUNNY!!!
So i guess berber sokman JUGGERNAUT and frank are gay and michelle is a lesbian.............. ok then but i think chapelle is hilarious.
Chris Rocks sucks IMO-Chappelle is so much better than him. I don't like any of the racist comments and also Chris Rock created a movie that (once again) stereotypes black women even more. I have hair down to my waist THAT GROWS FROM MY SCALP thank you very much. We didn't need people to have one more thing to try and group us all together since some people seem to get their education from TV and movies unfortunately.
J I see your point but I think the point of "Good Hair" was to dispel the BLACK community's obsession with what's on your head. The obvious obsession is laced throughout your comment. You obviously hold your hair in high regard...but why? He explained the reasoning but failed to identify the historical context that the black community still maintains when it comes to identifying good vs. bad hair.
These two comdians r so funny!!! Gottalovethem;););)
THEY ARE NOT FUNNY..IF THEY DIDN'T JOKE ABOUT THE RACE CARD THEY WOULDN'T HAVE A SINGLE THING TO SAY
You faaags is way out there. I stay away from cox and just lik dat box! Us lez-bos...we gotta "stick" together. When we done with dat dil-do, it be sooo fresh!!
U know what I want!! A big ol frank-furter. A meaty kielbasa. A greasy sausage!! Give me your meat and on it I will beat!! I will take it so deep, even a twelve incher will disappear. I be walkin bowlegged for a month!!
Berber....Bieber....call me what you want. Just don't call me straight!! I iz a flamin fairy that just luvs to polish dem knobs! I make sure every last drop of goo is wiped down....down my throat!!
Dey call me sokman cuz I be safe and glove up my package before I pack your fudge. I just wanna pump sum yung boyz!! Let's hit dat chute!!
I DO ALL CAPS CUZ I DO EVERYTHING BIG!! ALL I WANT IS A SUPER-SIZED SAUSAGE IN MY POOPER!! JUST PUMP ME FULL OF SPOO!!
Chris Rock is hilarious. Chapelle, not so much. Rock & Lisa Lampinelle(sp?) would be good. They could close out each show by having her blow him
We need something for Mexican people to go to! I know, maybe we could get two cartels to do something together.
Dave Chappelle is busy counting his money. He doesn't need to work.
I would LOVE to be the opening act for these two guys! (Hit me up on Facebook)
This is obviously a dude trying to pose as a chick. What a putz! This butt pirate can't spell, has bad grammar and likes to pump his buddy's plump rump with his tiny stump. What a chump!!
Who is that really old guy to the far right? Is he father time? I bet his is 75000 years old. He still isnt a nasty vultue like that Mitt Romney though. That Mitt Romney is a corporate raider that made his fortune breaking up companies and firing workers. He seems like an evil vulture to me.
Are u and Lojenk the same person. Stop posting lame videos on these CNN blogs. Keep it up and I will ram a monster sized jig-a-boo meat stick right up your keister! I am guessing that you would love to have your pooper penetrated!!
Im watching it right now. I think it is racist. How come there arent any of us black peoples up there talking?
HEY YALL THE TURN CNN THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE IS ON :-)
These two would be great together. I don't know if Dave would ever do another Chapelles Show though. I think he like doing stand up more.
chris tucker need a jon too "I think he is homeless"
I would love to see this show! I hope they can make it happen.
You know the world is ending when white people complain about racism
Here is a question. When will there be a season 4 of dave chappelle?
2 of the funniest mofos around it would be great !!!!
Joe. You clearly do not watch much comedy. Putting aside that your argument is stupid just from the perspective it comes from it's downright WRONG! Plenty of white comedians do start jokes like that. The only one who looks racist here is you.
So how is it ok to make fun of Fat People but not ok to make fun of race? If these two guys were racist and people took their jokes seriously then there would already have been second civil war. Heck, Rock would have single handedly started war with China. Those who think they are racist, need to go and do self assessment. Maybe you are the one who is racist. And BTW, I am not "person of color" and therefore I am not being biased.
Never thought Chapelle is funnier than Rock, different kind of humor
That would be something I will pay for with the economy in mind
Yeah ! And dont you forget it ! GAY SUPASTAR TO YOU !
Joe and Martin sure sound like gay people to me.
This coming from someone named Ted Montana? That sounds like a bad 70's gay porn star name.
. . . . . as in, you sure sound firsty for a weenie you gay lesbean. . . . .
It is correctly spelled weenie.
You're sure it was is nose and not his d!ck ?
Joe does bring up a very good point. Stupid political correctness has ruined comedy. If someone takes offence at a joke then they really need to be in therapy because they are very insecure about themselves and their race/beliefs.
Yeah. Joe is obviously a gay lesbean tuuurdmiester. A retardid one.
And Chrissy is obviously a raving idiot! Please neuter yourself immediately!
spell check much?
Dave Chapelle and Daniel Tosh are the 2 best comedians in the world. They are AWESOME !
My son laffs so hard at Dave Chapelle that milk spews out his nose.
Love how Chris Rock can make a career out of being racist......
Imagine if a White comic's opening line was always 'So this Black guy comes up to me...'
aww u mad bro? u mad? QQ
Maybe you forgot to realize... when they make jokes they don't leave anyone out, including their own color. Your comparison is White on Black... obvious difference.
and why is everyone comedian of 'color' has to bring race into it? No funny stories about marriage? kids? being fat?
Chris rock racist???? Really man????
Chris rock makes fun of black folks more than anyone????
Stop trolling you loser!!!!
There was this person named Joe standing on the corner.....
OH! i got this im white... Hey joe, chris is a comedic genius & has made fun of more blacks than white. But you wouldn't know that cause your to busy talking out your fanny. ha Watch his stand-up " Never Scared". And you don't laugh you should go see a doctor....
Joe the Plumber is back
Joe, there is a white comedian who does that and is name is Louis C.K. Check out his album/video Chewed Up. One of the funniest people alive. He's also friends with Chris Rock.
DUDE....YOU ARE THE RACIST, BECAUSE CHRIS ROCK MAKE FUN OF BLACKS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.
What are you....about 30? I guess you don't remember when whites did racist jokes....and in 'black face'!!! At least these two guys tell it like it is.
Plenty of white comedians have done that...
I watched this show last night and it was incredible. T-O-O FUNNY ! Dave and Chris are the 2 funniest guys on Broadway.
President Obama comments on these two!
