All of our dreams are coming true! Yesterday, we told you about how Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle made an impromptu appearance at NYC's Comedy Cellar where they proceeded to perform together and text Jay-Z to meet them for spaghetti. The two did discuss going on tour together - "This could be the show...Fireside chats with Chris Rock," Chappelle suggested, to which Rock responded, "I'm in," - but, really, the whole thing just seemed like one of those magical, once-in-a-lifetime things that you were just lucky enough to see if you were in the right place at the right time.
Apparently, though, it may not have been! Chappelle and Rock apparently returned to the Comedy Cellar again last night to perform another epic set, and this time they even brought a few friends along. As in, Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans, Bill Bellamy, and Questlove. Oh my God.
From Questlove's Instagram:
"I was working on the other side of the world when suddenly I got a “get yo arse down here NOW!!!!!” text. Sure enough I made it just in time to see the best night ever at the comedy cellar: Hannibal [Buress] was on 1st, then Chapelle did an amazing off the top bit about what life will be like in a South African jail with prosthetic legs…and the pope quitting his career too. & then the floodgates opened: Hart riffed on Spilling drinks on Hov then everyone got in a cipher doing a mini roast/dozens/lovefest about each other. It was honest to god like watching the comic version of “scenario” or “the symphony” jokes and punchlines were flying fast. Stories of way back when was told. And I had the best seat in the house (Dave told me to play piano….but I took the bench just to get a good view) amazing night watching #themaster5"
You can check out the rest of Questlove's Instagram for some other great photos from last night, as well as Kevin Hart's. We're not the type to get our hopes up and be starry-eyed optimists, but two nights in a row? If this happens one more time - or even better, if Rock and Chappelle actually go on tour together - we're officially calling 2013 as the best year ever.
