On April 9, April Fools Comedy Jam made its way to Brooklyn at the Barclays Center, featuring comedians Rip Micheals, Nick Cannon, HaHa Davis, Eddie Griffin, B. Simone, Tony Roberts, Bruce Bruce, Michael Blackson, Joe Torry, and Jacob Williams, plus performances by Lil’ Kim, T.I., Moneybagg Yo, and music by DJ Envy.
Clips from the event show T.I. hitting the stage not to perform, but to do comedy. Apparently, the crowd wasn’t really into it, giving him boos during his act.
During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Rip Micheals confirmed Tip was going to be in Brooklyn. “Angry T.I. is going to be there, and whatever you do, don’t make any sexual allegations about T.I. cause apparently he’ll rip your wig off or whatever,” he said, referencing the incident between comedian Lauren Knight and Tip on Monday.
He then explained that he had a joke about T.I. that he wasn’t too fond of. “Women who listen to their best friends that haven’t had a girl since T.I.’s wife was pretty. I said ‘was pretty.’ I used to love her when she was in Xscape. But he got so mad and it turned into this whole thing.”
Michaels says he apologized to him and scrapped the joke, commenting that he’s an “intimidating, intense dude.”
