Written on Open Letter: Knoxville, About That Dave Chappelle Show...:

Regarding the early show. There was too much time between the feature act and Dave, thus allowing the crowd to get up, start conversations and drink more. Lulls in the show do not typically translate into lulz from the audience. I suspect much of the crowd was lost before he even took the stage. He then proceeded to go into old material that has been broadcast and rebroadcast several times on Comedy Central and other media outlets. The crowd was getting bored and it showed. Once he allowed the hotdog people to interrupt the show, every drunk "funny guy at the office" saw it as his time to share the spotlight. On top of that, you can't tell me Dave Chappelle does not have access to a lighter. Asking audience members to help him light his cigarettes further invited "audience participation". That being said, I thought the crowd work was pretty funny and entertaining. Dave has been doing comedy long enough to know how to control an audience, and he decided to let this one get rowdy. I'm more disappointed by the fact that it seems he has not written any new jokes in the past five years.

Just FYI - I believe that is a post from someone looking to acquire drugs. Molecular MDMA, to be exact. AKA Molly.
