Dave Chappelle hangs around Starbucks in Fairborn a lot. My friend works at the Penn Station right there and he's been in there a few times too. I've heard people say he doesn't like when fans come up to him when he's minding his business, but my friend said every time he's come into Penn Station, Chappelle always goes around to different tables, saying hi and striking up conversation. Sometimes he looks pretty fucked up though. He's also pretty buff now, apparently.
A friend of mine met him in new York while he was walking around and he asked him for a cigarette.
He goes "hey are you Dave chappelle??"
he said "no"
and my friend goes "yeah you are!"
and he goes "well no shit, what was I supposed to say?"
Dave Chappelle has a history of running very long comedy shows. My buddy and I saw one of his shows a while back. It ran very very late, until almost 4am (on a weekday), by the end, almost the entire crowd had trickled out- to get up early for work the next day and what not.
Only about a dozen of us remained at the show by this point. Dave invited us to all play basketball with him the next afternoon. He had rented out an entire gym for an hour. Of course my buddy and I took him up on the offer. We played pick up hoops with Dave Chappelle for over an hour.
After everyone finished playing, a handful of us stuck around and shot the shit with Dave. He bought us all fruit smoothies and gave us free tickets to his show the next night. SUPER nice guy, just like he is on TV.
Couldn't have been any cooler
I told him he was the reason I started stand up and thanked him for any laughs he gave me.
The whole time it seemed like he was eager to retain a conversation. He didn't try to cut it short, and he kept bringing up new topics to talk about.
