He's obviously saying it to get laughs, and because at a Dave Chappelle show they repeatedly, repeatedly, repeatedly say "No heckling or the show is cancelled."
He doesn't have to put up with that crap. He can stand on stage and talk about how rude a crowd is and still get paid.
The Hartford crowd didn't deserve to get to see Chappelle. Oh well.
I was at this Chicago show...it was all for jokes...said the heckling started when he made a joke about a couple in the front row. Someone yelled something from the crowd in Chicago but he said he couldnt hear them. He even joked about himself quitting the Chappelle Show also. He was hilarious actually Sat night
