Dave Chappelle, a comedian from the United States, was assaulted on stage in Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, US stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage.

Someone dashing into the star was shown in social media clips.

Further videos appeared to show the comedian returning to the stage at the Netflix Is A Joke Festival, seemingly uninjured.

Last year, when his Netflix special was accused of being transphobic, Chappelle faced backlash and protests.

On Tuesday, the 48-year-old returned to the stage and made light of the situation, telling the audience that the attacker “was a trans man.”

According to ABC writer Stephanie Wash, Chappelle was joined on stage by fellow comedian Chris Rock, who was smacked on stage by Will Smith at the Oscars in March.

Carpenter told the PA news agency that an assailant leapt at him as he was performing as the event’s headliner, sending him “flying in the air.”

“It appeared as if someone was racing across the stage from the side,” she remarked. His arms and legs were up in the air as he fell backwards on his back. He appeared to be in a state of shock. We were all stunned.

“For a little period, I pondered. Is this a joke, or what? They’d made some Will Smith jokes, that’s why. Despite the presence of Chris Rock, Dave was cracking jokes, therefore it was all fair game, right?”

“Whenever you’re in danger, Jamie Foxx will show up in a sheriff’s cap,” Chappelle said in one video, praising his famous buddies for assisting him.

Foxx said, “I assumed that was part of the entertainment.”

Chappelle cracked a joke: “This is something I’ve been doing for 35 years. Backstage, I just stomped a [person]. That’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”

This is a ‘crazy’ show.
Jimmy Carr, the British comedian who provoked anger earlier this year with a Holocaust joke in his own Netflix stand-up special, performed at Netflix’s event on Tuesday.

Carr later tweeted that the concert was “wild” and that he was “just glad everyone’s OK.”

The Hollywood Bowl has initiated an inquiry, according to a spokesman, who told PA, “The incident that occurred at the Hollywood Bowl on May 3 2022 is an active investigation and we are unable to speak further at this time.”

About a hundred individuals protested outside Netflix’s offices in October when a comedy special by Dave Chappelle was aired, which they claimed was transphobic.

They were upset because he declared “gender is a fact” and that LGBT people were “too sensitive” in The Closer.

Later, Chappelle retaliated against individuals who he said intended to “cancel” him. “I am more than prepared to offer the transgender community an audience,” he stated. “You will not, however, summon me. I’m not going to give in to anyone’s demands.”

Seth Rogen, Snoop Dogg, Bill Burr, and Pete Davidson, as well as Jerry Seinfeld and recent Oscars co-host Wanda Sykes, are all set to appear at Netflix’s first comedy festival.
