Comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage Tuesday night during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles at the Netflix Is a Joke Fest. A man rushed the stage and lunged at Chappelle in an effort to take him down. The attacker did not appear to be armed and Chappelle did not appear to be hurt. The same cannot be said about the attacker who was quickly detained and beaten by security and Chappelle. The attacker was later seen being taken away in a chair by an ambulance crew.
Chris Rock, who was attacked on stage by Will Smith at the Academy Awards this past March had performed earlier and joked with Chappelle he thought the attacker was Will Smith.
