This may be Chapelle’s first headlining show at Radio City Music Hall but he has performed at the famed establishment. Back in May of 2006, he appeared as one of The Root’s surprise guests during Verizon Presents The Roots With Special Guests. The appearance occurred a month after telling Oprah on The Oprah Winfrey Show that he left The Chapelle Show due to fatigue, lack of creative control and illness as a reason for his decision. To the packed crowd at Radio City Music Hall back in May 2006, he told a different story:
I figured it out. This whole sh*t is run off a game. Nobody knows what the game is. I figured it out. I know the whole sh*t. You have to look for the clues when you dealing with Hollywood. You have to ask yourself the right question, because Hollywood thinks they’re slick. I’m serious, man. Ask yourself this: How many people live in India? 1.2 billion. So think about it: Do you think Hollywood, could’ve found an Indian to play Ghandi.
The film Chapelle may have been referencing was the 1982 film Ghandi which had British actor Ben Kingsley play the role of Mahatma Ghandi.
