The good news? Dave Chappelle is solidly back in the stand-up world, having just wrapped up three sold-out performances at the Hollywood Palladium. The bad news? He spent about seven minutes of his final performance on a bit about Caitlyn Jenner — while Kylie Jenner was in the audience with boyfriend Tyga, according to TMZ.
Sources from inside the venue that Chappelle started by reminiscing about Bruce Jenner's Olympic athlete days before recounting a run-in with Kanye West: "I said, 'Kanye, why the long face?' And Kanye replied, 'Man, you'll see,'" Chappelle reportedly said, which apparently brought the house down.
Everyone — including Tyga — was laughing, while Kylie kept a straight face throughout the whole bit. Though to be fair, she's paid a lot of good money to be able to keep a straight face throughout pretty much any situation. The question I have is do you think Chappelle knew that Jenner the Younger was in the crowd before launching into the bit? I totally bet he did.
