Comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly booked a last-minute present at Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. He did so, in keeping with a spokesman for the venue and posts on social media from those that there there, to honor the households of the ten who have been killed and three who have been wounded final month when a teen staged what police deem a racially-motivated assault at a Buffalo grocery store final month.
“He stated, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘I got here right here to Buffalo to acknowledge the victims and for these households,’” recalled Shea’s director of promoting and communications Kevin Sweeney.
Chappelle additionally instructed these attending that a number of the victims’ households have been within the viewers and that he was donating all proceeds from the present to them.
The comic booked his look on the 3,000-plus-seat area simply 4 days prior, and tickets promptly offered out.
Chappelle had his personal run-in with public violence final month when a person allegedly armed with a knife stormed the stage on the Hollywood Bowl and tried to deal with the comic.
