Chris Rock & Dave Chappelle Performed Together Last Night. Tour? Also Rock Is Shooting A New Movie

Rock Chappelle

This report from our friends at Vulture:

As reported by the Comic's Comic, after midnight, unannounced, Dave Chappelle dropped by the Comedy Cellar (which you might know as the club from Louie) and did 45 minutes by himself. Right before he was going to end his set, Chris Rock joined him onstage for an hour. The two riffed about topics like Seth MacFarlane and Jay-Z's relationship with President Obama. Rock texted Jay-Z at 1:30 a.m., asking if he wanted to get spaghetti. When Jay didn't respond, they left voice mails for Arsenio Hall and Lenny Kravitz.

Hah! Prep for a comedy tour together perhaps. You'll recall last October when Chris Rock teased a potential upcoming tour with Dave Chappelle on tour, and that they'd been working on some material together. Maybe last night's impromptu set was a tryout of that material.

Vulture goes on to add that, after they ended their set last night, the pair discussed a potential tour:

"Come out to Oakland," Chappelle told Rock.

"You should come down to West Palm," Rock replied.

Chappelle: "After next Tuesday, I'm free for like 11 years."

Rock said he has a new movie of his own he's going to film later this spring, and would be cutting it over the summer. "I've got time between now and the movie,"

Rock told Chappelle onstage. "By Halloween, I could do dates."

So just a little back-and-forth there, teasing some more about a tour. At this point, I'd say that it's probably going to happen, and will be formally announced sooner than later, so stay tuned.

As for the film that Chris said he's going to be shooting this spring, I really have no idea what that could be. It's been a while since we announced any new Chris Rock projects - aside from producing and/or exec producing for others - the late night series with W. Kamau Bell on FX, and a sketch comedy series featuring young comedian and YouTube star, Deshawn Raw for Comedy Central.

The only film project I'm aware that was previously announced is the feature documentary called Credit Is The Devil, which has been on his slate for a couple of years now or more. He's been talking about since Good Hair was out.

Whatever it is, we'll find out about it soon enough.
