Dave Chappelle was apparently heckled so badly during a performance in Hartford, Connecticut last night that comedic legend stopped his set. The Huffington Post is reporting that just five-ten minutes into his Funny Or Die Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival show, audience members in the front row at the Comcast Theatre began making too much noise and Chappelle refused to continue his routine.

Apparently, Chappelle spent the next 25 minutes sitting on a stool smoking, reading a book, and talking randomly. The crowd’s behavior led to the Oddball Festival’s official Twitter account to issue a statement to the attendees.
Chappelle eventually tells the crowd, “I’m never coming back. This was a nightmare.” He also apologizes to those attendees who were trying to listen to the show.
Chappelle is scheduled to perform at the festival’s stop tonight (8/30) in Pittsburgh.
