In addition to NYC music venues reopening this month, comedy clubs also reopened their doors. The Stand had a little help last week, with two back-to-back surprise shows with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock on April 12.
Also on hand to introduce the night was NYC Democratic mayoral frontrunner Andrew Yang, whom Dave supported during his 2020 presidential bid. “I cannot stress this next point enough, the views expressed here are only my own and not Andrew’s,” Chappelle said to the crowd after being introduced by Yang. “Don’t let any of this get on him. Stop Asian hate.”
