Well done. John Mayer was able to give fans in Ohio a Chappelle Show reunion last night when Dave Chappelle surprised thousands on stage at his concert. The moment occurred hours after news broke on the passing of Charlie Murphy. If you can recall; Mayer featured on the series in a few special episodes. A video has now surfaced shot by fan Brian Midkiff on the moment Dave took to the stage to remember Murphy with Mayer’s help.
Chappelle, who lives in Yellow Springs and is known to pop up at regional comedy clubs and even city council meetings, joined Mayer onstage, calling him a “sight for sore eyes” after getting the sad news about Murphy. “Everybody in comedy is heartbroken” the comedian noted, honoring the man who gave us “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories,” which rank among the most iconic sketches from Chapelle’s Show. Mayer was part of the Chappelle’s Show legacy himself, having taken part in the “White People Dancing” sketch, which Chappelle called “one of the greatest moments of the show.” Before the singer began to play Chappelle’s song request, You’re Gonna Live Forever In Me in Murphy’s memory, the comedian issued a request: “Everybody with a cellphone, put it in your pocket. For just a few minutes tonight, don’t take a picture or video. Let’s make a memory that only we get to have.”
