Chappelle was performing his stand-up routine in the amphitheater as part of the Netflix Is a Joke festival when the man ran up on stage and tackled him. Jamie Foxx was on the wings of the stage and Chappelle thanked him for responding to the attack.

Chris Rock was also there and jokingly asked if the attacker was Will Smith. Chappelle was attacked as he was finishing a routine in which he talked about how comedians have to worry more about their personal safety.
