Dave Chappelle

'Crashes' 'Today' Show

breaking news

Dave Chappelle Today ShowDave Chappelle was banging on the window at the "Today" show this morning -- but the stunt was just as transparent as the glass.

Matt Lauer feigned surprise when he just happened to notice the comedian hyping his show from outside.

Lauer took a break so he could walk outside and interview Chappelle about his upcoming shows at Radio City Music Hall ... and it was just plain weird.  Lauer happened to know the first 5 shows sold out immediately, so Dave is there trying to sell tickets to 4 additional shows.

The way to sell ... be funny.  And it really wasn't. 

Maybe Dave isn't a morning guy.

Are you guys for real? Did you really believe that was real for a sec? Of course it's planned! Give these guys some credit, it's just advertising. Dave is a funny man. We've all had bad days at work, and his recent Shows where this was apparent shouldn't sully his full body of work.
