If you weren’t at the Comedy Cellar in New York on Wednesday night, you’re going to wish you were. Some of the world’s greatest comedians came together for a once-in-a-lifetime show.
Here’s what went down: Following Jerry Seinfeld‘s bit, Chris Rock—yes, we just said Chris Rock following Jerry (effing) Seinfeld—hit the stage to practice for his upcoming “Total Blackout Tour,” which begins mid-February. And what’s a little help from some friends?
While performing, he got some unanticipated participation from Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari
One of the comedians of the night, Jon Laster, explained further.
“Tonight I was humbled and blessed to have been a part of the greatest show EVER in the history of the Comedy Cellar and maybe comedy period,” he captioned a photo with Schumer, Chappelle and Rock. “We were sitting on the steps when Dave Chappelle told the manager that he didn’t wanna go on, he just wanted to watch Jerry Seinfeld go on, and then he was leaving. He quickly changed his mind and decided to go up. He and Chris Rock then went back and forth about who would be next.”
An audience member was just as blown away as Laster, wondering how a Wednesday night show turned into one of the greatest comedic moments of all time.
Both Schumer and Rock took to Instagram to gush about the amazing experience, too. Schumer shared a photo on stage with Chappelle and Rock, writing, “A night to remember.” Rock shared back-to-back photos of the group, noting, “Next time you should come.”
