Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle cracked jokes about Chappelle's attacker at a super secret comedy show on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Chappelle was tackled by knife-wielding Isaiah Lee, 23, during his comedy set at the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday.

As you know, Rock was slapped by former A-list actor Will Smith during the Oscar Awards on March 27.

The two comedians joked about the incidents at a secret show at The Comedy Store club attended by Kim Kardashian, Sean Combs, and Mos Def.

"At least you got smacked by someone of repute!" Chappelle told Rock. "I got smacked by a homeless guy with leaves in his hair."

Rock snapped back: "I got smacked by the softest n---a that ever rapped."

Twitter was not amused by Rock's jokes.

One Twitter user wrote: "If you got slapped by someone who was "soft", then what does that make you??? It's giving marshmallow, Charmin ultra-soft face a**."

Another Twitter user wrote: "Boooooo that's a trash a** joke try again cuz you still end up getting smacked so if Will is soft then what are you? [sic]"

The Los Angeles County district attorney declined to file felony charges against the man who attacked Dave Chappelle onstage on Tuesday.

Isaiah Lee, 23, was arrested by LAPD after he tackled the 48-year-old comedian during his set at the Hollywood Bowl Tuesday night.

Chappelle was performing as part of the "Netflix Is a Joke" festival when Lee rushed onstage. Police say he was armed with a replica gun with a knife blade inserted in the barrel.

Chappelle was not injured.

Lee was roughed up by security and suffered a dislocated shoulder, a swollen eye and facial lacerations. He was transported to a hospital for treatment, then booked on an assault with a deadly weapon charge. He is being held on $30,000 bond.

Despite being armed with a deadly weapon, the country district attorney's office said "the evidence as presented did not constitute felony conduct."

The case was referred to the Los Angeles attorney for possible misdemeanor charges instead.

A spokesperson for Chappelle said he is cooperating fully in the investigation, and he won't let it overshadow the record-breaking performance at the Hollywood Bowl.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris may be the King of the South, but he is struggling at his second career as a comedian.

T.I. bombed during a standup comedy gig in New York. A loyal reader sent in the video below of the 41-year-old rapper struggling during a comedy show in Brooklyn over the weekend.

The audience laughed - but they were laughing at T.I., rather than with him.

Then the boos began filtering through the crowd. Boos are usually the kiss of death for a comedian.

Being a comedian isn't easy. T.I. is proof that having heart and ambition aren't enough to make it in comedy. Comedians have to be funny and they also need a good delivery and timing.

Steve Harvey's deadpan delivery made him an A-list star. He can joke about a laundry basket and the audience will roar with laughter. It's all in his delivery.

Tip "T.I." Harris is apparently experiencing a midlife crisis. The Grammy Award-winning platinum rapper decided to try his hand as a stand-up comedian at age 41.

But his midlife career change as a comedian is not getting the support from other comedians who worked hard to achieve their success.

In fact, some veteran comedians are insulted that T.I. is doing stand-up comedy.

Veteran comedian Godrey spoke out disapprovingly after T.I. showed up at his comedy gig in Atlanta and asked to follow his headlining set. Godfrey said he didn't take the rapper seriously as a comedian.

"As a headliner, no one is supposed to go up after you. You're not a comedian to me," Godfrey said in a recent podcast.

Godfrey suggested that T.I. was using his clout to perform at popular comedy shows with no comedy experience.

Godfrey advised T.I. to work his way up by performing at open mic nights. He said that a comedian wouldn't show up at a rap concert asking to go on after the headliner.
 

 
Godfrey's criticism cut T.I. deeply.

In a video posted on his Instagram account, T.I. claimed he was invited to the comedy club by the owners, and he called Godfrey a dry hater.

Question: Should T.I. keep his day job?

Mariah Carey is still upset after being called "ni**erish" by comedian Sandra Bernhard during a 1998 comedy routine.

The pop singer told Naomi Campbell about the controversial moment from Sandra's standup comedy special I'm Still Here... Damn It!, when the comedienne accused Mariah of exploiting her biracial ethnicity to further her career.

"She's trying to backtrack on our asses by acting real ni**erish there at the Royalton Hotel suite with Puff Daddy and all the greasy, chain-wearing Black men," Bernhard said during her TV special.

Mariah told Naomi: "I wish I would have called you back when it happened because I was so upset and nobody came to my rescue at that point. But whatever, I can't – it's ignorance."

Naomi called Bernhard's insult "rude and disrespectful" as well as being "completely racist".

"People can be very hurtful," Naomi said, "but one of the things that hurt me, because I care about you and I care about the past, was what Sandra said. I was just like, 'Are you for real?' How did that even slide by?" she continued.

Gesturing at Mariah, who is biracial, Naomi added: "You are Black. You have every right. You are working also, in a professional capacity. I just felt like, now, I wanted to clear that up because I was p**sed."

Mariah is the daughter of former opera singer Patricia, of Irish descent, and Alfred, an aeronautical engineer of Black and Afro-Venezuelan descent.
