Dave Chappelle Heckled, Stops Performance

HARTFORD, Conn. (August 30, 2013)--Fans were upset after Dave Chappelle abruptly ended his headlining set at a Connecticut comedy show because of hecklers and left the stage after telling only a few jokes.

Chappelle was the closing act Thursday night at the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Conn.

But fans say he stopped his routine after only a few minutes.

He sat on a stool making comments about the situation and responding to hecklers until the end of what evidently was his contractually mandated time on stage.

The Oddball Fest posted a tweet asking Hartford to "pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!"

Some fans said the situation was awkward, and some say they should get refunds.
