HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Fans are upset after Dave Chappelle stopped 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. 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 apparently 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 say the whole thing was awkward, and some say they should get refunds. A representative for Chappelle couldn't be reached Friday.
