Comedian Dave Chappelle did not accept his award but was later seen at the award show. More details inside…
Dave Chappelle had a straightforward explanation behind not accepting his Best Comedy Album award at the 2020 Grammys on Sunday night, January 26. The Mark Twain Prize winner wasn’t keeping away from an acknowledgment speech or avoiding the ceremony — he just couldn’t make it to the Staples Center in time. Because of inquiries with respect to his whereabouts from Page Six and Vulture, an agent for the entertainer uncovered he was just running late because of traffic.”I wish I had a superior answer, however it was simply #LATraffic,” the rep noted.
Moderators Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker acknowledged the honor for Chappelle’s benefit since he wasn’t in the crowd when the Best Comedy Album winner was reported. However, a few fans were astounded by his nonattendance when they saw him in the crown soon thereafter. At a certain point, Chappelle was in any event, sitting with the previously mentioned Carlile. However, things being what they are, the previous Comedy Central star was simply fashionably late.
Chappelle won the Grammy for Best Comedy Album for his Netflix standup special Sticks and Stones. The success denoted his third continuous triumph in the category.
