Comedian Dave Chappelle was reportedly attacked on stage while performing on Tuesday evening, according to multiple Twitter users and a video.

The video appeared to show a person storming the stage and attempting to tackle the performer while he was telling jokes.

Chappelle appeared at the Hollywood Bowl theatre in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening as part of the Netflix Is A Joke comedy festival.

Another video surfaced appearing to show the comic returning to the stage after the incident.

In it, he thanked actor Jamie Foxx for helping to protect him from the attacker.

“Whenever you’re in trouble, Jamie Foxx will show up in a sheriff’s hat,” Chappelle joked.

He added that he had “stomped” the person backstage, saying that he “always wanted to do that.”

Other videos reportedly showed the attacker in a stretcher being loaded into emergency response vehicles outside the venue.

The incident bore similarity to the now-notorious Oscars fracas on March 27 when Will Smith stormed the stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock for joking about his wife’s hair.
