Dave Chappelle, Goat Named 'Will Smith' Surprise Crowd at Chris Rock and Kevin Hart NYC Show

A goat named Will Smith and controversial comedian Dave Chappelle were surprise guests at Chris Rock and Kevin Hart’s comedy show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 23.

Video recorded by Andrew Kelly shows the three comedians with the goat on stage for the ‘Only Headliners Allowed’ show. Hart reportedly gifted the animal to Rock, as he considers Rock to be the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T).

Chappelle named the goat Will Smith in reference to Smith striking Rock at the Oscars ceremony in March, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Chappelle had a comedy show cancelled in Minneapolis on July 20 following protests against the comedian for his comments on the transgender community. Credit: Andrew Kelly via Storyful
