One of the Chappelle’s Shows most memorable sketches came when Charlie Murphy sat in front of the camera to detail different stories, True Hollywood Stories. For one of the segments Charlie explained his game of one on one with singer Prince which he shared some time ago about running into Prince about the sketch. In a now surfaced video, Charlie shares Prince’s reaction to the sketch during an interview in Houston on 97.9, The Box. Fellow comedian Freez Luv joined the conversation to better detail their run-in with Prince.
“We were in the Rio (club) in Las Vegas, then someone said, “You want to go see Prince?” We were like “Yea let’s go see Prince…”. We finally got in and he was performing all around the club, and right as he came to the entrance, we met up… fate had us met up. And he was playing and then he saw Charlie and was like “Psssssssssst” (In disapproval). He stopped and looked him up and down….”
In case you haven’t seen the skit in question on the Chappelle’s Show, here it is. Enjoy!
