Washington [US], May 22 (ANI): Actor and comedian John Mulaney's recent show in Ohio got a star opener in the form of Dave Chappelle, who came for a visit from his nearby Yellow Springs home to help out.

According to Deadline, a joke that offended some audience members including a couple who briefly engaged with him was about his recent encounter with a stage crasher at the Hollywood Bowl.

Chappelle said, "I mean, it wasn't a gun, it was a knife! A gun that identifies as a knife?" He reportedly also cracked a homophobic joke where he said, "Maybe you two are gay, I don't know, nothing wrong with that if that's the case."

At the conclusion of the opening set, Mulaney came onstage and hugged Chappelle.
