"John, if you would, there was a night, maybe four months ago, where we were at Hotel Café in L.A.", Chappelle said. He was the subject of popular sketches in which Murphy retold his adventures with younger brother Eddie Murphy and celebrities like Prince and Rick James. After Chappelle's Show, Murphy continued to tour and appear in numerous films and TV projects.

In the fan-captured video, Chappelle reminisced about Mayer's 2004 guest appearance on his hit sketch comedy show. "You were doing a show for 120 people".
