Last Friday night, TV One and CNN analyst Roland S. Martin took in Dave Chappelle’s stand-up show in Miami. When Chappelle’s set began to take a nosedive after some hecklers in the audience began to get the best of the elusive comedian, Martin did what reporters do best. He reported on it, using Twitter.

The next evening, both Chappelle and Martin attended former Heat player Alonzo Mourning’s “Zo’s Summer Groove” charity event at Seminole Hard Rock casino and hotel. Martin took to his personal blog to explain what had happened the night before while Chappelle took the opportunity to apologize for his bizarre performance, explaining that he’d had a “bad attitude” before going on to perform a successful 10-minute set.
