Funnyman Dave Chappelle stormed off stage at a gig on his comeback tour on Thursday night (29Aug13) after suffering a barrage of abuse from hecklers, according to reports.

The comedian was performing at a venue in Hartford, Connecticut as part of his series of shows with the Flight of the Conchords duo but his set ended on a bad note after just a few minutes.

After rebuking the audience for heckling him, Chappelle sat quietly on a stool for 25 minutes before leaving the stage, according to editors at NBC Connecticut.

The cult comedian returned to the spotlight this month (Aug13) after keeping a low profile since walking away from his hit Tv programme, Chappelle's Show, in 2005.
