Chris Rock spilled the tea on a recent episode of the Ellen DeGeneres show.
The comedian and actor said that he and other comics, including Michelle Wolf, David Letterman and Kevin Hart, have been visiting Dave Chapelle’s Ohio farm to put on socially distanced comedy shows during the pandemic.
Rock said Chapelle, who moved to Ohio in 2006, knocked down some of his cornfield to build a stage and host the events, dubbed “Chapelle Summer Camp.”
Rock also said the entertainers have been indulging in copious amounts of weed and mushrooms while visiting. “Dave’s got, like, a weed-mushroom chef that prepares amazing meals with weed and mushrooms,” Rock told DeGeneres.
Rock said while the comedians stop short of the “hard stuff,” there is “way more weed than anyone should have.”
“I was trying to be nice ’cause your show’s on in the daytime, but we do lots of drugs,” Rock said. “We’re in a cornfield in a pandemic. What have you got to lose?”
Rock said it was also a visit to the farm, and a cup of mushroom tea, that prompted comedian Tiffany Hadish to shave her head. “Tiffany Haddish drank the mushroom tea and cut her hair the next day,” Rock said. “I know she likes to act like, ‘Oh, Common told me he loved me with no hair.’ No, it was the mushroom tea talking.”
