John Mayer & Dave Chappelle Announce “Controlled Danger” Show In Las Vegas

first_imgJohn Mayer and Dave Chappelle have announced that they will reprise their music/comedy duo show, Controlled Danger, on Sunday, December 30th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.The ongoing tag-team project has started to become something of a tradition following its last-minute, two-night debut at The Fillmore in San Francisco in April of last year, during which Bob Weir joined in for a tune. Chappelle and Mayer reprised Controlled Danger in December of 2017, mounting a much larger performance at The Forum in Inglewood, CA on New Year’s Eve.At the shows, the two entertainers both sing songs and tell jokes, giving them each a chance to try their hand at the other’s craft—buoyed by their long-running friendship and the charismatic chemistry it affords them. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in September, Mayer spoke about his duo performances with Dave Chappelle. As John joked:Advice to anyone who’s struggling as a stand-up comic, one of the best things that you can do is just stand next to Dave Chappelle onstage. If you get the opportunity. He’s better at what he does than anybody is at anything they do. That’s why you go see Dave. He’s a great comic, but you’re also watching someone just nail something. … All I have to do is say two funny things and people walk out going “those guys were hilarious!” …As much as I wanna be a comic, I get a couple jokes in. And then he wants to be a singer, and he’ll sing a couple songs. He’ll sing “Creep”… and I bet you think its the TLC “Creep”, but it’s the Radiohead “Creep”.He went on to marvel at Chappelle’s ability to command a crowd—even when singing—telling a story about watching Chappelle softly start singing Prince‘s “1999” only to have the entire audience singing along with the track’s famous synth lines by the time he hit the chorus. “He’s one of the greatest leaders of a room I’ve ever seen,” Mayer explained.

Solo mum blocks male bonding session

first_imgSunday Star Times 2 June 2013A father-son bonding session planned by a North Island primary school was cancelled after a single mother demanded to be included.Two “Band of Brothers” seminars were arranged by Matakana School to help fathers get more involved in their sons’ lives, and as a forum for dads to share their issues. One session was for dads and another was for fathers and sons.A solo mum wanted to attend but was told she couldn’t because her presence would inhibit discussion. She was told a mother and son seminar was planned for later in the year.“We really just wanted an opportunity for the guys to open up and chat, and they wouldn’t particularly want to do if there were females around – which I think is understandable,” said principal Darrel Goosen.The woman’s son was welcome at the second seminar and the guest speaker offered a specific session with her and her son but she continued to insist on attending, Goosen said, so the school board decided to cancel the event.“In hindsight we realise we may have offended some single parents, for which we apologise, as this was never our intention,” said a school note to families.Family First director Bob McCroskie yesterday said the decision to cancel the event meant fathers had lost a crucial bonding opportunity with their sons.“Unfortunately it seems to be a society problem that we get held hostage by one person who gets offended,” he said.“I think the fact they were having other programmes specifically for mums shows that they are not ignoring their needs.“Schools are starting to realise the importance of dads being actively involved in the education of their kids.”Other parenting experts said male-only groups were important to get men talking. read more
