HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Dave Chappelle has struck back at Hartford five days after he was heckled at a show and refused to perform his set.

According to audio posted on TMZ.com, Chappelle praises an audience in Chicago on Tuesday for being “so much better than Hartford.” He tells the crowd that if North Korea were to drop a bomb on the U.S., he hopes it “lands in Hartford, Connecticut.”

To cheers and laughter, he says he “wouldn’t even go back to Hartford for … gas.”

Chappelle was the headliner last Thursday in Hartford at the Funny or Die Presents The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which is touring the country.
