Sound On 🔊: Dave Chappelle had a surprise star-studded comedy show called “The Process” at the Peppermint Club in West Hollywood on Wednesday night.
LeBron James, Katt Williams, Jon Stewart, Michael Che, John Mayer and more were in attendance to grab a laugh. Will Smith surprised the room with his debut his first stand up routine with positive reviews. No videos of that, though.

The standing-room-only crowd was caught off guard when Will Smith took the stage, primed for his stand-up comedy debut. And, of course, he killed, with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and daughter, Willow, beaming up at him from the audience.
No, it’s not a new career path; it was a one-night-only performance. Inspired by his upcoming 50th birthday, Smith said he had decided to cross doing stand-up off the top of his bucket list. Luckily for fans not in attendance, the performance was being filmed for his upcoming show called — what else? — “The Bucket List.” (He plans to bungee jump from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on his actual birthday next week.)
Smith joked about “losing control of his house,” with his wife filming her “Red Table Talk” Facebook Watch series and his son Jaden recording albums at home, leaving him to find out about it on Spotify. When Smith asked Jaden for permission to jump on the remix to his hit “Icon,” there was pushback. “He looked at me like I was the second-best rapper in the house!” Smith said.
