Dave Chappelle has some regrets in life with one recently happening.
The comedian is opening up about his last interaction with the late Bob Saget.

Dave Chappelle Has A Major Regret
“I didn’t see Bob’s death coming,” he told the audience. “Man he just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and I never texted him back ’cause I was just busy.”
TMZ obtained the footage from the set.
Typically, it’s forbidden, or at the very least frowned upon, to videotape or take photos during any comedian’s set. However, some venues differ in their photography rules.
His dear friend’s unexpected death was a good reminder to take time for the one’s you cherish.
“Yeah it happens. I’m just saying this to remind you; these moments are precious and when I come out at night, I’m not just hanging out. I’m making memories. S**t, when I go out at night, I’m making history,” he said.
Chappelle also revealed to the audience that he was “gonna go lay his comrade to rest,” today.

On January 11, the actor took to his Instagram and shared a very emotional tribute to Saget.
“I’m not ready to accept that he’s gone – I’m not going to say goodbye yet. I’m going to imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humor. He’s standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet. They’re laughing so hard, they weep,” he wrote. “God, he loves us all so much. And he goes to sleep dreaming of when we’ll all meet again – and he’s smiling. I know in my heart he’s smiling, still hearing the laughter from a few hours before. I’m just not ready to say goodbye yet. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe.”
Rest in paradise, Bob Saget.
