Before John Mulaney made a career for himself as a comedian, he was a temp at Comedy Central and had the awkward task of interrupting an important meeting to tell network executives that its biggest star at the time, Dave Chappelle, “is gone.”While promoting his new Netflix special “John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch” on Sirius XM’s “Netflix Is a Joke,” Mulaney said that part of his job description as a temp at CC at the time involved manning the phones. He was put to the test when the call came in that Chappelle had abandoned production on “The Chappelle Show” and ran off to Africa.“They were like, ‘You have to interrupt the meeting and tell them,'” Mulaney remembered. “I was like, ‘OK!’ I went in and was like, ‘So … Dave Chappelle’s gone.'”Also Read: John Mulaney Says It's Time for 'Perverted Garnish' Mistletoe to 'Be MeToo-ed' (Video)After some convincing that Chappelle was really gone and not simply late, executives turned their focus to securing whatever footage had already been shot for the show’s third season.“They were going to put me on a plane that day and send me to L.A. to get the physical tapes — so they couldn’t be destroyed — and fly back to New York with them,” Mulaney said. “And that was interesting, but it felt like a hindrance to being a comedian.”So Mulaney quit that job, moving on — not decamping to another hemisphere, but freelancing as a copywriter while pursuing a career as a stand-up.“John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch” is currently streaming on Netflix.Read original story John Mulaney Broke the News to Comedy Central Execs That Dave Chappelle Abandoned His Show At TheWrap

A U.S. military base in South Korea accidentally blared an alert siren instead of a bugle call, causing a brief scare just as the U.S. and its allies are monitoring for signs of provocation from North Korea, which has warned it could send a “Christmas gift” over deadlocked nuclear negotiations. The siren at Camp Casey, which is near the border with North Korea, went off by “human error" at around 10 p.m. Thursday, said Lt. Col. Martyn Crighton, a public affairs officer for the 2nd Infantry Division. The incident came a day before Japanese broadcaster NHK caused panic by mistakenly sending a news alert saying North Korea fired a missile over Japan that landed in the sea off the country’s northeastern island of Hokkaido early Friday.
