Actor Monroe Flame appeared to be one of the few members of the transgender community to support Dave Chappelle on his jokes about trans people… and the two eventually met.
representative of the flame Camille Johnson tells TMZ … she flew to Ohio from LA to see Dave for the first time on Thursday … ending up at his show at the Wirrig Pavilion in Yellow Springs that night.
Flame, who describes herself as “a comedian who happens to be transgender”, was there to support Dave.
As to whether the two actors will collaborate on a project, the jury has not yet been elected.
As you know, Dave took a lot of heat after saying jokes about the trans community during his Netflix special, “The Closer” … some people were up in arms and the the fallout continued for months. Recently, one of his shows had to be moved at the last minute after the the place unplugged.
Flame, however, didn’t think he deserved all the hate…because she says nothing in the comedy world is off limits—and she just doesn’t believe in standup censorship.
