Chance the Rapper periodically holds “Open Mike” events for Chicago-area high schoolers, providing a platform for young performers to show off their skills. Every so often, he’ll bring along a special surprise guests, and it doesn’t get much bigger than the man who showed up on Monday night. Dave Chappelle took the stage to the delight of the crowd, delivering a stand up set filled with encouragement for the youth in attendance.

Check out footage of Chappelle’s appearance, during which he also took questions from the audience, below.

Chance himself also delivered some inspirational words — and danced with some of the performers, including Chicago Bulls small forward Jimmy Butler.
