Dave Chappelle Kickin’ It With Trans Comedian Flame Monroe … After She Backed His Comedy

Comedian Flame Monroe appeared to be mostly of the members of the transgender community who supported Dave Chappelle over his jokes about trans people … and both finally met.
Flame’s rep Cammie Johnson tells TMZ … she flew out to Ohio from L.A. to see Dave for the very first time Thursday … meeting up at his show at the Wirrig Pavilion in Yellow Springs that night.
Flame, who describes herself as “a comedian that occurs to be transgender,” was there to aid Dave — unclear should they hung out before or following the show, but we’re told this is quite a long time coming.
For if the two comedians will collab on a project, the jury’s still out.
You may already know, Dave took some serious heat after telling jokes concerning the trans community during his Netflix special, “The Closer” … some individuals were up in arms and the fallout continued for months. Recently one of is own shows needed to be moved at the final minute following the venue pulled the plug.
Flame, however, didn’t think he deserved all of the hate … because she says in the wonderful world of comedy, there is nothing off-limits — and she simply doesn’t have confidence in censoring standups.
