Chris Redd Labeled Attack Outside Comedy Cellar in New York as ‘A Planned Situation’

Former Saturday Night Live comic, Chris Redd feels the assault against him earlier this year was not a random attack and was “a planned situation.”

Redd recently appeared on SiriusXM‘s The Bennington Show and expressed to the show’s host, Ron Bennington that a recent attack on him didn’t appear to be a random incident. The comic was assaulted outside of a popular New York City comedy club, the Comedy Cellar in October.

When Bennington asked him if the man who attacked him was “laying” for him or was he just an “unlucky New Yorker?”

Redd responded by saying, “That’s the thing. People called it a random attack. I don’t believe that. He waited for me, I watched the footage. He waited for me an hour before I got there. He was on the phone, he had a lookout dude and everything. All I’m saying is this, I’ve never done nothing random where it took me an hour to do it. Alright, I’ve never just randomly did a thing that took a build-up. That’s not what random is. So I’ma say, it was a planned situation. That’s what I feel in my heart and soul. That’s what I saw on the footage.”

He stated that he will speak about this in the future, possibly releasing the surveillance video and doing a voiceover on it. He did admit that he had a TV special right before the incident and that the assault was possibly the best thing to happen since it helped promote the comedy special.

He did give an update about the capture of the man who attacked him. He said the police gave him positive feedback that the man would be caught since the assault was caught on video. That quickly turned to the police detective ghosting him recently.

“They have footage of him. and they were confident. The cops were confident at first. The first week they were like, ‘We’re gonna find this man. We’re gonna lock him up.'”

“And then the second week they were like, ‘We’re getting real close. We’re gonna lock him up. We just gotta get his face. He walked a couple blocks and we’re following him through cameras.'”

“And then last week he was like, ‘I don’t know, man.’ And then I texted him this week, he ghosted me! I got ghosted by the Chief of Police.”
