Dave Chappelle is apparently a big Radiohead fan, always ready to hit karaoke bars, birthday fetes, and Saturday Night Live afterparties with his rendition of “Creep.” And should he ever want some back-up vocals, he could probably pluck just about anyone out of the audience, restaurant, etc. But it turns out his duet…
