Dave Chappelle Playing Surprise Show in Austin

Comedian Dave Chappelle – who after massive success with his “Chappelle’s Show” TV series shunned the spotlight – is performing in Austin tonight.

Chappelle will be performing at the Paramount Theater at 8 p.m. tonight, in an appearance just announced this morning. After turning his back on his provocative comedy series in 2005, Chappelle has instead focused on standup comedy, often playing “secret” shows like this one just announced.

The sale appears to have crashed the Paramount Theater’s website. Reports list ticket prices at $58 – and also state all tickets are gone already.
