How’s this for short notice? Dave Chappelle will play four shows at the Pabst Theater next week.
The legendary comedian will perform 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows on Tuesday, March 10, and Wednesday, March 11, the venue just announced. And given the short notice and considerable restrictions put on the show, it seems likely he’ll be performing new material. No cellphones or cameras will be allowed.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 6, at 10 a.m.
