Comedian Dave Chappelle may have found a way to outwit the scalpers. Instead of spending months promoting a show, he's giving people 24 hours to cancel their plans and buy tickets to see him perform.

Late on Thursday, March 15, he announced two surprise Denver shows to be held the next day, March 16, at Summit Music Hall, at 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

If you're hoping to go and live-tweet the show or Instagram it — or even check in with the babysitter mid-set — give up now. Neither phones nor cameras will be permitted inside.

Still want to go? So do we.

Tickets, $100 a pop, are on sale now at Ticketfly. For more information, go to the show's Facebook page.
