Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
