Noted Recluse Dave Chappelle Pops Up for Second Night at Cobb's

Posted on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 3:00 PM

He's at it again. Comedian Dave Chappelle, having made impromptu appearances at Bay Area comedy clubs on two consecutive nights, will do the same tonight at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco. In the video clip above, he describes an unbearably funny experience on public transit that may as well have happened in San Francisco -- we're sure you'll recognize some of the attitudes and characters.

The shows are scheduled for 8 and 10:30 p.m., according to club spokeswoman Alicia Albarran. The $55 tickets will be available via the LiveNation website, Albarran wrote in an e-mail.

Chappelle played an unannounced show Wednesday with Lauryn Hill at The New Parish in Oakland, as covered by Ian S. Port on our sister blog, All Shook Down. On Thursday afternoon Cobb's said Chappelle would play two more shows there that night.

Chappelle has been known throughout his career for being impetuous and unpredictable, leaving his show on Comedy Central in 2005, later moving to Ohio and making only limited standup appearances. He has said, however, that doing stand-up is the most important thing to him, and he has complained of network executives having too much creative control over what he does.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
