Dave Chappelle is coming to town! The critically acclaimed actor and comedian will be performing six shows at the Comedy Works Downtown in Larimer Square. Tickets go on sale this morning at 10:30 am via their website, but if you’re fast enough there are still some available right now for $156 Doors officially open up everywhere else on Sept 30th so don’t miss your chance because these gigs are surely going fast!!
The Comedy Works is a strict no cell phone allowed show. All phones will be placed in locked pouches and anyone caught with one on them may have their device taken away from them or even receive an immediate body search!
Chappelle has talked about his no cellphone policy in the past.
“There’s a lot of reasons,” said Chapelle. “One, it became a thing where I’d walk on stage, I’d see a sea of cellphones, so I knew that anything in the room, I was saying to everybody, whether they were in the room or not, which is not an empowering feeling as a comedian.”
“The other thing is comedians need an element of surprise, so if someone sees a joke that I’m doing, then I’ve got to do whole new jokes that I couldn’t write fast enough.”
Comedy Works is no longer requiring proof of vaccination or negative tests to attend its shows! The club, which operates venues in downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center said face coverings will remain optional.
