Comedian Dave Chappelle has been doing surprise shows around the Bay Area the last few weeks. Tonight at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., he’ll be doing two more at The Independent on Divisadero Street. Here’s an account from SF Weekly of the show he did at the New Parish in Oakland a couple of weeks ago.

You can buy tickets here, for $55. Sold out. That didn’t take long.
