Blog: Dave Chappelle coming to Colorado Springs

Here's one I never thought we'd get in Colorado Springs -- Dave Chappelle. The popular comedian, actor and screenwriter will do one show on Sept. 16 at the Pikes Peak Center.

He's done some Denver shows in the last couple of years, but this might be his first time ever coming to the Springs.

Chappelle made a name for himself in the 1998 cult film "Half Baked." He co-wrote and starred in the comedy about three not super bright guys who try and get a buddy out of jail.

I best know him from his sketch comedy show, "Chappelle's Show," that ran from 2003-2005 on Comedy Central. He did some rich impersonations of Prince, Charlie Murphy and Rick James.

In 2005, in the middle of filming the third season of the show, Chappelle caused quite a kerfuffle when he quit and took off for South Africa. He eventually made his way back to stand-up comedy.

What: Dave Chappelle

When: Sept. 16

Where: Pikes Peak Center, 190 S. Cascade Ave.

Tickets: $58; on sale Friday, Aug. 14.; 520-7469, ticketswest.com, pikespeakcenter.com
