So Dave Chappelle surprised Portland by showing up for a 1 a.m. show at Pioneer Square early this morning/late last night. There was no sound and no one could hear anything, but still. Dave Chappelle impromptu in Portland. By all accounts it was exciting/disappointing.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “Chappelle repeatedly praised the peaceful crowd for coming out, cracking a few jokes about the chaotic scene around him, including people (in various stages of undress) congregating up on rooftops at the square.”
Chappelle’s been MIA for five years and yet he still can draw a crowd like this at 1 a.m. on a Tuesday night in Portland. Damn straight. Wish I coulda been there, but I was too tired to make the trek down there and it was supposedly a rumor. Damn rumors that are true.
