Dave Chappelle, no fool, has now added a fourth show to his tour stop at the Fillmore Miami Beach this week. Tickets for the new show, set for midnight Saturday night, are on sale now.
Last week Chappelle quickly sold out his show at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, at the Fillmore, prompting a second show to be added for 10:30 p.m. the same night. With that show's tickets gone by Friday morning, a third show was added for 9:30 p.m. Saturday. And now the fourth show, with doors open at 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
The pop-culture curiosity has continued to render the word “enigmatic” woefully insufficient since jumping off the celebrity conveyor belt in 2005 with an abrupt departure from the Comedy Central hit “Chappelle's Show.”
His cloistered existence (settling in Yellow Springs, Ohio) was broken earlier this year by appearances with Chris Rock and others at New York’s Comedy Cellar. He also appeared on the Funny or Die Tour this summer and, by all accounts, Chappelle has killed it in these recent shows, so his Fillmore debut comes with extra electricity.
