It’s no big surprise that tickets to see one of the most popular comedians of our time at Belk Theater went like hot cakes — and led to a second and third show add (if not sold out already, they will be soon). Dave Chappelle remains a spearhead in the stand-up world despite his abrupt departure from Chappelle’s Show in the middle of the third season. Since then, he’s taken a rather low profile, leaving a void in the comedy scene — only filled with the occasional pop-up gigs, like this mini-tour stop in the Q.C. Rumors are circulating on the Internet about a stand-up super tour between Chappelle and Chris Rock in the future. So is this his big comeback before he hits the road with a partner in crime? We really can’t say, judging by Chappelle’s unpredictable behavior and what seems to be a fancy for reclusivity. But we do think this is one of those shows that shouldn’t be missed.
