Return of a champion: Dave Chappelle back in action?

Dave Chappelle did a free show in the middle of Pioneer Square in Portland, Oregon, or tried to anyway. The show took place at 1:00 AM on July 14th. Dave told a few people casually that this would be going on as a seceret show and when showtime came.. over 4,000 people showed up.. Thank you twitter and facebook. Pretty fricken amazing. The show began with Dave urging people not to tell a secret in Oregon and apologizing that he was not prepared for such a large turn out stating that "I didn't know that I was still famous" and sincerely thanked everyone for coming out.. The one speaker that he used (that he brought himself) was the size of a throw pillow, so the crowed could barley hear him.. yet everyone still stayed as long as he did.. Please see article and youtube video below.

Dave Chappelle has always been one if my idols growing up and he is a big reason I got into comedy. I am just happy to see him back in action and hope to see him around a lot more in the near future...

Thousands flock to Pioneer Courthouse Square to see Dave Chappelle
