Newsflash: Dave Chappelle Will Be at Bayou Music Center on December 13

Call it what you want -- a pleasant surprise, a shocking turn of events, a Christmas miracle -- but today brings exciting news for Houston comedy fans: Dave Chappelle will be visiting us again. And soon.

Like, really soon. A week from Saturday (December 13), to be precise.

Tickets for the show go on sale Tuesday at noon, and if you want to purchase them you should probably start rearranging your lunch schedule accordingly because this show will probably sell out quick. This will be Chappelle's first show in Houston proper in something like forever. His most recent trip to the Houston area was up in The Woodlands last August as part of the Oddball Comedy Festival, where we noted that he still had a ways to go on the comeback trail. We, like many of you, are looking forward to seeing what kind of difference a year (plus a few months) makes.
