Last week - seemingly out of nowhere - Dave Chappelle dropped the announcement that he would be performing FOUR shows in Milwaukee.

It was random - but at the end of the day, he's one of the few comedians who can do that without promotion and still SELL THEM OUT. 

Last night during the first round of shows, he came out after the set and announced that he was saddened to hear the news about the MolsonCoors shootings, he knew Milwaukee needed some cheering up...so he booked FOUR SHOWS!

BUT - he also revealed that he would be donating proceeds from the show to the Molson Coors victim's families. 

Gave me goosebumps just typing that last sentence.  How freaking COOL is that?  

It should be noted that this isn't the first time he's brought cheer to a city after tragedy.  Back in August of last year, he did some benefit shows in his hometown of Dayton, Ohio after a shooting that took place outside of a bar.  

Thanks, Dave!  Milwaukee feels the love, and we appreciate the support!
