Comedian Dave Chappelle surprised Milwaukee last Wednesday when he announced that in less than a week he was coming to Brew City to perform four shows.
Tonight, at the end of his 7 p.m. show at the Pabst Theater, Chappelle surprised audiences again when he said he was donating all of the ticket proceeds to the Molson Coors victims' families.
Allegedly, he came to Milwaukee after hearing about the Molson Coors tragedy because he wanted to contribute to the city's healing. Chappelle performed a benefit show last August in Dayton, Ohio – his hometown – after a mass shooting took place outside a bar.
@DaveChappelle announces he’s donating all profits from tonight’s show in Milwaukee to the victims families of the Miller shootings. I can only assume he’s going to announce that at all four shows. What a dude. — Andy Fabitz (@umphreak85) March 11, 2020
Dave Chappelle gives one of the funniest stand up acts I’ve ever seen and then announces all proceeds are going to the families of the Miller Shooting victims. Absolute class act. — Logan Chrisler (@LoganChrisler) March 11, 2020
