Comedian Dave Chappelle to Shoot Hoops with the Minnesota Timberwolves
Comedian Dave Chappelle has made the Twin Cities his home for the past week, doing a few shows at First Ave in Minneapolis. He will cap off his week with a shoot-around with members of the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.
Dave and the members of the T-Wolves will hit the court at Target Center at Midnight on Sunday, with doors opening an hour before at 11pm Saturday night. Entry to the undoubtedly humor-filled night of basketball will be free for the first 1,000 people that show up, but there’s a catch. You’ll have to have a ticket, receipt, or electronic proof purchase for a ticket to one of his last 12 shows before the event (including Saturday night’s show at Pentages in Minneapolis).
In a press release for the event, it is announced pancakes will be served; which is a reference Chappelle fans will enjoy. In an episode the Comedy Central skit show Chappelle Show, Dave plays Minnesota musician Prince, who plays a pickup basketball game against Eddie Murphy’s brother. Following the game, Prince serves everyone pancakes.
