Dave Chappelle's surprise show demonstrates power of social networking

From today's Oregonian article by Joseph Rose and Rachel Bachman:

"Carrying an amplifier the size of a toaster, Dave Chappelle showed up for an impromptu comedy show in the middle of the night at Pioneer Courthouse Square. He wound up getting a lesson in the power of social networking.

"Drawn by rumors on Twitter and Facebook of a free performance, thousands of people packed into the downtown Portland square after midnight on Wednesday."

Cool! I had now idea he did this. I hope he returns to show bussiness, he was SO funny. Thanks for the post Mike.

I agree with you Nick, Dave Chappelle is one of the funniest people alive. It would be great if he would do a concert film every once in a while, like HBO did with Carlin for decades.
