    I wish I was going to be in town to attend. I've liked what I've seen of his.

    I saw its a extremely restrictive show for cameras. They even require you to lock up your smart phone so you are unable to record anything. Its locked in a pouch and they lock it before you go in and unlock it for you when you leave. You keep possession but can not access it.

    Assuming I can get a ticket this will be my third Dave Chappelle show. Saw him in Ames in 13 and awhile back he was at Hoyt Sherman.

    I like that he does this. We get so addicted to our phones. You can live without them for a couple of hours. Comedians use these live shows to test material for future specials.

    I agree, and I was looking into the tech pretty heavily last night just to see how it works. It's good that it forces people to just enjoy it, not try to profit, yet you still get to keep posesssion and walk out with it.

    I'm sure people will sneak recording devices into some of his shows like they do beers at Jack Trice, it's not hard. Just watch any comedian special though and they are trying out stuff constantly on the road, and it may end up in a special some day. broadcasting it online hinders that process. Hense the need for these restrictions.

    Or the freedom to tell un-pc jokes they cant do elsewhere (my favorites).

    Except there is no tinfoil. Maybe read what I wrote. It was a question wondering. Not saying that is why he did so. Nice attempt

    I don't use ticketmaster often, but I really can't understand why they show tickets that are unavailable... I probably had to select 30 different seats before I was able to get through without the "sorry... another fan beat you" notice.

    ticketmaster's online system is a total piece of ****. Feel bad for anybody that has to use it.

    I only had to deal with 1 of those. For delivery I originally choose the option where your phone is the ticket but don't want to deal with the locking up of my phone (previous Dave shows I leave it in the car) so I switched to will call.

    Yep! I happened to be off of work, sick, that day and got 2nd row tickets. Was actually underwhelmed at his set. Same with Tom Segura when he was at the Funny Bone a few years back. Iliza Schelzinger(sp) is the most recent one we've seen who has killed it.

    I saw Wait Wait last night, and it's the most Iver ever seen Civic Center ushers go after phone users. There are like a 100 seats in some rows there and ushers will climb over 40 people to get to the phone users.

    Saw him at Hoyt Sherman 2 years ago or so, it was fun, but was only $40/ticket.

    He originally was doing one show but the show that went on sale sold out in like 10 minutes and he did a second show due to high demand.

    I love Dave but this locking bag pisses me off. I'm a ******* adult, and I am not addicted to my ******* phone. Forcing me to lock out in a bag is beyond over kill.

    Your anger and profanity in this post would suggest otherwise.
