Dave Chappelle DVD Signing in Culver City at 3pm

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Sorry for the short notice, but with a guy like Chappelle you never quite know where he'll pop up...or when. Hell we've been waiting for him to re-appear on Comedy Central for years now.

But Los Angelenos, have no fear -- Rick James' favorite stoner is going to be at the Culver City Best Buy today at 3pm to sign his critically acclaimed "Block Party" DVD.

Last night the comedian made a surprise appearance at the Virgin Megastore, where he started signing DVDs at midnight to celebrate the release of the film that earned an impressive 93% fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes.

Roger Ebert gushed, "Dave Chappelle's Block Party is a fairly disorganized film about a fairly disorganized concert, redeemed by the good feeling Chappelle sheds like a sunbeam on every scene."

So if you're over on the Wessssside and want to have a true original sign a DVD at a Best Buy you've got an hour to haul ass. Clock's tickin!
