Dave Chappelle must like what he's doing, because he shows no sign of stopping. The comedian who made unscheduled appearances last week in San Francisco and Oakland has scheduled two more shows for Tuesday night at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco. In the video clip above, he explains why he'll get high only with white people anymore.

The shows are scheduled for Tuesday at 8 and 10:30 p.m., according to club spokeswoman Alicia Albarran. The $55 tickets will be available via the LiveNation website, Albarran wrote in an e-mail.

Chappelle played an unannounced show Wednesday with Lauryn Hill at The New Parish in Oakland, as covered by Ian S. Port on our sister blog, All Shook Down. On Thursday afternoon Cobb's said Chappelle would play two more shows there that night. He did the same on Friday.

The mans a genius so he will be back as soon as "Hollywood" gets over themselves enough to allow him to be himself.

Dave oh Dave....you are so talented. Why the heck are you not on your own tv show? Wasting your talent in small comedy clubs.

Saw the 10:30 show Friday night with my wife. Never laughed so hard for so long.

Really enjoyed the constant improv because Dave is a magician.

I was there too and really enjoyed the show but to be fair this is not a traditional standup set. It is more like a loose conversation with Dave Chappelle but I found it incredibly entertaining.

I saw Dave Chappelle during the height of his fame and it was amazing however, it was almost word for word what you could see if you bought a CD of his "Killing them softly" special. Which is not abnormal, almost all big acts (Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ray Romano) will do this if you go to see them on tour. Those guys literally add maybe 2 percent improv into their shows.

Last night Dave was so loose with his act ( if you could even call it that) that he would literally not tell a joke for three to four minutes and would allow almost any type of interaction from the audience.

I think Dave has moved on to a kind of elder statesman or experimental point in his career where he is literally getting on stage and to a certain extent improving a lot of his set. For a hour plus set this is incredibly impressive and there is almost no one else out there right now that could pull this off which I believe he did.

However, if you don't have the patience and want to see someone who systematically pumps out the punchlines in a succinct and organized manner than this is probably not for you.

Oh yeah and Dave looked like he has been hitting the shit out of the Gym since he quit his show and he still loves the cigs.

To sum it up : Still Dave. Still Dangerous.

I saw dave last night at Cobbs and was disappointed to say the least. Though I read some mixed reviews on live nation, I told myself 'come on its chappelle', then popped for the $70 ticket.

Once he walked on stage I thought all my worries were out the window, but after a few quick openers that everyone laughed at just because of his voice, chappelle really started to falter. He brought very little energy and let obnoxious drunk audience members dictate his jokes and the pace of the show. All along I wanted to hear a solid chunk of pure chappelle material, but he kept playing off what the audience had to say (which was never funny or insightful). What really got to me was the that dave clearly knows he's a different act now and probably even knows his material isn't what it used to be. Yet he continues to force these shows as if he really just needs the money now.

I don't mean to harp too hard on the guy- his show and even earlier standup was about the best comedy of a generation. But it appears that time is over, and seeing him now is a little bit depressing.
