DETROIT – An inspiring evening awaits as comedy icon Dave Chappelle brings his unparalleled wit to Detroit on Thursday, July 11th. The event promises to be more than just a night of laughter, as actor and activist Hill Harper, who is running for U.S. Senate in Michigan, will host a VIP reception following the show.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m., with the show commencing at 7:30 p.m. Ticket options range from $250 for limited balcony seating to $3,300 for the exclusive Gold Circle plus VIP reception. The reception with Harper offers a unique opportunity to engage with the Senate candidate in an intimate setting. Location details for the VIP reception will be provided upon ticket confirmation.

Dave Chappelle’s career, which began in the 1990s, has been marked by his fearless social commentary and sharp humor. Known for his groundbreaking “Chappelle’s Show,” Chappelle has consistently used his platform to address pressing social issues, including race relations, police brutality, and the importance of civic engagement. His stand-up specials have further solidified his status as one of the most influential comedians of our time.

Hill Harper is renowned for his roles in “CSI: NY” and “The Good Doctor,” but his accomplishments extend far beyond acting. A lawyer, union organizer, and single father, Harper owns a well-known coffee shop in Detroit. Raised in the Midwest by two doctors, Harper learned early on the importance of public service and the purpose of life—to make life better for everyone. His commitment to service was evident as he campaigned as a top surrogate for his Harvard Law School classmate, President Barack Obama, and served on President Obama’s Cancer Panel. Harper has written several best-selling books aimed at empowering marginalized young people and established a charitable foundation that provides scholarships, mentorships, and grants to help youth achieve their dreams.

Harper is running for U.S. Senate to ensure every Michigan citizen has economic security and real representation focused on the people, not lobbyists or wealthy donors. His campaign emphasizes independence over conformity and service over personal ambition, reflecting his lifelong dedication to public service.

The event is expected to sell out quickly, emphasizing the need for prompt ticket purchases. With options tailored to various preferences, attendees can choose from limited balcony seating at $250, general admission at $500, Gold Circle at $1,000, and the premium Gold Circle plus VIP reception at $3,300.

This event is also a strict no-cell-phone show. Attendees are required to leave their phones in their cars or at home. Upon arrival, all phones, smartwatches, and accessories will be secured in individual Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the event. Guests maintain possession of their devices at all times, ensuring an uninterrupted and immersive experience. All attendees are subject to a pat-down and wanding, with immediate ejection for anyone caught with a cell phone inside the venue.

The evening with Dave Chappelle and Hill Harper is not just about entertainment; it is a call to action. By attending, guests are supporting Harper’s Senate campaign and engaging in a dialogue about critical social and political issues. This event highlights the power of community and collective action, urging attendees to become active participants in the political process.
