Dave Chappelle 

When: Wed., Sept. 16, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: $58

Actually, there are second acts in American lives; they just tend to be more low-key. Prince slipped off the charts after his "unpronounceable symbol" phase, but never quit making albums. Steven Georgiou ditched his music career as Cat Stevens, then resurrected it as Yusuf Islam. Even Lindsay Lohan is back in the non-tabloid press, thanks to her spoken-word verse on a new Duran Duran single. And then there's Dave Chappelle. The celebrity comic went into seclusion nearly a decade ago, after becoming convinced he was perpetuating the same stereotypes he set out to satirize. Chappelle's second act finds him scaling back to a microphone, a stage, and a legion of fans who recognize a comic genius when they see one. If you've got the spare cash, you can still find tickets from online resellers for tonight's 7 o'clock show at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). — Bill Forman
