If you missed out on tickets to Dave Cheppelle's six-night residency at beautiful Thalia Hall this week, you've got one last chance to get your hands on tickets this afternoon for a Tuesday, Dec. 8, performance.

Chappelle will wrap up his residency with a Juke Joint style celebration with a performance that part stand up comedy, part musical concert featuring harmonica player Frédéric Yonnet and hip hop legend DJ D-Nice. Chappelle's take on the modern juke joint is inspired by the musical traditions of the Deep South and promises a journey through Chappelle's personal playlist ranging from Coltrane to Nirvana.

"These virtuosos have toured with legends like Stevie Wonder and Prince," said Chappelle in a prepared release. "Their instrumental interpretations - a mix of jazz, rock, R&B, layered with hip-hop, is so electrifying, it like the capturing of lighting in a bottle."

The show is expected to be similar to Chappelle's original Barnyard Juke Joint he hosted in his hometown of Yellow Springs, Ohio.

Tickets for the Juke Joint show at Thalia Hall go on sale at 3 p.m. today at Ticketmaster. Good luck!
