  • Chappelle hits the Alamo City on June 14-16.

Dave Chappelle, the brilliant comedian who hides his biting social critiques and cultural commentary behind hilarious quips like "White people love Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X," the man who takes on the racial divisions in our diets – "Surprise, motherfuckers! You didn't know I knew about grape juice, did you?" – and the political prophet who predicted the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton will be performing at the Aztec Theatre and we've got two tickets to give away!

All you've got to do is tag us, @sacurrent, in a video of yourself performing one of Dave's uproarious lines listed below, upload it to social media and on Friday May, 27 at 5 p.m. we will announce the winner for the tickets to Dave's 7 p.m. set on Thursday, June 16. Here are the Chappelle catchphrases that we want to see your best impressions of:

1) Dave as Prince: "Why don't you purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka?" 

2) Dave as Lil Jon: Any hilarious variation of Jon's iconic croaking of "What?!" "Oh-kay" and/or "Yeaaahhh!" Get creative, people. 

3) Dave pleading the Fifth: "Um ... No, but I can tell you that I plead the Fiz-ith ... One, two, three, four, Fiiiif!"

So as to avoid any Jason Aldean-as-Lil' Wayne black face debacles, no entries that include the making up of a white person to look more like Dave or one of his African American characters will be accepted. And, I wish it went without saying but, alas, some overzealous Caucasian may try to skate an N-word by – just don't do it. However, other costuming is welcome if it helps to further aid in the perception of the character. These are Dave Chappelle tickets here, folks, so go hard. Like Wayne Brady hard.
