For years now, comedian Dave Chappelle has stayed out of the limelight, eschewing the fame he gained for his hit Comedy Central TV show Chappelle's Show. Instead of drawing crowds in with worldwide comedy tours, Chappelle has been living a quiet live with his family on a farm in rural Ohio.
Back in March, Chappelle showed up at a New York comedy club and teased a possible joint comedy tour with Chris Rock. This week, the rumors and teasing of Chappelle's return to comedy are over.
Funny or Die has just announced the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, headlined by none other than Dave Chappelle. The comedy tour will also feature Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Kristin Schaal, and Flight of the Conchords. A second stage with even more comedic performances will be at the shows, hosted by Brody Stevens.
The tour will run from August 23 until September 20 and will be hitting major U.S. locations such as New York, Dallas, Chicago, Austin, and Boston. Tickets for the events will be up for sale on Friday.
