Monthlong Dave Chappelle Comedy Tour Starts In Texas
NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Dave Chappelle is making his most substantial return to stand-up comedy with a one-month tour for Funny Or Die.
The comedian will headline the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, which kicks off August 23 in Austin. The 13-date, two-stage tour also includes stops in Dallas and Houston. The tour wraps up on September 22 in Phoenix.
The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in comedy clubs. But he has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, “Chappelle’s Show,” in 2005.
Also on the bill are Flight of the Conchords, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal and Al Madrigal.
