Can you believe it’s been nearly a decade since Dave Chappelle abruptly just took off on all of us from Comedy Central? The only thing we’ve really seen out of Chappelle for the past 8 years is a one off stand up routine in some random place if you’re lucky. There was a picture of him standing on the street looking kind of ripped. But other than that it seems the comedian has all but disappeared from the face of the earth. Well, fear not Dave Chappelle fans. It appears that he’s back.
Funny or Die announced this morning that Chappelle, who has been infamously difficult to track down since he abruptly left The Chappelle’s Show in 2005, will headline the website’s first (annual?) Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. The festival will kick off in Austin, Texas, on August 23rd, the tour will go coast-to-coast over the following five weekends.
Tickets will be going on sale this Friday, June 21st. However, to be safe, you might not want to buy a ticket. There’s just too good a chance that Dave Chappelle may very well disappear again. I’m gonna stick with the Youtube videos.
