The Surprise Return of Dave Chappelle
At the height of his fame, Dave Chappelle famously abandoned production of his hit Comedy Central show Chappelle’s Show and boarded a plane to South Africa. In the eight years since he walked away from showbiz, the comedian has only made occasional comedy club appearances and given a handful of interviews.
But this fall, Chappelle is returning to the spotlight, headlining Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival tour with Flight of the Concords. The nationwide tour, which runs through September, will feature multiple stages showcasing a variety of alt-comedy acts.
