New York, NY (June 12, 2017) - This August, legendary comedian Dave Chappelle returns to New York City’s historic Radio City Music Hall, performing throughout the month as part of his LIVE FROM RADIO CITY Residency. Hot on the heels of two critically-acclaimed Netflix specials, and a record-setting sell out at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Casino, Chappelle brings his unparalleled talents to New York for ten stand-up shows.
During his Residency, Chappelle combines his love of comedy with his appreciation of hip-hop as he shares the bill with some of today’s best comedians and musicians. Special guest artists throughout the run include The Roots, Chris Rock, Erykah Badu, Trevor Noah, Childish Gambino, and Ali Wong, with more to be announced. See below for a full list of dates and confirmed guests.
This Residency marks a triumphant return for Chappelle, who in 2014 sold out Radio City with an unprecedented 10 consecutive comedy performances to the tune of 60,000 tickets. That run marked his first announced performances in New York City in more than 10 years, and included three nights co-headlined by illustrious musical guests.
Tickets for all dates go on sale this Friday, June 16th at ticketmaster.com.
CHASE Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, June 13th at 10am through Thursday, June 15th at 10pm.

About Dave Chappelle:
Dave Chappelle is a comedian, actor, and producer who’s brash, clever, in-your-face brand of humor has made him one of the most respected entertainers of his generation. In March 2017, Chappelle returned to television via streaming giant Netflix with two highly-anticipated specials, The Art of Spin, and Deep in the Heart of Texas, filmed in Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX respectively. The critically-acclaimed specials satisfied his fans and introduced a new legion of followers to his sidesplitting, thought-provoking style of political and social commentary.
In 2005, Chappelle walked away from his groundbreaking sketch comedy show, Chappelle’s Show on Comedy Central. During the 8 years that followed, he performed pop-up stand-up dates, made occasional television appearances, and toured extensively throughout the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. From intimate comedy clubs to theaters and arenas, Chappelle’s live performances often sold out within minutes of being announced.
Comedy Central ranks Chappelle as Number 43 of the “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Esquire Magazine has called him “the comic genius of America,” and he was featured on the cover of GQ Magazine’s Man of the Year issue in 2015. In April 2017, he graced the cover of The New York Times’ T-Magazine.
