Its been 10 years since Dave Chappelle performed a major show in NYC. But now in June, he will return to the city at Radio Music Hall to drop off his most recent material.
For the first time in ten years, comedian Dave Chappelle will make a public appearance in New York City. Chappelle hasn’t performed in NYC since the comedian filmed the documentary ‘Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” in Brooklyn during 2004, but he will return for a headlining performance at Radio City Music Hall on June 19. Since leaving Comedy Central’s ‘Chappelle’s Show’ in 2005, Chappelle had largely stayed out of the public eye until co-headlining the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival with Flight of the Concords last fall. As you would expect, the festival was very popular over the 14 dates and has a $138 average ticket price on the secondary market. It also received welcome reviews from both fans and critics. Continuing his return to stand-up, Chappelle embarked on a headlining tour through Australia in February. The original plan of the tour was to play six dates in the country’s major cities — Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney — before five more shows were added due to overwhelming demand for Dave Chappelle tickets. All six of the original shows sold out within minutes of going on sale on the primary market and an additional show time was added to each date on the tour. It’s likely similar demand would be seen for domestic Chappelle performances, especially for a single show at Radio City. Tickets go on sale to the general public for the Radio City show this Friday and the listed face price for primary market tickets range from $59 to $79.
