After re-emerging from the his nearly decade-long dormancy, Dave Chappelle returned to comedy by headlining the massive Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival last year. Though the tour was not without incident—proving that, like the Whalers before him, Hartford is incapable of not ruining things—Chappelle has been relatively quiet since the end of that tour. But now he’s announced a (presumably) one-off show at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on June 18, making his first public appearance in the city since he filmed Dave Chappelle’s Block Party in 2004. Tickets for the show go on sale April 4 at 10 a.m., and even though Chappelle is notoriously unpredictable, it’s safe to assume that tickets for this, his first stand-up performance in New York City in over a decade, will go fast.
