Dave Chappelle playing Radio City Music Hall, first announced NYC gig in almost a decade

Dave Chappelle set ticket-sales records last July at Just For Laughs in Montreal, then crossed the United States in a rollercoaster of an outdoor arena tour that put the oddballs in Oddball Fest. North America went crazy for Chappelle. As did Australia.

For almost a decade, though, the only time you got to see Chappelle perform stand-up in New York City was when you were lucky enough to already be at a comedy club when he decided to drop-in as an unannounced special guest.

But you cannot go to the Comedy Cellar every night and just hope he shows up. I mean, I’ll likely go to the Cellar anyhow. That’s me, though.

Everybody has a chance to see Dave Chappelle perform stand-up in NYC in 2014 — June 19, 2014 — as Live Nation has announced he’ll be headlining his own show that night at Radio City Music Hall.

Tickets will cost $59-$79 (before fees), going on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 4 via Ticketmaster.com. If you have an American Express card, you can buy tickets as early as April 1. Don’t be a fool.

No other dates and locations listed yet. Not yet, anyhow.
