When Netflix released a pair of stand-up specials by Dave Chappelle in March, it marked the first time in 12 years that a performance by the comedian was aired to the public. This summer, he's making another big splash in NYC.
Earlier this week, Chappelle announced a 10-night run of shows at Radio City Music Hall. He'll be accompanied by The Roots and will feature a new special guest each night. The run is similar in structure to his nine-night residency at Radio City in 2014, which marked his first comeback in the spotlight after he famously left his Comedy Central program, Chappelle's Show, in 2006.
Chappelle's first return to mainstream media came last November when he hosted Saturday Night Live four days after the presidential election. He's also scheduled to release one more stand-up special through Netflix: He reached a $60 million deal with the streaming service to release three specials in 2017.
