Dave Chapelle has quietly scheduled a cross-country tour that will keep him on the road for most of August.
The comedian will wrap his sold-out 15-show residency at San Francisco’s Punch Line August 9, then hightail it to Norfolk, Va., two days later to launch a road trip that will take him through a dozen cities.
He’ll take almost no days off during the next couple of weeks, hitting Pittsburgh, Detroit, Boston and more.
Two shows are booked for Toronto’s Massey Hall, and he’ll wrap the run with another pair of gigs at the Borgata Hotel / Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., August 25-26.
Chappelle toured briefly in February with Mos Def and Erykah Badu opening, and hosted a series of sold-out gigs in Florida this June.
The hit Comedy Central series “Chappelle’s Show” has been on indefinite hiatus since Chappelle left abruptly in April 2005. In an appearance on the Bravo channel’s “Inside The Actors Studio” earlier this year, the comedian said he’s been enjoying getting back to live performance.
“When I’m on stage, I get real happy there,” Chappelle told host James Lipton. “Maybe that’s the only time in my adult life I feel like myself.”
