Dave Chappelle took several years out of the spotlight after leaving Comedy Central and Chappelle's Show behind, but he has returned in a big way in 2017. He had two Netflix specials earlier this year, and this August he has multiple dates at Radio City Music Hall.

Chappelle has a ten-date residency at the historic New York City venue, starting on August 1 and concluding on August 24. Four of the nights will be co-billed with The Roots, while other nights will include Chris Rock, Erykah Badu, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, comedian Ali Wong, and other to-be-announced guests.

The shows continue Chappelle's tradition of teaming with great musicians for his work. Chappelle's Show featured the likes of Kanye West, Killer Mike, Mos Def and Slum Village, artists who were still establishing themselves at the time of the show. He also showcased artists at Chappelle's Block Party and his latest event during NBA All-Star Weekend.
