The two-time Emmy and Grammy Award-winner is taking his show to Broadway.
Multiple outlets confirm that Dave Chappelle is heading to the stage — Dave Chapelle Live on Broadway will show at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre for five shows from July 9 through July 13.
The 5-show limited residency was announced Wednesday by producers Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG. Tickets for the shows are scheduled to go on sale June 14 and are expected to sell out immediately as the comic’s stand-up shows also typically sell out quickly.
Chappelle joins others who have used the Lunt-Fontanne as the site of their week-long residencies. Upcoming stints include Mel Brooks (June 17-18), singer-songwriter Regina Spektor (June 20-26), illusionist Criss Angel (July 2-7), Beatles tribute by Rain (July 16-21), and Barry Manilow (July 26-Aug. 17).
The comedian is also the recipient of this year’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
