Chappelle to headline new comedy tour
NEW YORK — Dave Chappelle is making his most substantial return to stand-up comedy with a one-month tour for Funny Or Die.
The comedian will head- line the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, which kicks off Aug. 23 in Austin, Texas. The 13-date, two-stage tour concludes Sept. 22 in Phoenix.
The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in comedy clubs.
But he has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, “Chappelle’s Show,” in 2005.
Also on the bill are Flight of the Conchords, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal and Al Madrigal.

A video posted by TMZ.com shows Bieber getting into a Ferrari.
He’s surrounded by paparazzi and as the car drives off, one falls to the ground and grips his knee.
A request for comment from Bieber’s publicist, Melissa Victor, was not immediately returned.
