Dave Chappelle? On a nationwide tour? The powers that be had me at “hello.”
Comedy lovers experienced a fangasm early Monday with the news Dave would be headlining Funny Or Die’s The Oddball & Curiosity tour this summer gracing stages from California to Massachusetts and everywhere in between.
The Oddball tour will play 13 dates this fall, and Chappelle is slated to co-headline the tour with comedy/musical act Flight of the Conchords. Two stages are scheduled to take place at the festival, and other performers currently listed are Al Madrigal, Brody Stevens, Chris D’Elia, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Jim Jefferies, John Mulaney, and Kristen Schaal.
The festival will also feature “two stages, street performers, vendors, psychics, freaks, tasty treats and more.”
After checking the tour schedule, mark calendars for June 21. That’s when tickets go on sale. And, of course, Washington, D.C. isn’t on the list.
To hell with those “powers that be.”
