Dave Chappelle, who's generally kept a low profile since the end of "Chappelle's Show" eight years ago, is about to come back in a big way.
Chappelle is the headliner for Funny or Die's "Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival," which kicks off August 23 in Austin, Texas. The tour, which also includes Flight of the Conchords, Demetri Martin and Kristen Schaal, will run through 13 cities in five weeks, concluding in Mountain View, California.
Oh, it's not like Chappelle has been in hiding; in fact, he's touring the Southeast right now, and will be playing three shows in Nashville and five in Atlanta in the coming weeks. But in recent years the comedian's best-known public appearances have been occasional drop-ins at L.A.'s Laugh Factory and spots on "Inside the Actors Studio."
Chappelle remains most famous for his program on Comedy Central, "Chappelle's Show," a sketch-comedy hit that ran for two full seasons on the comedy channel. Chappelle was scheduled to do a third season, but left midway through its production, telling Oprah Winfrey not long after that he was burned out.
Yeah his standup routine sucks, but his shows and movies are funny.
Favorite comedian of all time..yea i know bout pryor n mooney but dave was my generation favorite hes ridocoulosly funny..too bad the fame n pressure from a so called illuminati got to him..hope he comes back harder them ever!! A great mind shouldnt be wasted
I guess he ran out of money. So much for not needing that $50 million from his comedy central show.
Dave Chappelle ran out on Comedy Central because he was "burnt out"?

I am not a racist, people. When I see a young black man driving a nice, newer car, I don't automatically think "he stole that." The first thing that comes to my mind is "that car must belong to his fat, white girlfriend."
Actually, I think your mammy is a racist!
Who cares this guy is a huge racist!!! He even refuses to take pics with white, Spanish or asian people!!!!! He's also one of the rudest people to meet in public!
BS. I am white, and I used to date him, before he was famous. That is true. Don't care if you think I am full of it. No reason to lie.
I met Dave once. I'm a white guy and he was polite and talked to me for a few minutes. So...maybe you caught him on a bad day?
You must have had any weed.Dave will warm up to anyone of any color who passes him a big fat joint.You should have come prepared.

Uh, I believe he is married to an Asian woman. And here in his home town of Yellow springs Ohio he is widely known as a friendly, open, sociable guy who likes to engage people from all walks of life in conversation, blunt or no blunt.
I'm going to distribute some white power literature in parking lot of the Overland Park Walmart on Metcalf this afternoon. Who's with me?
