Dave Chappelle is making a grand return this summer alongside Flight of the Conchords for the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity touring festival. Presented by Funny or Die and Live Nation, the traveling show will launch in Austin, Texas on August 23 and wrap up in Phoenix, Arizona on September 22, hitting 13 cities in total. As the promo clip above advertises, the fest will feature not one “butt” two stages, plus street performers, freaks, psychics, vendors, and a bunch of comedians.
Among those other billed performers are Demetri Martin and Al Madrigal (The Daily Show), Eric Andre’s right hand Hannibal Buress (also Chance the Rapper’s pal), Kristen Schaal of 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney (responsible for Stefon), Whitney‘s Chris D’Elia, Brody Steven, and Jim Jefferies. More have yet to be announced. Chappelle has been famously reclusive since Chappelle’s Show went off the air. He’s mostly performed impromptu, conversational shows since.
