It’s been seven years since comedian Dave Chappelle was in the spotlight of his self-titled television program, “Chappelle Show.”

Although Chappelle has continued to make small cameos and special appearances through the years, dedicated fans have only been able to search YouTube videos and watch reruns of the Comedy Central show in order to hear all of Chappelle’s comedic content. That is, until now.

The comedian has recently been on tour in the South and has just announced that he will be headlining for Funny or Die’s “Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival.”

The festival, touring from late August to mid September, will feature Flight of the Conchords, Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal, John Mulaney and include many others.

Ranging from venues all over the United States, the festival includes local shows such as the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey on Sept. 6, and the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey on Sept. 7.

Tickets go on sale this Friday. Pricing has not been announced.
