Following the previous announcements of those set to appear on stage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre this summer as part of the 2019 In Residence on Broadway series, it has now been announced that Dave Chappelle will make his Broadway debut next month. Chappelle will play the Broadway venue for five performances from July 9 to July 13, where he will perform his unique style of comedy.
Dave Chappelle - Live on Broadway
Dave Chappelle, whose award-winning comedy is trademarked by sharp wit and irreverent social commentary, explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics, and fame in his Broadway debut.
In 2017, he released four highly anticipated specials on Netflix: “The Art of Spin,” “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” “Equanimity,” and “The Bird Revelations.” All four specials were delivered on vinyl as double-feature albums and received Grammy Awards for "Best Comedy Album" in 2018 and 2019, also winning an Emmy Award for “Equanimity.”
