NJ.com Reports: Dave Chappelle to visit N.J. in 13-date comedy tour

06/18/2013 - 8:19am

Dave Chappelle is making his most substantial return to stand-up comedy with a one-month tour for the web site, Funny or Die.

The comedian will headline Funny or Die's Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, which kicks off Aug. 23 in Austin, Texas. The 13-date, two-stage tour concludes Sept. 22 in Phoenix.

There will be two Jersey dates: Sept. 6 at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, and Sept. 7 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.

The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in comedy clubs. But he has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, "Chappelle's Show," in 2005.

Other tour participants include Flight of the Conchords, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal, Al Madrigal, Brody Steven, Chris D'Elia, Demetri Martin, Jim Jefferies and John Mulaney, though the support lineup will vary from city to city.

Tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.; call (800) 745-3000 or visit ticketmaster.com.
