Start the block party planning immediately.

Dave Chappelle is coming to Chattanooga.

Chattanooga OnStage announced this morning that the comedian will be at the Tivoli Theatre Wednesday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m.


Working with event promotion company Live Nation, Chappelle is currently putting together a modest tour, including dates beginning in the middle of the month.

The comedian made noise about a possible comeback in February when he appeared at the Comedy Cellar in New York City-performing new and quality material, cutting up with Chris Rock and other comedy buddies, and even teasing the audience with mentions of touring with Rock later in the year.

Chappelle, as infamous as he is famous, has been living in rural Ohio, enjoying the secluded country life after abandoning his Comedy Central program “The Chappelle Show.”

Some of the writer and actor’s choice work? Clayton Bigsby, his Rick James impression, “The Racial Draft” and other musings on what white people eat.

Tickets for the Chattanooga show are priced at $52 and are on sale now.
