It's finally happened! The comical genius of Dave Chappelle is back in action! And not a moment too soon. We were all confused at his departure from his hit Comedy Central T.V. show the Chappelle Show, and some even wondered if he would ever return to the comedy scene. But all that is now in the past with the announcement that he will be headlining the first ever FunnyOrDie Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival along side Flight of the Concords and fellow comedians Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, John Mulaney, and Kristen Schaal.

This will be Chappelle's first major performance since his falling out with Comedy Central nearly eight years ago. Since that time he has managed to lay low and only do 'surprise' gigs in which he would just show up at a comedy club and perform. Until the FunnyordDie tour kicks off August 23 (in Austin, Texas!), Chappelle will be working comedy clubs around the Carolinas, Georgia and Tennessee. Check out his schedule in detail HERE.
