Dave Chappelle to headline Funny or Die comedy tour

June 18, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
Comedian Dave Chappelle is set to headline a monthlong stand-up comedy tour for Funny or Die.

The Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival kicks off Aug. 23 in Austin, Texas. Flight of the Conchords, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal and Al Madrigal. The 13-date, two-stage tour concludes Sept. 22 in Phoenix.

The event marks Chappelle's most substantial return to the comedy stage. He has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, "Chappelle's Show," in 2005.

The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in comedy clubs.
