Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords will headline Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival tour this summer, over five weekends in August and September. For the first time in several years, Chappelle will finally appease fans with a legitimate stand-up tour and will be joined by another infrequent touring act, Flight of the Conchords (FOTC), for summer’s most anticipated comedy tour.
The tour begins on Friday, Aug. 23, in Austin, Texas, and ends a month later in Phoenix with dates happening Thursday through Sunday. During the weekends of August and September, Chappelle and FOTC will be joined on two stages by Hannibal Buress, Chris D’Elia, Jim Jefferies, Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, John Mulaney, Kristen Schaal, Brody Stevens and many more, depending on your city. The tour includes stops in Dallas, Houston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Denver, Irvine and more.
“We always love to push the comedy boundaries at Funny Or Die and this festival will do just that,” said Dick Glover, CEO of Funny Or Die. “It’s the perfect blend of comedy and crazy that will for sure resonate with comedy fans looking for a one of a kind experience.”
Personally, I have been waiting years to see Dave Chappelle live and can hardly wait. If you’re excited just like me, remember tickets went on sale June 21 at livenation.
