Is having a Broadway show or residency becoming the new status symbol? It seems like a whole lot of musicians and comedians have been announcing they're taking their talents to Broadway in recent years, including Bruce Springsteen, David Byrne, Dolly, Morrissey... and you can now add Dave Chappelle to the marquee.

Chappelle will make his Broadway debut for five shows at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre this July, called Dave Chappelle Live on Broadway. The performances will take place from Tuesday, July 9th, through Saturday, July 13th. Fans can sign up for the Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale on Tuesday June 18th; tickets to the general public will go on sale Friday, June 21st, at 10 a.m.

As has been the norm for Chappelle shows in recent years (as well as other stand-ups), audience members with cellphones "will be required to place them in a locked pouch for the duration of the event. Anyone caught with a cell phone inside the venue will be immediately ejected."

Chappelle last released four standup specials on Netflix in 2017 (The Art of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity and The Bird Revelations). In recent years, he's toured with Jon Stewart, performed at Radio City Music Hall, and hosted SNL.

In an interview with the Times a few years ago, Chappelle talked about his reinvigorated love for performing stand-up: "I could quit my show, and that’s one kind of difficulty. But quitting doing stand-up would be another. I’m sure everybody gets to a point where they run out of [stuff] to say, and they’ve got to take a knee and recharge and be introspective and live their life. But it’s hard to not ever come back to. Guys might walk away from it and close the door, but they don’t lock it behind. Eddie Murphy always entertains the possibility of doing it again. Even though he doesn’t do it, I’m sure he thinks about it all the time. It’s just one of those things where you’ll do it for 10 years, and then you’ll think about it for the next 30."
