Nearly a decade after hosting one of the most well known block parties in history, Dave Chappelle is set to “wow” audiences again by co-headlining his first ever stand-up at Radio City Music Hall in June. The initial block party took place September 18, 2004 in Brooklyn, New York and featured The Roots, BlackStar, The Fugees, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and many other musical legends. Now, in a series of three concerts, Chappelle will be bringing the block party to Radio City Music Hall with performances by The Roots, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier, Janelle Monae, and Erykah Badu.

This announcement comes on the heels of Chappelle’s five consecutive nights of stand-up performances at Radio City from June 18-22 being sold out. If ticket sales for seeing Chappelle perform minus the musical acts and the success of the 2005 documentary based on the Brooklyn block party are any indication of the appeal of the comedy and music combination, Chappelle should have no problem selling out the newly announced collaborative performances. Block Party grossed $12.1 million at the box office, earning $6 million in its opening weekend.

Chappelle is well known for his sketch comedy the Chappelle Show, and he has been referred to as “the comic genius of America.” He is ranked No. 43 in the 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time by Comedy Central. His most recent performances include him touring in the United States as part of the 2013 Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival. Tickets for the newly announced Radio City Music Hall performances will go on sale June 2nd. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, and American Express Card Members will have access to pre-sale tickets from May 29th through June 1st.
