On June 12, comedian Dave Chappelle released 8:46, a stand-up special filmed just days before in his hometown of Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Since filming the special, Chappelle began hosting intimate, socially distanced comedy shows at that same location, Wirrig Pavilion, a private outdoor event space amid corn fields and Christmas tree farms in the idyllic village of Yellow Springs — all with the approval of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
The celebrity-packed shows were a huge hit throughout the summer into early fall, before Chappelle canceled the remaining shows due to COVID-19.
But as coronavirus cases decline, vaccines increase and restrictions begin to loosen, Dave Chappelle & Friends are returning to the rural stage. Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster at noon, May 17 for four late-May shows from May 26 to May 29.
Tickets will likely go fast, so make sure you're prepared to snag yours once noon hits.
