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.
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 for the late-May performances sold out quickly. Tickets for the next sessions of shows go on sale via Ticketmaster at 10 a.m., May 26 for four early-June shows from June 2 to June 5.
