Is Broadway ready for Dave Chappelle? The irreverent, razor-sharp comedian will make his Broadway debut when he comes to the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre for five shows from July 9 to 13.

Chappelle, whom Rolling Stone ranked as No. 9 on its list of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time in 2017, explores race, sex, drugs, politics, fame and more controversial topics in his act. In 2018 and 2019, he won back-to-back best comedy album Grammy Awards for the album releases of his four Netflix specials. He's also a two-time Emmy winner, including an outstanding variety special win last year for "Equanimity" which streamed on Netflix.
