According to the venue’s website, the gig will mark Chappelle’s first time performing his own show at Radio City, and first time in over 10 years that he has taken the stage in the Big Apple for a headlining gig.

Since reappearing on the Comedy circuit last summer at Montreal’s “Just For Laughs” festival where he broke the event’s 31-year record of most tickets sold, the 40-year-old has also managed to embark on his 2014 sold out Australian international tour.

Tickets for Dave Chappelle’s Radio City Music Hall show go on sale this Friday April 4.
