Dave Chappelle & Jon Stewart Announce Limited Comedy Tour, Starting In Boston

16 May 2018

Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart are going on tour, together, and they're coming to Boston. The duo will hit three cities, taking over Boston, Houston, and El Paso from June 11 to June 24.

Chappelle has released four stand-up specials via Netflix in the previous year including Equanimity, The Bird Revelation and the Grammy-winning The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas.

The event will find the two touching on some of today's hottest topics while following up a series of shows from Chappelle, including a set at New York City's Radio City Music Hall past year.

Tickets, which start at $79.95, go on sale on Friday, but will only be available to people who register via Ticketmaster Verified Fan by Wednesday at 10 p.m., which is an attempt to keep tickets away from scalpers and online resellers. HBO also announced in 2017 that Jon Stewart would perform two stand up specials for the platform but those have yet to materialize. Dates for the new specials have not been announced, but they will mark Stewart's first return to stand-up in 20 years.

"We've all missed his uniquely thoughtful brand of humor", HBO's programming president Casey Bloys said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Plus, I can finally use up the last of the Saddam Hussein jokes left over from my first special".
