Dave Chappelle is returning to Austin for a 10-show residency at Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater. The legendary comedian returns to Austin December 8-20, less than one month after surprising the Capital City with three performances, also as Stubb's.

Joining Chappelle for five of the dates is Austin's newest celebrity resident, Joe Rogan. The comedian, podcaster, and former Fear Factor host (remember that show?) will join Chappelle during the December 8, 9, 11, 15, and 16 performances. The rest of the dates promise "friends," but no other names have been confirmed, according to the website.

Tickets to all performances, presented by C3, go on sale Friday, December 4, at noon. Like all Chappelle shows, expect tickets to sell out fast. (When he surprised Austin with a performance at the Paramount in October 2019, tickets sold out in six minutes.)

To maintain social distancing, Stubb's is implementing a table policy, so the $250 tickets must be sold in increments in four, six, or eight. Attendees will be required to take a rapid test before entry. If COVID-19 is detected by the rapid test, that individual and all members of the same household will not be allowed to enter and will be given a refund, according to C3's website. 

All members of the table must be present to enter the show, and like all Chappelle performances, absolutely no cellphones are allowed. If you're caught with one during the performance, you will be immediately ejected from the venue.
