Comedy fans and Hip-Hop lovers unite for a special night in New York City, as Dave Chappelle announced that he was teaming up with Childish Gambino for an exclusive event.
According to published reports on Monday (Jun 12th), Gambino and Chappelle will take to the stage at the famous Radio City Music Hall. Despite Gambino — real name: Donald Glover — also being a stand-up comedian, the quadruple threat will be lending his musical talents to the show as he prepares for the retirement of his stage name.
The joint show follows the release of two out of three of Chappelle’s highly successful Netflix specials, The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas, as well as Gambino’s remarkable year in both music and television after winning a Golden Globe (‘Best Actor in a TV Comedy’) for his FX hit Atlanta, along with the release of his critically-acclaimed album Awaken, My Love!.
Gambino isn’t the only one joining Chappelle at the legendary venue: Erykah Badu, The Roots, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, Ali Wong, and more are set to hit the stage during his residency at Radio City. Ten shows have been added and they will go on sale Friday (Jun 16th) at 10 AM via Ticketmaster.
The Chappelle/Gambino event is scheduled to take place on August 19. See the full lineup below:
