Dave Chappelle Test Positive for Coronavirus; Cancels All Upcoming Shows

Just before Dave Chappelle’s Thursday comedy show, he tested positive for the coronavirus. Which forced him to  cancel all upcoming appearances, a spokeswoman  said.

His rep Carla Sims said in a statement that Chappelle was expected to perform from Thursday through Sunday at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, Texas.

Unfortunately, those shows have now been canceled and Chappelle is quarantining. The comedian is asymptomatic.

Sims said since  June 2020,  Chappelle has been performing socially-distanced shows in Ohio and he moved his shows to Austin during the winter. Rapid testing for the audience and daily tests for Chappelle and his team were implemented.

Comedian Joe Rogan was scheduled to perform at the shows on Friday and Saturday. He apologized on Instagram to his followers for the canceled shows, saying they’d be rescheduled.
