Dave Chappelle Tests Positive For COVID-19, Cancels Shows

The award-winning comedian was scheduled to hold performances nightly through Sunday at Stubb’s.

Dave Chappelle has cancelled his remaining shows in Austin this week after testing positive for the novel coronavirus shortly before his scheduled Thursday performance.

Chappelle first surprised Austin in 2020 back in November with a trio of shows on the heels of his SNL performance. After tickets sold out nearly instantly, the comic legend later announced a residency in Austin in mid December. Since then, Chappelle has held numerous comedy shows at Stubb’s Waller Creek Ampitheater, some of which included his former opener Joe Rogan.

His latest string of shows, which began this past Wednesday, have been canceled following the comedian testing positive for the virus.

Rogan wrote a post on his Instagram account, apologizing for the cancellation, assuring ticket buyers that the shows would be rescheduled.

“Sorry my friends, the Friday and Saturday shows at @stubbsaustin have been cancelled. We’ll reschedule them as soon as we can. Much love to you all.”

Refunds will also be available through ticket-buyer services.

All past performances required ticket buyers to submit to a rapid COVID test, only allowing entry to those who tested negative.
