Dave Chappelle Tests Positive For COVID-19, Cancels Upcoming Show
Stand up comedian Dave Chappelle has tested positive for COVID-19, a rep for the comedian confirmed to Variety on Thursday.
Chappelle performed the first of a planned five shows on Wednesday night at the Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater. However, he was to perform on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The remaining shows will not hold, and a statement from Chappelle’s rep says “ticket holders should contact their point of sale for refunds.”
“Chappelle has safely conducted socially distanced shows in Ohio since June 2020 and he moved those shows to Austin during the winter,” the statement reads. “Chappelle implemented COVID-19 protocols which included rapid testing for the audience and daily testing for himself and his team. His diligent testing enabled him to immediately respond by quarantining, thus mitigating the spread of the virus.”
