Just last month superstar comedian Dave Chappelle quietly announced a short fall tour that will kick off on September 14 at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City, Utah. The standup performer will be touring over the next month in theaters at select cities. First Chappelle will be performing two shows back-to-back at the Capitol Theater on Monday night, then he will travel to Colorado Springs to perform a stand up show at the Pikes Peak Center before arriving in Morrison, Colorado. On the 17th, Chappelle will play a show at the Red Rocks Amphitheater.  Chappelle will be performing 37 comedy shows from September through October in 17 different cities across the US with his last show taking place in Hershey, Pennsylvania at the Hershey Theater on October 8.

Fans looking to catch the superstar comedian live can expect some affordable Dave Chappelle tickets on the secondary market.  Overall, Dave Chappelle’s fall tour in the US has an average price of $131.67 on the resale market.  One of his most affordable shows on his tour include this Thursday’s appearance at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado as tickets for this event are going for an average price of $114.58 on the secondary market, with the cheapest ticket priced at $74. That price is 13% below the overall average for Dave Chappelle tickets for his fall tour.

Chappelle is returning to perform at the Red Rock Amphitheater for the second straight year, last performing at the venue last August, which was a sellout show as another sellout is expected on the 17th.

Since first achieving stardom for his numerous roles in films such as “Nutty Professor,” “Blue Streak,” and “Half Baked,” he’s become one of the funniest stand up comics of all time, even landing his own his television show on Comedy Central.

However, fame and success became too much for Chappelle to handle as he abruptly left Comedy Central in the middle of production for the third season of Chappelle’s Show in 2005.  He was reported of taking a trip to South Africa where he disappeared from the public eye for some time. Finally, in 2013 Chappelle famously returned to stand-up and is now back stronger than ever having great success with constant sold out shows in amphitheaters in the United States.

For his upcoming fall tour, Chappelle will also be performing his longest run in New York City that includes six shows at the Gramercy Theater over the course of three nights from September 28 through the September 30.

Earlier this week on Forbes, we discussed Dave Chappelle's upcoming show at Radio City Music Hall and how prices for Dave Chappelle tickets could be some of the most expensive comedy tickets we've seen since we started tracking data. Here is a little of the article:

For the first time in ten years, comedian Dave Chappelle will make a public appearance in New York City. Chappelle hasn’t performed in NYC since the comedian filmed the documentary ‘Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” in Brooklyn during 2004, but he will return for a headlining performance at Radio City Music Hall on June 19.

Since leaving Comedy Central’s ‘Chappelle’s Show’ in 2005, Chappelle had largely stayed out of the public eye until co-headlining the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival with Flight of the Concords last fall. As you would expect, the festival was very popular over the 14 dates and has a $138 average ticket price on the secondary market. It also received welcome reviews from both fans and critics. Continuing his return to stand-up, Chappelle embarked on a headlining tour through Australia in February. The original plan of the tour was to play six dates in the country’s major cities — Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney — before five more shows were added due to overwhelming demand for Dave Chappelle tickets. All six of the original shows sold out within minutes of going on sale on the primary market and an additional show time was added to each date on the tour. It’s likely similar demand would be seen for domestic Chappelle performances, especially for a single show at Radio City.
