Stand-up comedian and actor Dave Chappelle is coming to the Tacoma Dome for an Aug. 2 show. He’ll be appearing with fellow comic Joe Rogan.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Chappelle is beloved by his fans and critics for his sharp wit and willingness to explore taboo topics.

He wrote and starred in “Chappelle’s Show” on Comedy Central before walking away from millions of dollars at the height of its popularity in the mid-2000s.

Chappelle, who started stand-up at age 14, has released several comedy specials on Netflix recently. He won a Grammy for them in 2018.

In 2017, he won an Emmy for a guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” on NBC.

The prolific stage performer is set to receive the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in a ceremony at the Kennedy Center October 27.

The show at the Tacoma Dome has a strict no cell policy.

Craig Sailor has worked for The News Tribune for 20 years as a reporter, editor and photographer. He previously worked at The Olympian and at other newspapers in Nevada and California.
