Dave Chappelle bringing another residency in his hometown of Washington D.C.

The same city as his first HBO special, "Killin' Them Softly."

Dave Chappelle had what will likely go down as one of the most memorable show runs ever this past August, with his star-studded residency at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. But the legendary comedian isn't resting on his laurels, as another residency was just announced this week.

Okayplayer reports that Chappelle will begin another residency next week, this one at the Warner Theatre in his hometown of Washington D.C., where he shot his first HBO special Killin' Them Softly. It begins on Tuesday, Sept. 19 and will include 17 shows through 11 nights. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

The residency continues an incredible comeback year for Chappelle, one of the most respected comedians of his generation. He surprised the entertainment world when he suddenly left his heralded Chappelle's Show shortly after signing a whopping $50 million to continue the show. After slowing down his public output for nearly a decade, Chappelle returned in 2016 with two new Netflix specials and the aforementioned Radio City Music Hall residency, which featured special guests like Kendrick Lamar, Chris Rock, The Roots, Erykah Badu, and more.
