Dave Chappelle is taking his act to Broadway. 

The two-time Emmy and Grammy Award-winner will be making his Broadway debut this July with a limited 5-show residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. 

Producers Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG announced Wednesday that Dave Chapelle Live on Broadway will show from July 9 through July 13.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale June 14 and are expected to sell out immediately given that the comic’s stand-up shows typically sell like hotcakes. 

Upcoming week-long residencies at the Lunt-Fontanne include Mel Brooks (June 17-18), singer-songwriter Regina Spektor (June 20-26), illusionist Criss Angel (July 2-7), Beatles tribute by Rain (July 16-21), and Barry Manilow (July 26-Aug. 17).

Chappelle is also set to receive this year’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The ceremony will take place at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, DC on October 27.
