Where were you when comedy superstar Dave Chappelle announced that he was returning to the standup game? Chappelle kept relatively quiet for year after his infamous departure from his Comedy Central sketch series Chappelle’s Show. But he came back in a big way last year when he played 10 shows at Radio City Music Hall, followed by a brief stint at the Gramercy Theatre, all of which sold out.

Comedy Hype revealed today that Chappelle is looking to make his comeback somewhat official with a new HBO special. The footage was taped at his recent set of shows for Austin ACL Live in Texas. While the special has no title or release date, we definitely know that it’s coming. This will be his first special since 2005’s Killing Them Softly, which also aired on HBO. Fans have continued to sing Chappelle’s praises, and we’re super excited to see where life has led his comedy.

Until we get our hands on the new HBO trailer, check out Killing Me Softly below.
