This June, comedic superstars Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart will perform a limited run of shows together. The event starts on June 11 in Boston, Mass., at the Wang Theatre and the pair will do three nights there before going to Houston on the 21st at the Smart Financial Centre.

The two comedians will also tour not only Houston but Boston and El Paso for an exclusive seven-date run in June. The two icons - both of whom have fans pining for any serious return since their respective TV days - last performed together in August 2017 at Radio City Music Hall. Stewart used the time to bash white supremacists and President Trump during the show.

Tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster's "Verified Fan" platform.

The Hollywood Reporter reported then that the shows were part of a four-year production deal with HBO and it will mark the first time Stewart has done stand-up since his 1996 HBO special "Jon Stewart: Unevened".

Chappelle has released four stand-up specials via Netflix in the past year including Equanimity, The Bird Revelation and the Grammy-winning The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas. Registration begins Monday and tickets officially go on sale Friday.
