According to TMZ, comedic legend Dave Chappelle has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The 47-year-old comedian is now quarantining after finding out that he tested positive for the virus.

As per reports, Chappelle had performed in the first of five shows scheduled in Austin on Wednesday.

Though many comedians have hit pause of their scheduled standup tours, Dave has continued to bring comedy to the masses, starting with his native OH last June. Rapid testing for the audience and daily tests for Chappelle and his team were implemented.

HBO Max later followed Netflix's lead and dropped "Chappelle's Show" at the end of December.

'We had a conversation with Dave, ' Bloys revealed.

Chappelle is among the most prominent comedians attempting to navigate stand-up during the pandemic.

In November, Chappelle released 18 minutes of standup called "Unforgiven" in which he asked fans to stop watching Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show" on HBO Max.
