Ticket alert: Dave Chappelle to begin 2017 tour in Coral Springs

UPDATE: Tickets for both Dave Chappelle appearances on Feb. 10 have sold out, according to the Coral Springs Center for the Arts box office.

Still riding the comeback train, comedian and provocateur Dave Chappelle will perform back-to-back standup sets at 7 and 10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.

Tickets, which will cost $71.20 plus tax, will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 13, via CoralSpringsCenterfortheArts.com and by calling the center's box office at 954-344-5990.

The comedy renegade's stop, according to the Coral Springs Center, kicks off his 2017 North American tour, with other dates to be announced via LiveNation.com. The announcement comes after a well-received gig hosting "Saturday Night Live" in November, and news that Chappelle inked a new Netflix deal to deliver three standup comedy specials in 2017. Chappelle will reportedly receive $20 million per special.

Chappelle has remained a pop-culture curiosity since returning from a lengthy hiatus from comedy in 2005, following an abrupt departure from his acclaimed Comedy Central sketch-comedy series "Chappelle's Show." He returned to the stage in 2013, and staged a memorable four-night stand at the Fillmore Miami Beach in December 2013.

The Coral Springs Center for the Arts is located at 2855 Coral Springs Drive.
