Producers initially announced he would perform his one-man show five times. The additional shows double the length of his residency.

A press release warns: "No recording devices are allowed. All shows are cellphone, camera-free events. Audience members with cellphones will be required to place them in a locked pouch for the duration of the event. Anyone caught with a cell phone inside the venue will be immediately ejected."

Chappelle, 45, is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning Mark Twain Prize recipient. He recently headlined the Netflix specials The Art of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity and The Bird Revelations.
