For years now there’s been speculation as to whether Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock would team up for a live stand-up comedy tour. Alas, it doesn’t look like it’s happening anytime soon. However, Chappelle is going on tour this summer—and not by himself. He, along with the to-be reunited Flight of the Conchords will headline 13 cities between Aug. 23 and Sept. 22 for the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival.

Comedians Al Madrigal, Chris D’Elia, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Jim Jefferies, John Mulaney and Kristen Schaal are also set to peform. The Funny Or Die-produced traveling festival will also feature a second stage hosted by Brody Stevens and will feature local talent in each city. Funny Or Die promises a “full festival experience featuring a second comedy state, street performers, vendors, psychics, freaks, tasty treats, booze and more.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 21. The tour kicks off on Aug. 23 in Austin and travels to Houston, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Tinley Park, Il, Detroit, Camden, NJ, Holmdel, NJ, Mansfield, MA, Denver, Irvine, CA, Mountain View, CA and Phoenix.
