Dave Chap­pelle’s live shows have been scrapped due to pos­si­ble COVID-19 ex­po­sure among its crew. The co­me­dian has been per­form­ing dur­ing the pan­demic with his In­ti­mate So­cially Dis­tanced Af­fair shows in Yel­low Springs, Ohio. “Due to pos­si­ble ex­po­sure to COVID-19 within our in­ner cir­cle, and out of an abun­dance of cau­tion, we have elected to can­cel the re­main­ing … shows,” a rep told the New York Post. Phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing, face masks, hand san­i­tizer, tem­per­a­ture checks and ac­cess to daily COVID-19 tests were all in ef­fect, and the rep added that there are no re­ported cases among pa­trons or crew. Many other co­me­di­ans had per­formed at the shows — in­clud­ing Chris Rock, David Let­ter­man, Jon Ste­wart, Tif­fany Had­dish, Michael Che, Sarah Sil­ver­man and Louis CK — how­ever the ex­po­sure is not thought to have af­fected them. The fi­nal show was due to take place on Sunday.
