Comedy fans get a double dose of funny when Dave Chapelle and Chris Tucker team up for four shows at the Saenger Theater in February.

Chapelle and Tucker perform Wednesday, Feb. 15; Thursday, Feb. 16, Friday, Feb. 17 and Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Saenger Theater. The venue announced a fourth show added to the comedians’ February appearance due to “overwhelming demand,” according to a press release. The release also says the fourth show on Saturday, Feb. 18 will be the final show added to the pair’s scheduled appearance.

Fans can grab tickets starting Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, Ticketmaster.com and Livenation.com. Ticket prices range from $59.75 to $99.75, plus applicable service charges and fees. Originally set to go on sale Dec. 14, the sale was pushed back because of scheduling conflicts, according to a release.

Chappelle rose to fame following a string of box office hits, including his first lead in “Half Baked,” which he also co-wrote. The comedian’s sketch comedy show, “Chappelle’s Show” made him a household name. Chappelle’s most recent push into the spotlight came with his “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig back in November.

Tucker’s success as a comedy star rose from roles in the “Rush Hour” film franchise, “Friday,” “Silver Linings Playbook” and “The Fifth Element.” The comedian was also a fan favorite on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam during the 1990s.
