Two of comedy's biggest acts take the stage in the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, when Dave Chappelle and New Zealands's Flight of the Conchords visit Boston. Chappelle proved to be one of the most talented and popular performers during his three seasons of "Chappelle's Show," which he abruptly abandoned in 2006. Since then, Chappelle has been fairly reclusive, but his impromptu appearance at New York's Comedy Cellar (Where Louis C.K.performs in "Louie") with Chris Rock has already become the stuff of urban myth.
The Flight of the Conchords singing duo of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement had a similar brief, but brilliant tenure on two seasons of HBO's "Flight of the Conchords" which ended in 2009. Since then, McKenzie has dedicated his songwriting talents to "The Muppets" and Clement has been seen in "Rio," "Despicable Me," and "Men in Black 3."
The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival takes place on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.at the Comcast Center, Mansfield.
