Washington [US], March 25 (ANI): American stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle is heading to Connecticut for a set of shows and the comedian is requiring audience members to get rapid COVID-19 tests before entry.
According to Fox News, the 47-year-old stand-up comedian is performing at Foxwoods' Grand Theater in Connecticut on June 25 and 26.
The venue said any individual who tests positive or is accompanied by someone who tests positive will not be allowed in but can get a full refund.
Fully vaccinated guests also have to undergo testing. Everyone also needs to wear a mask and the seats will be socially distanced.

And per Chappelle's usual restrictions, there will be no cameras, phones, or recording devices allowed.
In January, the Emmy-winner revealed the tested positive for coronavirus although his representative Carla Sims, the entertainer was asymptomatic.
As reported by Fox News, Chappelle cancelled his remaining shows in Austin, Texas. Chappelle had been performing socially distanced shows in Ohio since June, and moved his shows to Austin during the winter, Sims said.
In February, 'Chappelle's Show' returned to Netflix after originally being taken down because of Chappelle's beef with Comedy Central over licensing.
"I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much," he said in a clip he posted on Instagram. (ANI)
