NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- Dave Chappelle will make his Broadway debut this summer at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre where he will perform five shows from July 9 through July 13.

The show's producers issued an unusually blunt warning about anyone trying to film the performance on their phones saying "All phones will be put in a locked pouch during the show and anyone smuggling one in will be ejected."

The theater has also allowed music acts like Morrissey, Yanni and Regina Spektor make their Broadway debuts.

Chappelle received Grammy Awards for best comedy album in 2018 and 2019 and won his second Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special with "Equanimity'' in 2018.
