NEW YORK (AP) — Dave Chappelle's hesitant, slow-motion comeback reached a big-tent crescendo when the comic performed a nearly two-hour set at Radio City Music Hall.

Chappelle, who famously abandoned his acclaimed and lucrative Comedy Central show in 2005, has largely shunned the public eye since last year resuming his stand-up career. In his wide-ranging act Wednesday, Chappelle made up for lost time, catching up to a decade of racial and societal change, skipping from Herman Cain to Donald Sterling.

The sold-out crowd howled when he said, "I'm just back out here earning enough money to disappear again."

The show was the first of nine scheduled for Chappelle at Radio City, easily the biggest platform in years for the 40-year-old comedian.
