Talent agent Jackie Knobbe said Thursday the comedian will bring his trademark frustration and high blood pressure style to the Richard Rodgers Theatre from Oct. 9-14. The show, currently on tour, is called "Running on Empty." Tickets go on sale Aug. 6.

"Why Broadway?" he asks in a statement. "It's close to my apartment, just blocks away and frankly I'm too tired to go anywhere else. These guys are exhausting me. Democrats. Republicans. The Tea Party. Just shut up. Enough is enough."

Black has been on Broadway before: His 2004 show "Black on Broadway" made it to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre and also was broadcast on HBO.

His other standup highlights include "Red, White and Screwed" as well as regular appearances on "The Daily Show."

He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy-Award winning "The Carnegie Hall Performance." He's also a playwright: His play "One Slight Hitch," written in 1983, was updated and appeared this summer in Seattle.
