Dave Chappelle is making his most substantial return to stand-up comedy with a one-month tour for Funny or Die that will come to the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sept. 8. The comedian will headline the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which kicks off Aug. 23 in Austin, Texas. The 13-date, two-stage tour concludes Sept. 22 in Phoenix. The 39-year-old Chappelle has occasionally performed impromptu sets in clubs. But he has largely avoided comedy and public life since abruptly leaving his hit Comedy Central series, ‘‘Chappelle’s Show,’’ in 2005.
British police are investigating newspaper photos that show art collector Charles Saatchi grasping the throat of his wife, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.

London police said Monday they hadn’t received a criminal complaint about the incident, and ‘‘inquiries are in hand to establish the facts’’ in order to assess whether a formal investigation is warranted.
