Dave Chappelle Announces Dubai Performance

Oct 24,2018

Live Nation Middle East and Flash Entertainment have confirmed that world-renowned comedian and Hollywood actor Dave Chappelle will make his triumphant return to the UAE as he brings his inimitable brand of brash comedy to Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) for a stand-up show on November 20, 2018. 

In 2017, Chappelle celebrated 30 years in comedy by releasing four hugely successful stand-up specials on Netflix – The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium, Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits, Equanimity, and The Bird Revelation – along with a companion double-feature vinyl comedy album. He has since won two television Emmy Awards, a Grammy, and Pollstar’s Comedy Tour of The Year Award.

Acclaimed for the ground-breaking, fearless sketch comedy of Chappelle’s Show, the comedian has established himself as arguably the biggest name in stand-up comedy, an icon revered by fans and peers the world over. Chappelle is also a well-respected actor and has appeared in roles in Hollywood hits such as Robin Hood: Men in Tights, The Nutty Professor, and the recently-released blockbuster remake of A Star is Born.

The gig will operate a strict ‘No Cell Phones Allowed’ policy and event organiser Live Nation urges the audience to leave their cell phones in their cars or at home. Anyone in possession of a phone, after being searched, will be required to place it in a locked pouch until after the show.


Tickets start at Dh 295 and centre front row seats are priced at Dh 1500  Tickets go on sale at 12pm, Oct 25.
