Comedian Dave Chapelle Performing In Dubai This November

Comedy legend and actor Dave Chapelle is set to bring the laughs to Dubai on Tuesday, 20th November at Dubai’s World Trade Center.

30 years of laughter and comedy

Been on the comedy scene for nearly three decades, Dave Chapelle began with stand-up comedy in clubs and bars in the early ‘90s until he got a breakthrough in Hollywood, starring in the 1993 film ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights.’ The following year, Chapelle became the youngest comedian to be featured on the stand-up comedy show ‘Comic Relief VI’, alongside the likes of Robin Williams and Billy Crystal. He rose to prominence with his sketch comedy show, ‘Chapelle’s Show.’ The 45-year-old has also starred in hit films and TV shows like ‘You’ve Got Mail,’ ‘Def Comedy Jam’ and his latest film ‘A Star Is Born.’

Chapelle one of the most celebrated comedians on the scene

Regarded as a “comic genius of America’ by Esquire, “the best” by Billboard and ranked 9th on Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Stand Up Comics of All Time,” Dave Chapelle is arguably one of the best comedians on the scene. The last two years have been a special one for the comedian, winning an Emmy award in 2017 for his appearance on Saturday Night Live, as well as a Grammy award this year, for his Netflix specials ‘The Age of Spin & Deep in the Heart of Texas’ winning the ‘Best Comedy Album.’

Sold out gig on Dubai Debut

Chapelle marked his Dubai debut at the Dubai Comedy Festival in 2015, alongside South African comedian Trevor Noah and Middle East favourites Ali Al Sayed and Bader Saleh. His gig was a sold-out show, with 4,500+ people laughing their hearts out to Chapelle’s act at a purpose-built venue in Skydive Dubai. Event goers are in for an experience full of knee-slapping comedy!
