Following sold out shows at the Royal Albert Hall last year with Jon Stewart, Dave Chappelle returns to the UK this June to perform at London’s Adelphi Theatre and Hackney Empire.
Chappelle’s clever, in-your-face brand of humour has made him one of the most respected entertainers of his generation. In March 2017, Chappelle returned to television via streaming giant Netflix with two highly-anticipated specials, The Art of Spin, and Deep in the Heart of Texas, filmed in Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX. The critically-acclaimed specials satisfied his fans and introduced a new legion of followers to his sidesplitting, thought-provoking style of political and social commentary.
In 2005, Chappelle walked away from his groundbreaking sketch comedy show, Chappelle’s Showon Comedy Central. During the 8 years that followed, he performed pop-up stand-up dates, made occasional television appearances, and toured extensively throughout the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, and Australia. From intimate comedy clubs to theatres and arenas, Chappelle’s live performances often sold out within minutes of being announced.
Comedy Central ranks Chappelle as Number 43 of the “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Esquire Magazine has called him “the comic genius of America,” and he was featured on the cover of GQ Magazine’s Man of the Year issue in 2015. In April 2017, he graced the cover of The New York Times’ T-Magazine.
