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.
02 June 2019 London, Adelphi Theatre

Grammy-winning rapper Lil Jon is doing some good in a time when the world needs it most.
Pencils of Promise, the organisation which helps to build schools and increase educational opportunity in developing countries, has confirmed that Lil Jon opened his second school in the village of Mafi Atitekpo in Ghana. The new school named, Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School, broke ground in December 2017 and was officially inaugurated in July 2018, and has since been operating since with 313 children enrolled.
Thanks to Lil Jon’s generous donation of $70,000, Pencils of Promise was able to build schools with safe conditions. Most of these schools face overcrowding, forcing some students to learn under a tree outside of the school. Witnessing these learning conditions firsthand during his first trip to Ghana is what motivated Lil Jon to help.
The first school Lil Jon helped to fund in October 2017 was built in honor of late mother, Carrie M.Smith, which currently enrolls nearly 250 students. Overall, PoP is impacting over 35,000 students in Ghana.
“Last year [October of 2017] I went with my family to open up my first Pencils of Promise school in Ghana, and now to have over 300 kids already enrolled in my second school there is incredible! It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures,” said Lil Jon.
PoP has also teamed up with stars such as Justin Bieber and Olivia Culpo in the past to support these difficult educational systems.
