Dane Baptiste announces a brand new tour, The Chocolate Chip, the highly anticipated 4th show from one of the nation’s most exciting stand up stars. The tour includes a two week run at London’s Soho Theatre from March 2nd.
Dane is now a Grown Ass Black Man. Too old to be concerned with chicken or trainers. Too young to be considered a peer of Trevor McDonald.
This show will see the acerbic comedian tackle race in his typically unfiltered, original and provocative manner. “Normally if you make any comments about racial inequality or economic inequality people will say you have a chip on your shoulder,” Dane Baptiste says. “So I’m embracing that chip and calling it Chocolate Chip.”
