Dave Chappelle

This event has been and gone.

Following a sold-out run at the iconic Royal Albert Hall last year with comedic genius Jon Stewart, the Mark Twain award-winning comedian Dave Chappelle makes his triumphant return to the UK this June to perform at London’s Adelphi Theatre and Hackney Empire.

The internationally recognised stand-up comedian and actor’s trademark wit and sharp, irreverent social commentary explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics, and fame. Arguably the most-touring comic on the circuit, Chappelle has performed more than 1,600 concerts worldwide in the past four years, selling out shows within minutes of their announcements.
