Dave Chappelle announces eight London shows in September

Dave Chappelle is to perform a full stand-up set in the UK for only the second time.

The contemplative and completely hilarious comic will perform eight shows in London between September 6 and September 9 at intimate venues Brixton Electric and Camden Electric Ballroom, at 7pm and 9.30pm each night.

They follow a sold-out run in Hammersmith last year.

The Washington native, who starred in Chappelle’s Show for three years until 2006, has had a recent run of gigs in New York – where he labelled Black Lives Matter “a terrible slogan”, saying “enough is enough” would be better.

His publicist later told Mic: “It’s a comedy show. Saying ‘black lives matter’ is like calling gum chewy.”

More of the same can be expected at the shows in London, where phones are strictly not allowed.

Tickets are on sale here.
