American comic Dave Chappelle to visit SA
American comedian and actor Dave Chappelle will perform in South Africa for the first time next month.
Live Nation Comedy in association with Real Comedy are presenting the American stand-up comic in three shows.
In 2017, Chappelle celebrated 30 years in comedy by releasing four stand-up specials on Netflix along with a companion double-feature vinyl comedy album.
He’s since netted two television Emmy awards, a Grammy, and Pollstar’s Comedy Tour of The Year award.
His trademark wit and sharp irreverent social commentary most often explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics and fame.
His career started at age 14 when he began performing stand-up comedy at nightclubs while studying drama in high school in Washington, DC.
Best known for his groundbreaking television sketch comedy programme Chappelle’s Show, Chappelle is one of the most popular touring comics on the US circuit - selling out shows within minutes of the announcements.
This month he also makes an appearance in the much-anticipated remake of the film “A Star is Born”.
Although Chappelle will not be visiting the Eastern Cape, he will be performing in three cities:
Cape Town on 27th November 2018 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest
Durban on 4th December 2018 at the Durban ICC
Johannesburg on 5th December 2018 at Teatro at Montecasino..
