Chappelle headlines Abu Dhabi's Inaugural Comedy Week


Chappelle, one of comedy's most distinct voices, will headline Abu Dhabi Comedy Week at the Etihad Arena on May 23. 

The show promises to be a laughter-filled extravaganza featuring a star-studded lineup.

Chappelle's trademark comedic style has brought a vibrant edge to American comedy. As demonstrated in his Netflix specials, his unique blending of personal experiences with wider social observations is instantly recognisable. 

He left his mark with a memorable live stand-up show at the Dubai World Trade Centre in November 2018. 

Tickets go on sale at 10:00 am on April 23, with pre-sale tickets going live at 10:00 am on April 22 via Live Nation.

Abu Dhabi Comedy Week, in partnership with Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi and Yas Island, takes place on Yas Island between May 18 and 26.
