Chris Rock coming to Dubai January 2018
Chris Rock – the Grammy and Emmy award-winning actor, director, writer and producer – has announced he'll be performing in the UAE for two nights. Friday, January 5 and Saturday, January 6.
His latest Dubai performance will be part of the comedian's 2017/2018 Total Blackout world tour. It started in the US and will head over to the Middle East before going to London. The tour marks the first time in nine years that the comedian has embraced stand-up for a full-blown tour.
According to Time Out Dubai:
"His Dubai visit will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, in Hall 3 and 4. Tickets start at Dhs395 and go on sale on Wednesday, September 13 at noon, head to ticketmaster.ae or any Virgin Megastore branch in the UAE to get your ticket. There’s also an exclusive pre-sale for du customers starting on Monday, September 11 at noon, closing at 11 am on Wednesday, September 13."
The tour promises to be a mixture of Rock's trademark dark humour around topics such as politics, race and observational humour. Judging by the star's openness about being close friends with Barack and Michelle Obama, we expect there's be more than a few jabs at current president Donald Trump.
