Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle announce joint stand-up comedy show in London


Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle have announced a joint stand-up comedy show in London, set to take place Sept. 3 at the O2 Arena. The controversial comedians have set an age limit at their event, only welcoming guests 18 years and older. Tickets will go on sale for the general public on June 10.

Rock, 57, recently joined Chappelle onstage at West Hollywood’s “The Comedy Store,” where both poked fun at their attacks. Chappelle, 48, was attacked onstage in May while performing at the “Netflix is a Joke” show in Los Angeles. Accused attacker Isaiah Lee, 23, said he was “triggered” by the comedian’s jokes about the LGBTQ community and homelessness, and claims he was inspired to attack the comedian after seeing Will Smith slap Rock at the Academy Awards.

Smith infamously slapped Rock onstage during the televised awards show after Rock cracked a bald joke about the actor’s wife, Jada-Pinkett Smith, who’s openly discussed her struggles with alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair to fall out.
