Dave Chappelle announces last-minute intimate work-in-progress shows

Dave Chappelle has announced a last-minute series of ‘The Process’ London shows for later in the week during which he will be testing new material.

The comedian will perform two nights at Leicester Square Theatre on Thursday and Friday (April 18-19), with both shows starting at 9:30pm. He will then perform two shows at Bush Hall on Sunday (April 21), one of which will start at 7pm, the other at 10pm.

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow (April 17) at 10am – you can buy yours here.

Attendees are banned from having phones, cameras or video recording equipment on them at the show. They will have to put any phones or smartwatches they have on them in Yondr pouches which will later be unlocked at the end of the show. Their devices will remain on their person and if needed, they can access their phone via a designated unlocking station in the lobby.

Earlier this month, Jerrod Carmichael discussed his previous criticisms of Chappelle, who has received backlash in recent years for comments made about the transgender community.

“He took it as ‘Fuck Dave Chappelle,’ because he’s an egomaniac. He wanted me to apologize to him publicly or some shit.”

He expanded: “[Chappelle is] not revealing anything personal about himself and he’s removed from what he’s talking about, and I think he’s smarter than that and deeper than that and has more interesting thoughts.”

Back in February, Chappelle won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album, for a speech he made defending artistic expression.

gained his fifth recognition from the prestigious academy on Feburary 5, for What’s In A Name – a 40-minute Netflix show taken from a speech addressed at his alma mater, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington D.C.

Released in July 2022, the special was taken from a speech he gave at his high school the month before, which was meant to be celebrating the renaming of the school’s theatre after Chappelle, in which he defended his previously criticised work, The Closer.
