Dave Chappelle & Trevor Noah to headline Dubai Comedy Festival



Trevor Noah has been in the news a lot lately. Last month he was announced as the new presenter of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and his exclusive show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival sold out almost immediately. Today the big-name funny man was announced as the headliner for Dubai Comedy Festival, alongside fellow famous comic Dave Chappelle.

The Dubai Comedy Festival will no doubt become an institution. The event, which will take place from October 15 to 24, has a massive line-up, with internationally renowned acts joined by some of the regions hottest talent. The 10-day programme of events includes names such as local stand-up, Ali Al Sayed, Saudi Arabian YouTube sensation, Bader Saleh and American Comedy Magician, Mac King.

Dave Chappelle will no doubt draw in the ticket sales. The stand-up superstar has been selling out gigs across America over the past few years, most notably taking over NYC Radio City Music Hall for two weeks. Dubai Comedy’s Shows in Dubai Marina, and a purpose built venue at Skydive Dubai will host up to 4,500 people for the main events.
