Comedian Dave Chappelle returns for Dubai gig – but no phones allowed
Dubai regular Dave Chappelle is returning to the city for a one-off midweek performance next month.
The American comedian, who converted to Islam in 1998, has been performing comedy for more than 30 years. Chappelle will take the stage at Dubai World Trade Centre on November 20. But the performance comes with a strict warning.
No phones allowed.
Event organisers Live Nation said that the audience will be searched on arrival and anyone found in possession of a phone will have it confiscated.
They have urged people to leave their phones in their cars or at home saying: "These steps will ensure everyone in attendance is free to enjoy the night for what it is – an untarnished live performance from one of the best comedic talents in the world".
