The internationally recognized stand-up comedian and actor’s trademark wit and sharp, irreverent social commentary explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics, and fame. Dave Chappelle will be performing at Stephen’s Auditorium on Tuesday January 28, 2020.
Arguably the most-touring comic on the circuit, Chappelle has performed more than 1,600 concerts worldwide in the past four years, selling out shows within minutes of their announcements.
The past few years have been banner for Chappelle. In 2017, he released four highly anticipated specials on Netflix: The Art of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity and The Bird Revelations. All four specials were delivered on vinyl as double-feature albums and received Grammy Awards®for Best Comedy Album in 2018 and 2019. Pollstar awarded Chappelle with Comedy Tour of The Year in 2014 and 2018 and he captured his second Emmy®for Outstanding Variety Special with Equanimity in 2018.
About 10 days ago Dave Chappelle announced he was endorsing Presidential candidate Andrew Yang. Still there is no word if Chappelle will campaign for Yang during his visit to Iowa.
“I’m Yang Gang!” Chappelle said in his endorsement.
“Dave is one of the most important voices in our country today and I’m thrilled he has thrown his support behind this campaign,” Andrew Yang remarked in a statement. “He and I share similar concerns about the future and hopes for what it could be. We are also parents who see the world that we are leaving to our kids and believe they deserve better.”
Rolling Stone ranks Chappelle among the top 10 of the “50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time.” Esquire Magazine has called him “the comic genius of America,” and he was featured on the covers of GQ Magazine’s Man of the Year issue in 2015 and The New York Times Magazine in 2017.
