Many await as American comedian and actor Dave Chappelle, whose trademark wit and sharp, irreverent social commentary explores race, popular culture, politics, and fame, goes live in the Philippines for the first time.

For two nights—January 14 and 15, 2020—the internationally recognized stand-up comedian brings his award-winning comedy at The Theatre at Solaire.

Arguably the most-touring comic in the circuit, Chappelle has performed in more than 1,600 concerts worldwide in the past four years, selling out shows within minutes of their announcements.

This year, Chappelle received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor; released his fifth Netflix special, ''Sticks and Stones,'' and was nominated for a Grammy Award® for the same title.

His four other highly anticipated Netflix specials: ''The Art of Spin,'' ''Deep in the Heart of Texas,'' ''Equanimity,'' and ''The Bird Revelations,'' all received Grammy Awards® for Best Comedy Album in 2018 and 2019, with Equanimity earning him a second Emmy® for Outstanding Variety Special in 2018.

No cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed at this show. Yondr, the company behind the patented locked phone pouch system for phone-free spaces will be introducing its product to the Philippine market for the first time. Audience members with cellphones will be required to place them in provided Yondr pouches for the duration of the event. Anyone recording or taking photos with a cell phone inside the venue will be immediately ejected. Additionally, all material performed is copyright protected by Pilot Boy Productions, Inc./Dave Chappelle and may not be reproduced in any form.

Both shows start at 8:00 pm. Tickets are available at and at the Solaire Box Office.
