Just For Laughs has already announced six Dave Chappelle shows, and since they’re just about sold out, we’re excited that comedy legend Dave Chappelle has added a 7th show! Montrealers obviously wasted no time in snatching up tickets to see Dave Chappelle as soon as they dropped, but fear not! If you are dying to see the iconic comedian perform live, you still have a chance! Due to popular demand, JFL has just announced an additional performance happening at Theatre Maisonneuve Place Des Arts on July 23.
Whether you were a fan of his role as Ahchoo in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, or spent more than a couple lazy nights getting Half Baked with lovable Thurgood Jenkins, or memed any one of his hilarious characters on the Chappelle Show, Dave Chappelle has no doubt made you laugh out loud more than once. Maybe even had you rolling on the floor while doing so.
Chappelle continues to be a major influential force, brilliantly using his unique brand of comedy to shed light on more important issues, sometimes even before it happens. Never afraid of telling it like it is, the stand-up hilariously called out the media for uselessly praising celebrities back in 2004 during his comedy special ‘For What It’s Worth’. Ja Rule had been interviewed regarding 9-11 , to which Dave commented,“Who gives a f*ck what Ja Rule thinks at a time like this… this is ridiculous.” Some 10 years later, and those words are still ringing true following a recent Fox News interview with the rapper discussing Baltimore and the 2016 elections.
The JFL lineup in general this year is absolute madness, with phenomenal local and international talents from all over, but Chappelle has got to be one of our all-time favourites. He's been absolutely killing it and selling out shows since he last came here in 2013, and since Montreal is the only Canadian city he'll be visiting this year, don't miss this rare chance to see one of the best in the business while he's here. Make sure to get your tickets early when they go on sale this Friday, June 26 at 10AM, because they are guaranteed to sell out fast.
