The East African comedy scene has long been a bit of an under-the-radar one, talent laden though it may be. Tonight, May 29th, perhaps the biggest comedian in the Western world, is set to play a concert in Nairobi, bringing a globally prominent comedian to the East African stage as opposed to the normal circuit of South African venues (with a couple of random North African and perhaps Nigerian gigs mixed in as well.

Dave Chappelle, known for his work on Chappelle’s show as well as his prominent place among all time stand up comedy greats will take the stage tonight at the Louis Leakey Auditorium at the National Museum of Kenya.

The show was, for those of you who got excited, promptly sold out in less than two hours and looks to be a strictly a ‘no phones’ experience, with cells getting taken at the door.

The organizers of the gig hail from the Punchline Comedy Club in Nairobi.
