CHRIS ROCK

Comedy titan Chris Rock returns to the road for his first stand-up tour in nine years! These shows will be comprised of all new material, with the recent US election giving Rock plenty of subject matter to draw upon. He'll also have a chance to reflect on his gig hosting the 88th Academy Awards, a show which was mired in the OscarsSoWhite controversy.

This show is happening at multiple venues in Dec 2017:

Theater at Madison Square Garden

Brooklyn-born Jerry Seinfeld continues his Beacon Theater residency, playing one show every month.

Amateur Night At The Apollo has been a key feature in the local music scene since 1934 when it launched, and has been the stepping stone in the career of many world-class musicians and entertainers, including Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder. The audience has the responsibility of cheering loudly for those they like, and booing those they deem less adept off the stage. More info

This controversial comic continues to raise laughs (as well as eyebrows) with his own particular brand of cringe humor. As well as hosting the adult-oriented Opie With Jim Norton Show on SiriusXL Radio, Norton continually tours the US performing live to brave audiences. Described as having literally no filter on what he covers in his acts, be prepared for an eye-opening array of stories that will make you splutter, wince and quite possible facepalm yourself.

Sinbad has kept America laughing hysterically for the best part of the last 20 years, and coming to prominence in the Nineties with a variety of television performances and film appearances, including Jingle All The Way, opposite Arnold Schwartznegger. He freely admits that he doesn't know actual jokes asuch, aside from those from "back in the day" that his preacher father told him. In fact, he credits his father's attendance at an early gig of his to concentrate on clean, observational humor - having been caught in the middle of telling a "semi-dirty story". His humor is inspired from every day events, from the people he meets, to the scrapes he gets into. More info

With a long history of his forefathers becoming rabbis, Jackie Mason was destined for a life in the synagogue before he bucked the trend and became one of the most recognisable and accomplished borscht belt comedians of the 60s and 70s. With the ability to deftly combine a self-deprecating humour with a playful arrogance, his acerbic wit explored every topical subject from his own religion to American Culture. More info

Man of a thousand voices and all round comic whirlwind Jim Breuer is heading out on tour once again. While he's a cult icon for his role in stoner comedy Half Baked with Dave Chappelle, Breuer has made a conscious decision to shift his stand-up in a family friendly direction in recent years because "it's much more challenging".
