Dave Chapelle and friends
With an increasing number of stand-up specials made especially for its roster (over 200 can be found on-site already), it makes sense that streaming heavyweight Netflix is taking its golden comedy formula to the stage. Finally taking place from April 28 to May 8, the first-ever Netflix Is A Joke Fest is set to leave LA in stitches, featuring the biggest and brightest established comics, as well as up-and-coming performers that are just itching to be discovered by new fans. Don't miss the one and only Dave Chapelle who'll be presenting - an evening of comedy, music, and special guests at the Hollywood Bowl, April 30.
Making a name for himself on the New York comedy circuit from the early 90s, the comedian began gaining popularity at an unprecedented pace hitting the big time with Chappelle's Show on Comedy Central in 2003. Following the show, Chappelle made a few rare TV and stand-up appearances until 2013, when he returned to the comedy circuit. Since then the streetwise stand-up's career has hit milestone after milestone, including two Emmy awards and two Grammy awards for his TV appearances and comedy albums.
