CHRIS ROCK 3Arena, Sep­tem­ber 30

The Amer­i­can A-lis­ter makes a Dublin stop-off on his first stand-up tour in nine years. In the mean­time, he’s been busy do­ing ev­ery­thing from star­ring in Hol­ly­wood films and in­tro­duc­ing the Os­cars, to mak­ing a doc­u­men­tary about black women’s hair. He’s also been quite vo­cal about the racism he still ex­pe­ri­ences in his home­land, and you can be sure the R-word and ref­er­ences to his un-es­teemed pres­i­dent will pop up in his set. The other big com­edy gig at the same venue is Micky Flana­gan (Oct 19-20).
