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).
