GRAMMY and Emmy Award winning comedian Chris Rock will be bringing The Total Blackout Tour to the UK in January 2018. Kicking off on Thursday 11 January 2018, the tour will visit eight cities, culminating with three headline London shows.

Having previously announced eight stand-up shows, including three in London, Chris has now added extra dates in Bournemouth and Cardiff.

The Brooklyn, New York raised comedian, renowned for his quick-fire and often outrageous joke delivery such as 1999’s Bigger and Blacker, will be performing at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on the 12 January, and Bournemouth’s International Centre on the 13 January.

With an award winning career spanning three decades, Chris Rock celebrates accolades in comedy, acting, directing, writing and producing. He is set to appear alongside Adam Sandler in production of Netflix’s original movie, The Week Of. He will also executive produce BET’s newest late-night talk show, The Rundown with Robin Thede.

Here are those UK dates:

11 January – Manchester Arena, Manchester
12 January – Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
13 January – Bournemouth International Centre, Bournemouth
