Chris Rock sells out

His first UK dates

Chris Rock has added extra UK dates after selling out three of his four gig within hours.

Tickets for January’s shows - the first time he will play in Britain - went on sale at 10am today, and within two hours the 2,700-seater Manchester Apollo gig had sold out.

And by the afternoon, he had also sold out two shows at the 3,600-seater Hammersmith Apollo.

Two extra dates have now been announced in London on January 11 and 13.

Rock has won countless awards for his stand-up, and the sitcom about his youth, Everybody Hates Chris, is currently being shown on Five.

He has never performed his own show in Britain, although earlier in the year he made an unannounced visit to London’s Comedy Store to try out new material.
