Dave Chappelle adds more dates

But they too sell out instantly, unless you've got hundreds of pounds to spare

Dave Chappelle has added five more nights to his run of dates in London.

But the new shows also sold out instantly at £100 a seat, leaving only 'platinum' tickets at £286 to £316.50 through Ticketmaster.

It puts the £400-plus that touts were asking on controversial ticket resale site Viagogo, as Chortle reported yesterday, into focus. 

Chappelle will now be at the 400-seat venue for five nights from February 9 to 19, promising new material following his 2019 Netflix special Sticks & Stones.

The gigs have a  strict no-mobile-phone policy, with audiences having to place their devices into secure pouches – or face ejection. And officially, the theatre offers a no-resale policy saying it can insist on ID and adding: 'If you sell or purchase tickets for this event via a reseller... the ticket will be cancelled without refund.'

LA PRINCESA DE WOKING

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
