After years of watching fuzzy copies of ‘Def Comedy Jam' borrowed from friends who picked up bootleg copies from places like 125th Street in Harlem, the popular comedy show heads to the UK for the first time. Def Comedy Jam is responsible for launching the careers of many comedians we know and love today including Dave Chapelle, Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac and Chris Tucker.
Judging by the popularity of comedy events in the UK I’m inclined to agree. The tour will commence in Manchester on Tuesday 16th September, followed by a date in Birmingham on the 17th, winding down at the Brixton Academy on September 20th. Tickets are priced at £33.50 for regional dates and £34.50 for the London date. Visit www.livenation.co.uk for further details.
