The famous funnyman will do a one-off show at Dubai Opera this November…

It’s a versatile venue that has played host to everything from squash tournaments to pop concerts. And now Dubai Opera is set to add another string to its bow, as it hosts famous funnyman Al Murray later this year.

The British comedian will perform a one-night show on Tuesday November 20, with early bird tickets priced at Dhs120.

Commonly known as ‘The Pub Landlord’, Murray has been performing sellout shows around the globe for more than two decades. Murray’s huge stand-up shows have seen him become one of the UK’s best-loved funnymen, thanks to his belly-laugh comedy style.

But be warned, those wishing to get front row seats, the stand up comedian is famed for picking on audience members.

Al Murray is the second of two comedy gigs announced for Dubai Opera, with the first taking place in July as British show Comedy Night, produced by Arts Canteen, is brought in from the UK for the first time ever. The show will see four renowned comedians all take to the Dubai Opera stage together on Friday July 6. 

“With Danny Bhoy and Spamalot we’ve already seen audiences loving hilarious comedy at Dubai Opera and here are two more great nights in prospect featuring a collection of the funniest Arab-British stand-ups next month and then the incomparable Al Murray in November”, commented Jasper Hope, Chief Executive at Dubai Opera.
