The Emmy award-winning comedian is back in Dubai for the third time, promising all-new material as he brings his Deported World Tour to the city.

When it arrives at Dubai Arena, the Deported World Tour will become the first show ever to take place at the state-of-the-art venue.

Upon opening, Dubai Arena will become the largest all-purpose, air-conditioned indoor arena in the Middle East with capacity to host up to 17,000 guests for a variety of events. The venue will be managed by international operator AEG Ogden, who are also responsible for The O2 Arena in London.

As well as concerts and festivals, conferences and exhibitions, Dubai Arena is expected to host sporting events such as basketball, boxing, volleyball, and ice hockey.
