Laughter shall ring in the air every day of the week…

Like the existing line up of A-list performers for Abu Dhabi Comedy Week wasn’t funny enough, masters of the craft, Andrew Schulz and Chris Tucker have now been confirmed for the Abu Dhabi Comedy Week in May.

Andrew Schulz, who brought his signature brand of shock comedy to the capital as recently as in October, will be back to raise your brows and have you in splits when the immensely popular New York-native takes to the stage on Yas on March 22. You can also expect hilarity at its finest with high-energy Rush Hour star Chris Tucker at his late show, following Tom Segura’s performance at the Etihad Arena on May 25.

Tickets for both performances go on pre-sale at noon on Thursday, March 28, followed by general sales from noon the following day. You can grab yours at
