Live Nation Middle East confirms that French comedy star, Gad Elmaleh, is set to perform at Dubai Opera on December 11, 2018 as part of The Dream Tour. The highly-anticipated English-language stand-up show will feature his last Netflix special American Dream as well as new material about culture shock. Tickets will be available via www.ticketmaster.ae and www.dubaiopera.com starting 12:00pm on Wednesday, July 18.
Said Gad who is now writing his Netflix series Huge in France, “Performing in English allows me to take my story and my comedy on a worldwide journey, which has been my dream since I was a kid.”
On stage, Gad continues to cement himself as one of the most widely known and beloved standup comedians working today. In January 2017, he released his latest comedy special Gad Gone Wild. The Netflix Original showcased Gad’s impressive multi-lingual ability, as the material was performed in a mix of English and French. Since his move to the United States, Gad has quickly grown from being France’s most popular standup comedian to becoming a global comedy sensation. In 2015, he completed a residency at Joe’s Pub in New York City, which saw him performing to sold-out crowds for more than fifty nights. The impressive run led to a multi-city major comedy tour across the United States, culminating in a sold-out show at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in February 2017.
Gad also made history by selling out the prestigious Olympia theater hall in Paris for seven consecutive weeks, a feat that had never before been accomplished. He followed the sold-out run with another seven sold-out weeks of shows at the Palais des Sports, a 3,800-seat venue also in Paris.
As an actor, Gad starred in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris alongside Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams as well as Steven Spielberg’s directed film The Adventures of Tintin as “Ben Salaad.” Some of the other movies Gad has starred in are Pattaya, The Midnight Orchestra, Capital, Les Seigneurs, Happiness Never Comes Alone, Jack and Jill, La Rafle, Coco and more.
