Dave Chappelle makes surprise appearance at local Liverpool comedy club
The US comedian has recently faced criticism over jokes involving transgender people.
He appeared at Hot Water Comedy club in Liverpool on Wednesday evening.
Taking to the stage at the intimate gig, Chappelle performed a set that lasted several hours.
It comes the day before he begins a short arena tour in the UK with fellow comedian Chris Rock.
The pair are due to perform at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, before two dates at London’s O2 Arena.
Chappelle is also taking part in a special tribute concert.
The concert is at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 3.
The concert is in memory of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
