For one night only…
Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def, is set to perform his new stand-up comedy show in London tonight, August 29, starting at midnight.
The event was announced with little fanfare via the A Country Called Earth website. The venue is Stamford Works on Gillet Street in Dalston, across from NTS Radio’s studio on Gillet Square. According to the website, NTS will be broadcasting a portion of the show.
A trailer for the show can be seen below, with Bey riffing off the local barber shop in Gillet Square.
The rap renaissance man premiered his comedy show in Montreal earlier this month. He also appeared at Banksy’s Dismaland last night alongside Peanut Butter World and Breakbeat Lou.
