  • French comedy star, Gad Elmaleh, is set to bring his stand-up tour worldwide with the launch of “The Dream Tour.” Kicking off September 20th, the highly-anticipated tour will feature his latest Netflix special “Gad Elmaleh: American Dream” as well as new material about culture shock. With dates across Europe, Asia and North America, Gad will perform over 20 shows throughout fall 2018.

    Gad who is now writing his Netflix series “Huge in France,” said “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.” “The Dream Tour” will commence on September 20th in Antwerp, Belgium.

    Gad Elmaleh is one of the biggest and most recognizable comedic talents in the world. Gad’s first English language special, “Gad Elmaleh: American Dream,” is now available on Netflix. 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 “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. Overseas, Gad 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.

    In the film world, Gad starred as “Ben Salaad” in the Steven Spielberg-directed film The Adventures of Tintin and could be seen opposite Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. His additional film work includes Pattaya, The Midnight Orchestra, Capital, Les Seigneurs, Happiness Never Comes Alone, Jack and Jill, La Rafle, Coco, and more. Gad has also made memorable appearances on a number of American television programs including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Daily Show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and more.
