It’ll be a Dogg’s day in Brooklyn next month.

On April 19, Snoop Dogg, the hip-hop hitmaker behind such singles as “What’s My Name” and “Gin & Juice” will perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg — and tickets sold out in minutes.

The venue is a tad small for the star — the last time he performed in Brooklyn, in July 2008, he filled the significantly larger Keyspan Park in Coney Island — but one that he and his handlers particularly sought out, according to Peter Shapiro, owner of the music venue-restaurant-bowling alley hybrid.

“This is exactly what we envisioned when we opened Brooklyn Bowl: large acts digging in for an intimate show,” said Shapiro. “Snoop was made for the Bowl.”

Since his 1993 debut, “Doggystyle,” Snoop Dogg has been a strong fixture on the rap scene as a musician and producer, as well as appearing in his fair share of movies and television shows.

Last year saw the release of the artist’s 10th studio album, “Malice in Wonderland,” a precursor to all the Lewis Carroll appreciation of late?

And on March 23, he’ll release “More Malice,” an eight-song disc and 40-minute mini-movie entitled “Malice N Wonderland: The Movie,” wherein Snoop plays the lead as a superhero on a mission to save his city.

Is there anything this guy can’t do (other than stay sober)?

Snoop Dogg plays Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. between N. 11th and N. 12th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 963-3369] April 19. Tickets are $50. For info, visit
