This Summer, Warner’s Got the Laughs
Nothing blows off steam like laughing so hard your stomach hurts and tears stream down your face. This season, the Warner Theatre has a great variety of comedians who are sure to keep you laughing all night long--maybe all summer long.
Seth Meyers: Most widely known for his head writer status at Saturday Night Live, Seth Meyers will take the stage June 21. Last month, it was announced Meyers will be taking over NBCs “Late Night” show next year. So, make sure to see his stand up, while he still has the time to tour. Tickets are $35.
Daniel Tosh: Daniel Tosh, host of Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, will do four shows at Warner -- two a night on June 22 and 23. Tosh’s popularity and status has only been growing the past couple of years. While he is most well-known for poking fun of others on his show, his stand-up is definitely worth seeing. Tickets range from $60 to $75.
Tracy Morgan: After gaining popularity from "Saturday Night Live," Morgan went on to star in Tina Fey’s NBC sitcom “30 Rock,” which just had its series finale. Morgan has often been in the news for political incorrectness but will no doubt put on a hilarious show. Tickets are $35 for the June 29 show.
Crimson Comedy Jam: Joe Torry will host this fun and memorable night full of Delta comics, as seen on BET and HBO. Keep in mind that no minors are allowed at this show. The July 13 performance has tickets ranging from $45 to $50.
Future: Tickets for both Russell Brand and John Oliver went on sale June 12, and be sure to mark your calendars for both of these English gentlemen. Brand is a comedian and actor, known for his role in the film, "Get Him to the Greek," and his memoir, "My Booky Wook." Oliver is best known for being a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s "The Daily Show." Oliver will be taking over as the show's host for a few months, while Stewart works on another project--and also hosts a satirical podcast of his own.
