Noah ditches his seat behind the desk hosting The Daily Show for his stand-up tour. The South African comic takes inspiration from his upbringing, culture, and of course the current events that he takes aim at on The Daily Show. Don’t miss out on seeing this late-night funnyman when he hits a city near you in the coming months. Tickets available here.
Gaffigan has quietly flown under the radar as one of today’s in-demand comedians, but his brand of comedy is anything but underwhelming. He focuses on his family for most of his stand-up routines and has mastered the art of the dead-pan delivery. His relatable fodder has gained him plenty of fans to flock to his shows, which run through the year’s end. Find tickets here.
The perennial fan-favorite New Yorker is slated to travel outside the Big Apple for sellout shows through the end of the year. The most seasoned veteran on this list, Seinfeld is continuously one of the best-selling comedians year after year, with good reason. His signature stand-up mixed with his famed sitcom which lives on through syndication makes Jerry Seinfeld a must-see act. Find tickets to his upcoming shows here.
Chris Rock has always been a riot between his Saturday Night Live tenure, and movie and TV roles. However, he’s somehow funniest when he’s alone on stage and telling stories to a crowd. Rock’s blunt, tell-it-like-it-is humor separates him from a lot of other comedians today, especially when it comes to African American culture and other relevant topics. You can catch him at major venues across the country through December. Tickets available here.
Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias has been one of the most popular comics on the circuit since he broke through over a decade ago. His humor lies in self-deprecation about his weight and Mexican heritage, but remains lighthearted enough to consistently draw laughs from audiences. Check out Fluffy (dressed in his signature Hawaiian shirt garb) on various dates through January 2018. Browse tickets here.
