    After the success of his sold-out inaugural theater tour and fresh off the acclaim of his Netflix special, SECRET TIME, comedian Bert Kreischer is announcing today that his global Body Shots World Tour will continue this fall on November 14th at Fresno’s Saroyan Theatre. Kreischer is lauded as one of the best storytellers of his generation with an ability to prove “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age.” (Forbes)

    Described as having a “rare and incredible talent” (Interrobang), Bert has evolved from being named Rolling Stone’s 1997 “Number One Partier in the Nation” to one of the top names in comedy. Between his two previous stand-up specials, THE MACHINE on Showtime (2016), which is now streaming on Netflix, and COMFORTABLY DUMB on Comedy Central (2009), selling out venues on tour, his podcast: “Bertcast,” his YouTube show: “Something’s Burning,” and his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child (2014), Bert has succeeded in finding the elusive blend of “being a cringe comedian with real insight” (Interrobang). With the success of the Body Shots World Tour, Kreischer recently broke into the top 100 tours, as reported by Pollstar, and served as the host of the Pollstar Awards earlier this year.

    “I just got a full blood panel back & my liver is healthy,” Kreischer said prepared. “I can’t wait for this tour.”

      Dennis Miller – Comedian

      America, How Can We All Play Nice Again?

      The Hollywood Report calls Dennis Miller “the most cerebral, astute and clever standup ever to put mouth to microphone.”  For nearly four decades, Dennis Miller has been entertaining audiences across television, film and on stage with his acerbic wit and trademark “rants” on politics and pop culture.  Equal parts comedian and social commentator, Dennis’s scathing-yet-playful perspective reminds audiences not to take themselves (or anyone else for that matter) too seriously. He brings a pragmatic take on the world in these polarizing times.  Miller’s inventive and humorous presentation will teach us the art of how to disagree agreeably.

      Miller is a five-time Emmy award winner for his critically acclaimed live talk show Dennis Miller Live.  He is the author of 4 books, all of which are New York Times best sellers.  His career was launched on Saturday Night Live in 1985 as the “Weekend Update” correspondent.

        Event Description

        Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy sells-out theaters and arenas across the world with his infectious and explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, with material that has universal appeal.

        In November 2017, the comedian broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu with 11 sold-out shows and over 23,000 tickets sold. Celebrating this accomplishment, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed November 24th as “Jo Koy Day.” Koy is also the only comedian to sell out 6 shows at The Warfield in San Francisco, he broke the attendance record at Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg with 4 sold-out shows, and is one of the few acts to sellout 2 shows at The Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, FL. In July 2018, Koy was given the prestigious “Stand-Up Comedian Of The Year” award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

        Today, the comedian tours around the world and is currently wrapping up his Break The Mold World Tour just in time for his highly anticipated Netflix special, Comin’ In Hot to release June 2019. Koy will launch his Just Kidding World Tour in August 2019 with all new material not on the previous tour or upcoming special.

        Koy released his first stand-up comedy album, Live From Seattle and reached #1 on the Billboard Charts. He can also be heard on his weekly podcast, The Koy Pond with Jo Koy by Starburns Audio. Listeners can dive in each week as Koy welcomes friends and fellow comedians to share their hilarious insights on life. For more info on the podcast, album and tour dates, please visit: jokoy.com.

        TruTV has also greenlit the animated comedy pilot, This Functional Family starring Koy. The half-hour animated project puts Koy at the center of a fractured, patched-up, multiracial, dysfunctional family. It draws upon Koy’s real-life experiences and characters featured in his stand-up.

        Later this year, fans can also catch Koy on the silver screen co-starring alongside Brandon Routh and Donna Murphy as “Vladimir Lenin” in the upcoming live-action film, Anastasia.

        In 2005, Koy had the opportunity of a lifetime when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show. Since then, Koy has had three highly rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central and Netflix, which includes his most recent Netflix special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle

        Koy has appeared on over 140 episodes of Chelsea Lately as a season regular roundtable guest. Other appearances include: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Beat Bobby Flay, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, Spike TV’s Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live, Celebrity Page TV, VH1, World’s Funniest Fails, Sean In The Wild, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Last Call with Carson Daly.
