A Live Comedy Show is Coming to the McGrath Amphitheatre
It's been a while since we've been able to see a live comedy show in Cedar Rapids, but that's going to change later this month! According to the McGrath Amphitheatre's Facebook page, comedian Theo Von will be headlining at the venue on Saturday, September 26th.
If you've never heard of Theo, here's what the McGrath Amphitheatre's website has to say about him:
"Theo Von has become one of the biggest names in comedy. Von recently performed to sold-out large theaters across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Scandinavia, and Australia on his DARK ARTS TOUR. Theo is well known for his much-admired Netflix special NO OFFENSE (2015) and will be releasing his upcoming special in Fall 2020."
Theo also has his own podcasts, 'This Past Weekend' and 'King and the Sting,' and has been featured on other popular podcasts like The Joe Rogan Experience. If you want to check out a bit of his stand-up, here's a set he did for Comedy Central's 'This is Not Happening' back in 2018 (the video DOES feature explicit content):
