Popular Comedian Adds Another Iowa Show To Summer Tour
The hilarious comedian is adding another Iowa stop to his tour!
Even if you are not really into standup comedy, you know the name John Mulaney. Over the past decade he has quickly grown to prominence in the comedy community. The Chicago native started off as a writer for 'Saturday Night Live' in the early 2000s.
Mulaney's stand-up work is often considered the very best of the best. His old-school approach to observational comedy while addressing modern and oftentimes straight-up weird concepts are what has endeared him so much to audiences.
His last Iowa stop was such a commercial success that he added an additional timeslot. The initial June 23rd, 2017 show in Des Moines sold-out so quickly that his team decided to add an evening show.
This marked his last official show in Iowa for more than five years. Since then, his career has eclipsed almost every other comedian in stand-up today.
In just five years he appeared on Broadway with his peer Nick Kroll in Oh, Hello! on Broadway, released another massively successful Netflix special John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City, and even hosted 'Saturday Night Live' FIVE times!
He is a part of the hilarious Five-Timers Club. My favorite all-time John Mulaney moment on SNL has to be the infamous Diner Lobster sketch.
The comedian initially announced the dates on his standup tour From Scratch around noon on Tuesday, April 5th. These included stops throughout the Midwest and Canada.
This performance is looking alot like his Des Moines show from five years ago.
The seasoned comic has a show scheduled in Davenport for July 24th. Due to the amazing ticket numbers and interest, Mulaney has added yet another Iowa show to his tour schedule.
For fans who put Sunday, July 24th into their calendars with the hopes of seeing John Mulaney; don't worry! The second Iowa show is slated to take place only a few hours later in the Adler Theater in Davenport.
Mulaney broke the news on his Instagram on Monday, April 18th! Tax day!
The additional show at Adler Theater is set for 10 PM on July 24th. You can purchase tickets here.
