Katt Williams at Prudential Center

Katt Williams

Williams' sharply tuned mind is unafraid to tackle any topic, no matter how awkward it may seem. From first taking to the stage as a teenager with his thought-provoking (and hilarious) social commentary, William now boasts over 20 years in the 'biz. Known for covering topics like the war on drugs, truth and lies and even the chicken wing shortage, in his brand new tour 'Dark' Matter', who knows what Williams' will joke about!

Jordan Klepper at Victoria Theater

Jordan Klepper

Jordan Klepper, a comedian and former member of The Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade, is going on tour! His stint as a correspondent on The Daily Show spanned from 2014 to 2017, and he made a triumphant return to the show in December 2019. Now, he's embarking on a headline tour titled "Suffering Fools", with stops in cities like Chicago, Newark, St. Louis, and many more. Grab tickets to see him in person while you can!

Jo Koy at Prudential Center

Jo Koy

One of the most popular comics on today's circuit, it's rather hard to imagine Koy starting off in a humble Las Vegas coffee shop way back in 1994. As a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately's late-night show, he's won over audiences with his own eclectic brand of observational comedy, often stemming from family for inspiration and more often than not, his young son! Catch him live on tour - now continuing in 2024!
