Where I’m at in my life now, mainly relationships, friends, family. And yeah, it’s a different show. Definitely nothing that’s been on Netflix or YouTube.”

We suggest listening to The Jim Jefferies Show Podcast, which features casual discussions, interviews, and zero filters. Don’t sleep on getting tickets to Jim Jefferies, “The Moist Tour,” today.
Bianca Del Rio

The self-proclaimed “clown in a gown,” and season six winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Bianca Del Rio will be touring throughout North America, bringing her tell-it-like-it-is attitude towards comedy that embraces the irreverent, the meaningless, the silly. Her aim? For you to let loose and have fun. Bianca Del Rio’s “Unsanitized” Tour is the dose of comedy we need to break through into the ridiculousness of these times. Don’t miss out on witnessing this radiant, and hilarious, talent on tour this fall.

On Tour: September 17, 2021 – December 31, 2021
Through the end of this year, fans can catch Jim Gaffigan on his “We All Deserve This, Fun Tour.” Jim Gaffigan is the best comedian—by far—at extracting the hilarity out of boring, day-to-day life. His dry humor, when applied to the doldrums of raising a family, makes Gaffigan one of the most relatable comics on the scene. Not to mention he is one of very few within his profession to sell out NYC’s Madison Square Garden. Though he tours often—sometimes behind his books—we think fans should seize as many opportunities as possible to see this comedian live, as he’s constantly refreshing his Dad jokes.
On Tour: September 17, 2021 – July 16, 2022

Iliza Schlesinger is currently on the “Back in Action” Tour, bringing her witty and wry humor to audiences nationwide through next summer.
On Tour: October 13, 2021 – November 21, 2021

This is Sloss’ first tour since 2018 and the release of Daniel Sloss: X. We can’t wait to hear what Sloss has to say about the past few years, what humorous insight he has for us after all this time.

Even though many of us are still recovering from the hilarity of her HBO Max special Chelsea Handler: Evolution, Chelsea Handler is hitting the road for a 40-date tour. And she wants you to know, she’s horny. And vaccinated.
“Never have I been so confident about my decision-making in remaining childless and alone than I did during this pandemic. I can’t count how many times I high-fived myself every time a friend used the term ‘homeschooling,’ ” Handler tells Variety. “But, as a permanent single professional, I do like to get my groove on, and the best way to get that across is to make it the title of the tour. Now, everyone will know that I’m horny. And that I’m vaccinated.”
On Tour: September 15, 2021 – June 11, 2022
Famed comedian Tom Segura is bringing his “I’m Coming Everywhere” World Tour to pretty much everywhere from now until June 2022.
