With each passing week there seems to be more promising news that we’re seeing the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we’re very much seeing spikes in pockets of the country, the rise in vaccinations is providing some much-needed light at the end of what’s been an extremely long tunnel. In addition to clubs opening back up, another positive sign is that comedy is starting to embark on national tours with high-level comedians hitting theaters.
We’ve already gotten announcements from the likes of Nate Bargatze, Iliza Shelsinger, and Bill Burr hitting theater-size venues or larger and the latest being The Daily Show’s Ronny Chieng making the announcement that he too will take to the road. This is easily Chieng’s largest tour to date as his profile has continued to grow beyond TDS as he’s gotten roles in movies like Crazy Rich Asians and Marvel’s upcoming Shang-Chi, network TV runs (Young Rock), and a Netflix special.
Chieng’s Hope You Get Rich tour kicks off in September and runs through the fall of 2021. Get tickets on his website.
