“I was rolling with laughter in the front, and John definitely saw it. The best part about it was the amount of unexpected things that happened (fireworks outside, heckling, mispronunciations), and yet he retorted in even more hilarious ways, eventually integrating them into the jokes of his set.”

More than twenty years ago, a spunky new standup artist didn’t make a complete fool of himself debuting at the 2001 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Some things happen next, but long story short, he’s now the host/producer of HBO’s universally praised talk show, Last Week Tonight. *checks notes* He’s also headlining a US comedy tour of 13 shows through August and September, with a stop here in downtown Seattle, Washington.

The Paramount Theatre will host three shows in two days, offering state-of-the-art acoustic and lighting facilities, excellent customer service, and a delicious art-deco backdrop.
