FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
John Hodgman Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Saturday, September 12th, 2015, John Hodgman is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
Once again, The Daily Show’s John Hodgman is crawling out of your television to stand on stage and tell you jokes and stories.
In his latest one-human show, VACATIONLAND, John Hodgman will discuss these topics:
-his home commonwealth of MASSACHUSETTS, the birthplace of rage
-his exile to the state of MAINE, home to the world’s most painful beaches
-the laws regarding the dumping of household garbage in various rural towns
-how the people of various rural towns are probably planning to sacrifice you to their god
-the evolutionary purpose of the weird dad mustache
-how to decide which small animals you should love as members of your family and which you should kill with traps and poison
-other things he might think about that very morning–who knows?
-and how to tolerate the other great ambiguities of life, such as your death, garbage dumping (see above), and city busses, which, let’s face it, can pretty much end up going ANYWHERE if the driver goes crazy or just has a soul full of mischief. It’s terrifying.
John Hodgman is the longtime Resident Expert on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the host of the popular Judge John Hodgman Podcast. He has also appeared on Conan, The Late Late Show, @midnight, and This American Life. The Village Voice named his show RAGNAROK one of the top ten stand up specials of 2013. He has performed comedy for the President of the United States and George RR Martin, discussed love and alien abduction at the TED conference, and now he wants to talk to you.
John Hodgman will meet audience members and sign things after each performance.
