Comedian John Mulaney is in demand.
He’s so in demand, the “Saturday Night Live” writer and stand-up comic has had to add second shows in a dozen or so cities on his current tour. In Asheville, N.C., Mulaney booked a second show and still had to move to a larger venue.
Mulaney added new cities to his Kid Gorgeous tour, too, including Fresno. The comedian announced a July 14 date at Fresno’s Saroyan Theatre. Tickets cost $25-$35 and go on sale 7 p.m. Friday online or by phone at 800-745-3000, or at the Saroyan Theatre box office starting at 10 a.m.
Mulaney is a Jack of all comedy trades. He was a writer for “Saturday Night Live” (where he appeared on “Weekend Update”) and starred in his own short-lived sitcom on Fox. He currently works on IFC’s “Documentary Now” and Netflix’s “Big Mouth.” He’s also done Broadway and has released three well-received comedy specials including 2015’s “The Comeback Kid.”
This is the third comedy show the Saroyan has announce this month. Brian Regan stops at the theater July 16, just two days after Mulaney. The following month sees a stop from “country” comedian Rodney Carrington. Tickets for that show also go sale 10 a.m. Friday.
