Jinkx and DeLa Holiday Show

The Queens of Christmas return for 2024 with another holiday spectacular for everyone naughty or nice! Making the yuletide gay since 2018, this glorious collaboration from two of RuPaul's DragRace's most glittering alumni is the perfect tonic for the hysteria of the holiday season, with boozy holiday cheer infused with good old razzle-dazzle song and dance numbers, copious amounts of eggnog and classic carols with a cheeky drag twist.

Gabriel Iglesias at Smoothie King Center

Gabriel Iglesias

A now iconic stand-up known for his bold Hawaiian print shirts and larger-than-life personality, Iglesias' comedic style combines his talent for storytelling with voicing characters and brilliantly realistic sound effects. Throw into the mix his cross-cultural and clean-spoken style of comedy, and you have a rare gem who has far-reaching appeal for family audiences too. This is one guy who's guaranteed to have the whole family crying with laughter!

Jo Koy at Saenger Theatre

Jo Koy

One of the most popular comics on today's circuit, it's rather hard to imagine Koy starting off in a humble Las Vegas coffee shop way back in 1994. As a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately's late-night show, he's won over audiences with his own eclectic brand of observational comedy, often stemming from family for inspiration and more often than not, his young son! Catch him live on tour - now continuing in 2024!

Felipe Esparza at Orpheum Theater

Felipe Esparza

With his wild tangle of curly black hair and a boyish, mischievous grin permanently on his face, Felipe Esparza cuts a unique figure in the world of stand up. Winner of the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, the Mexican-born, East LA-raised funnyman overcame the poverty, gang violence and drug addiction of his youth using comedy as an emotional outlet. Don't miss this hilarious dark horse of comedy!

Mark Normand at Orpheum Theater

Mark Normand

Stand-up comedian and actor Mark Normand isn't shy when it comes to certain topics, he's become known for his snappy one-liners and unfiltered honesty.

You'll find out why Normand has become a global name and earned himself a place among the great comedians.

Tom Segura at Uno Lakefront Arena

Tom Segura

Reputed to be the funniest beard in the business, comedian Tom Segura has a list of credits that would put the Titanic movie to shame.
