Fargo Comedy Fest presented by Captain Morgan
“To my amazing fans,
Not exactly kicking off my tour with a bang as I am canceling my first show. Fargo, please understand! I am a worried new mom and I don’t feel comfortable leaving my baby amidst an escalating global pandemic while LA is in a state of emergency. My husband, Moshe Kasher, is a very brave man of his word so he will be there. I am not scared of Fargo, just the hourly escalation of all things Corona here in LA and I don’t feel comfortable traveling and leaving my child. Please accept my truly talented replacement, Nick Thune.”
Laughs are still on the agenda this weekend! Nick has been on The Tonight Show seven times, has a stand-up special on Netflix titled Nick Thune: Folk Hero. Moshe and Nick can’t wait to perform at the historic Fargo Theatre TONIGHT with The Cellar’s favorite John Kennedy! Before the show, stop by The Cellar and catch your favorite local comedians. Following the show, there will be an after party at Marge’s Bar. We invite you to join us and laugh + drink with the best company in the Midwest.
Tickets will be available at the door of The Fargo Theatre.
