Ticket starting at $20++

Comedian, columnist, and semi-finalist on America's Got Talent, Kevin Downey, Jr. has been wowing audiences with his rapid-fire, one-liner style, for two decades. Originally from Detroit, Kevin moved to New York City after high school looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a “part” at Macy’s Santa land as an elf, (some call it the longest running show on Broadway). Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York’s Comic Strip Live and realized his calling. Since then, he’s been on Comedy Central, What Not to Wear, and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Kevin can also be heard on The Bob and Tom Show, Sirius and XM Satellite radio regularly. His debut album, "I'm not Gay, but Dont Stop" can be found on Amazon. And no, Kevin is not related to Robert Downey, Jr.

He has also had three half hour standup specials on Comedy Central, a Showtime Special “Raw Nerve”, a self released special “Another Senseless Killing” “Inflammatory” and his newest and most controversial release “A Breath of Fresh Air” in 2019. He was one of the stars on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and a stand out on many Comedy Central Roasts.
