Comedian Amy Schumer will conclude what has been a very big year for her with a performance at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Dec. 31, 2016.
Tickets for her New Year’s Eve show range in price from $46.50 to $124.50 plus service charges. Following several pre-sales, tickets go on sale to the general public Tuesday at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
Like contemporary Louis C.K., Schumer has made the leap from doing stand-up at small comedy clubs to large arenas. Her career ranges across multiple platforms, from live performances to movies (“Trainwreck”) to her “Inside Amy Schumer” show on Comedy Central to a forthcoming book, “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo.”
She recently became the first female comedian to headline Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Her upcoming world tour kicks off Aug. 26 in Ireland, then arrives in North America in September. She’ll visit more than 50 cities before winding up the tour, and the year, in New Orleans.
