Iliza Shlesinger Announces ‘Comedy Tailgate’ Drive-In Tour

As one of the top touring comedians of her generation, Iliza Shlesinger has developed her craft feeding off the energy of her live audience — so how will that change now that she is going on a drive-in tour, performing in front of socially distanced vehicles instead of a packed arena or theater?

“Inside the cars is a live audience; how do you think the cars got to the show?” she tells Billboard as she prepares to hit the road for the nine-city Comedy Tailgate Tour presented by Monster Energy at drive-in theaters across the U.S. this October.

“I treat my audience the same no matter where I am,” explains the L.A.-based comedian, who has five Netflix specials currently streaming, including her most recent Unveiled and Elder Millennial. She stars opposite Mark Wahlberg in the popular Netflix film Spenser Confidential and recently launched The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show on the streaming platform. She is also one half of Don’t Panic Pantry, her follow-along-at-home cooking web series with husband, chef and James Beard Award-nominated author Noah Galuten.

The drive-in tour shows will be socially distanced and fans will follow Iliza’s set through their car radio. Tickets for the tour are on sale now and dates are below.

Oct. 2 — Pittsburgh @ Starlight Drive-In
Oct. 3 — McHenry, Illinois @ McHenry Outdoor Theater
