Jake Johannsen: An Evening of Comedy

Saturday, May 11, 2024
8:00 pm10:00 pm
Arden Gild Hall

The Arden Concert Gild & the J present live comedy by Jake Johannsen. Jake’s bizarre take on life and his uniquely intelligent style have made him a regular at comedy clubs all over the country. This performance at the Gild Hall will be his first time appearing in Delaware. You don't want to miss this.

A self-confessed raconteur of weird stories, it’s no wonder that Jake was one of David Letterman’s favorite comics. With 46 Letterman appearances under his belt (not to mention a handful of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Politically Incorrect gigs), Jake is no stranger to late night television. His late night appearances gave him the exposure he needed to land his very own HBO comedy special, This’ll Take About An Hour. Jake received incredible reviews, strong ratings, and a Cable Ace Award nomination for Best Writing in an Entertainment Special. People Magazine rated the special as one of the “ten best television shows of the year,” and TV Guide named it one of the “50 Funniest Moments of TV.”
