John Mulaney adds January Milwaukee stop to tour
The last time Milwaukee had John Mulaney in town back in August of 2022, the comedian was in the middle of his biggest run of arena shows to date as part of his "From Scratch" tour. That included a stop at Fiserv Forum, and the routine wound up as a Netflix special titled BABY J.
On Monday, the Chicago native announced a return to the Cream City with a show at the Miller High Life Theatre on Jan. 11 as a late addition to his ongoing In Concert tour. In fact, Mulaney chose to return from his holiday break and pick back up in Milwaukee before a string of shows in St. Louis, Oklahoma and California.
If the content of BABY J was a very public airing of Mulaney's drug use, intervention, rehab and newborn son, I suspect his new show will be sort of a "part two" of those topics, about 18 months since his last visit. But if there's one thing I've learned from watching every Mulaney comedy special and a handful of his other projects, it's that he keeps you on your toes — and always gets the laughs.
The show at the High Life Theatre will be a phone- and smartwatch-free event, utilizing the secure Yondr pouches Mulaney and other comedians like Dave Chappelle have become known to use for a more intimate and secretive performance.
Tickets range from $49.50 to $99.50, with presales beginning Wednesday, Nov. 8, and a general on-sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10. For more information, visit the Pabst Theater Group website.
