NJPAC presents Jordan Klepper

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Jordan Klepper, best known for his work on Comedy Central's The Daily Show and his Emmy-nominated specials focusing on the political world, is bringing his "Suffering Fools" tour to New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark on Friday, May 10, 2024 at 7:30pm.

The tour captures the pain and foolishness of our current moment, told through personal stories from Jordan's time on the road, including presidential run-ins, entertainment-world failures, and encounters with insurrectionists. With unique wit and candor, Jordan delves into universal desires and exposes our collective idiocies.

Tickets range from $42.40 to $62.50 and are available for purchase online, by calling 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.

From covering the gun safety debate (Jordan Klepper Solves Guns) to his docuseries on the world of activism (Klepper on Comedy Central) Jordan has witnessed an insurrection, capsized a boat with pipeline protestors, interviewed a President and been arrested and locked up in Fulton County Jail. He also travels the globe with his segment “Fingers The Pulse” which has racked up hundreds of millions of views.

Klepper wrote, starred and executive produced “Jordan Klepper Fingers the Pulse: Into The MagaVerse,” “Fingers The Midterms” (the most-watched special on Comedy Central) and “Hungary for Democracy,” the latter of which garnered him a Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in TV Political Journalism. He executive produced and hosted “The Opposition” and “Klepper” on Comedy Central, which was called “A fresh, powerful interpretation of news” by the Detroit Free Press.
