Update, June 3 at 9:02 a.m. EDT: Following the overwhelming box office success of the first batch of shows, which saw all 10 appearances sell out very quickly, The Wilbur has added an additional 11 (!) shows to Mulaney’s stay in Boston. The run of 21 (!) shows now extends through Sunday, August 29. Tickets for those shows go on sale today at noon, and can be found here.


It’s no secret that the first half of 2021 has been a rough go for John Mulaney as he continues on the road back to the stand-up stage. Now, we’ve come to learn that this summer, that road will be going through Boston.


Following a string of sold-out shows, dubbed From Scratch, at New York City’s City Winery over the course of the last few weeks, it was announced today (June 2) that the comedy superstar will be bringing the show to The Wilbur Theatre for 10 (count it, 10!) shows between Saturday, August 14 and Saturday, August 21.

While he brought the house down at TD Garden as part of the 25th anniversary show for Denis Leary’s Comics Come Home in 2019, the string of gigs will mark his first full trip to Boston since 2017, where he split time between Symphony Hall and The Wilbur as part of his Kid Gorgeous tour.
