Live Nation Presents Roy Wood Jr. and Jordan Klepper: America, For the Last Time
Live Events | 01/13/2024 | 7:00PM
A comedic town hall that digs into the issues that matter and many of the ones that do not.
An evening of comedy celebrating America before it explodes and sinks into the ocean. Roy and Jordan will riff on today’s headlines, debate the good and the bad, and share stories from their time covering politics- from The Daily Show, to MAGA rallies, to the White House Correspondents Dinner. Whether it’s fielding audience questions or grilling a local baby-kisser, they promise half-baked analysis with 100% confidence.
