Fresh off his successful special, “Candy & Smiley,” streaming on Amazon Prime and Apple TV, Ed Hill brings his stand-up to Fargo’s Front Street Taproom Sept. 30 - Oct. 1. The show is named after the names his parents took upon relocating from Taiwan to Canada and features personal stories about his and their lives, including that though his dad chose the name smiley, he rarely does. The Friday and Saturday night shows will be the comic’s first in the area. The laughs start at 8 p.m. with Nathan Fulsebakke and host Josh Dullea. Tickets are $20 , plus fees, for this ID-only show.
On his hidden camera reality TV show “Impractical Jokers,” Joe Gatto is known for improvisational skills, but it's his stand-up routine he’s bringing to the Fargo Theatre Sunday night, Oct. 2. After leaving the show late last year to focus on being a single dad, the comic has had time to work up new material to bring to two shows Sunday. While he may be spending a lot of time with his kids, these shows are for mature audiences. Showtimes are 4:30 and 8 p.m. Tickets range from $39.75 to $59.75, plus fees at jadepresents.com
