From Hammond to Rannazzisi

Steven Rannazzisi

Getting tickets to see Steve Rannazzisi¬†(he might hate this, but you likely know him as Kevin on The League)¬†tonight got me thinking about the other comics I’ve seen perform live. Below, a list with approximate dates.

  • Darryl Hammond, Sept. 2003 (John Fugelsang opening)
  • Dane Cook, October 2004
  • Mitch Hedberg, November 2005 (Stephen Lynch opening)
  • Eugene Mirman, June 2008 (As part of a live taping of Late Night with Conan O’Brien)
  • Ricky Gervais, June 2008 (Todd Berry opener)
  • Demitri Martin, February 2009
  • Conan O’Brien’s live tour, June 2009 (this counts, right? Deon Cole performed a short set)
  • Bob Saget, December 2010
  • Aziz Ansari, October 2011 (Joe Mande opening)
  • Bill Burr, July 2012 (Multiple openers)
  • Louis CK, November 2012 (With Gary Gulman opening)
