FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 8, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Because of the popularity of Jon Stewart's upcoming appearance on Sept. 30, 2011, IU Auditorium has added an additional show that same night. The performance times are now 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
"Each season, we work hard to bring the artists and entertainers that our audiences want to see. We are thrilled with the overwhelming response to this comedy superstar and that Mr. Stewart is able to add this second show so that we will be able to accommodate all who are excited to see his live performance," said Doug Booher, director of IU Auditorium.
Since taking over as host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" in 1999, Stewart has interviewed buzz-worthy political leaders, authors, comedians, activists, actors and personalities. He has hosted the Oscars twice, been dubbed "Entertainer of the Year" by Entertainment Weekly, and received a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Comedy Album for his recording America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction.
To ensure the best seats to Jon Stewart and all other 2011-2012 season shows, patrons may become subscribers by choosing five events and can purchase these using a variety of payment options, such as the "50-50 Payment Plan" or payroll deduction for IU employees.
