Drive-in stand-up comedy shows have popped up in parking lots this past month from my neighborhood of Astoria, Queens, all the way to Alaska.
Bert Kreischer may be the first comedian to attempt to leverage this pandemic solution into a full-fledged tour. He announced four dates for “Bert Kreischer’s Hot Summer Nights” at drive-in movie theater locations in North Carolina, Indiana, Oklahoma and Colorado. Or, as Kreischer put it Thursday: “I’ve partied 9 times in 74 days. I’m ready to get back on the road.”
Tickets for all four dates went on sale today.
