Print More

Jon Stewart has agreed to put on a second show March 4, giving at least 5,000 more people a chance to see the acclaimed host of The Daily Show, according to a Jon Bellante ’06, chair of the Cornell University Programming Board (CUPB).

“The second show is a response to high demand,” he said. The show will take place almost immediately after the first at 10 p.m., according to a CUPB statement.

The tickets for the latter show, which are general admission by section, will be made available to the public at 9 a.m. tomorrow. Tickets will be $18 and $20 for University students, and $28 and $30 for the general public.

The tickets will only be available for purchase online, at www.cornelltickets.com, with pickup details to be posted on the website.

The original 5,000 tickets to the first show sold out in a matter of hours, as students camped out hours in advance for a chance to see the comedian-cum-media critic speak live.

If the second 5,000 tickets sell out just as fast, Bellante has indicated that a few hundred more “view-obstructed seats” may be sold on the day of the performance.
