From a press release:

Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, New York Times bestselling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five Jim Gaffigan will perform his hilariously clean stand-up at the Giant Center in Hershey on Friday, July 14 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $42.35, $52.35, $62.35, and $77.85, plus fees, go on sale this Friday, March 3 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Giant Center box office (550 Hersheypark Dr., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 717-534-3911 or 800-745-3000.

Born in Illinois and currently living in Manhattan, Gaffigan is known around the world for his unique brand of humor, which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life and food. With multiple projects in motion, Gaffigan is currently on his Noble Ape arena and theater stand-up comedy tour, with dates through the end of the year.

In a dramatic turn, Gaffigan will next be seen in IFC Films/Showtime’s “The Bleeder” opposite Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Ron Perlman, and Elisabeth Moss. The sports drama follows the true story of boxing champ Chuck Wepner (Schreiber) who, in 1975, went 15 rounds in the heavyweight world championship against Muhammad Ali. Gaffigan portrays John Stoehr, the ever-loyal best friend of Wepner. “The Bleeder” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, with a U.S. release date to be announced shortly. He was also recently cast as a series regular for Season 3 of FX Networks’ “Fargo,” playing the role of police deputy Donny Mashman. Season 3 will premiere in the spring of 2017.

Gaffigan’s latest stand-up special, “Cinco,” is streaming now on Netflix.

The wristband policy will be in effect for this event. Fans are permitted on the Hersheypark Entertainment Complex property beginning at 7 a.m. on March 3. Two hours prior to the on-sale, fans will be directed in front of Giant Center box office, where they will be issued a numbered wristband. Wristbands are available for one hour and, at the conclusion of that hour, a selected fan will randomly choose a wristband that will determine the line order. Numbers 501 to 1,000 will proceed in line behind, followed by numbers 1 through 499. Once the line is in place, fans arriving after the wristbands were issued will be escorted to the end of the numbered line.
