From a press release:

After selling out one show on Jan. 20 and adding another that same night due to popular demand, comedians John Mulaney and Pete Davidson have postponed their co-headlining stand-up shows at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre due to inclement weather and unsafe travel conditions.

Both shows have been rescheduled for Saturday, March 16 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Patrons are urged to hold on to their tickets, as they will be valid on March 16. If refunds are desired, they will be made available at the point of purchase. The 7 p.m. performance is currently sold out, and the 10 p.m. performance only has a few remaining single seats left.

Tickets, which are $48, plus fees, are available at the Sundance Vacations Box Office at the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at, and by phone at 570-826-1100.

Before appearing together in “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” segment last night to talk about Clint Eastwood’s new movie “The Mule” (embedded below), the pair posted a video to Mulaney’s Twitter account promising to “do something special to make up for” the postponement and struggling to pronounce Wilkes-Barre:
