From a press release:

It was announced this week that comedian, actor, and television host Joel McHale, best known for playing the character Jeff Winger on the hit NBC sitcom “Community” and hosting “The Soup” on E! for over a decade, will bring his stand-up comedy to the Keystone Grand Ballroom of Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which range from $25-$70, are on sale now at ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, and by-phone at 1-800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the Mohegan Sun Pocono box office (1280 Highway 315, Wilkes-Barre) at the Player’s Club in the casino. Guests who purchase their tickets at this box office will receive one voucher per ticket for $10 in free slot play, valid on Feb. 22.

Joel McHale is one of the most sought-after comedians and actors in the industry. ​He was most recently seen in the movie “The Happytime Murders” with Melissa McCarthy as well as Netflix’s “A Futile and Stupid Gesture” opposite Will Forte, in which he plays Chevy Chase, his former “Community” co-star. He also recently hosted “The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale” on Netflix, a half-hour topical series that took a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe.

Other starring feature roles include “A Merry Friggin’ Christmas” opposite Robin Williams, the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced supernatural thriller “Deliver Us from Evil,” the Warner Bros’ romantic comedy “Blended” alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, Seth MacFarlane’s comedy smash “Ted,” David Frankel’s “The Big Year,” Steven Soderbergh’s “The Informant,” and “What’s Your Number?” starring Chris Evans and Anna Faris.

In 2015, McHale wrapped the 12th and final season of E! Network’s “The Soup,” in which he satirized pop culture and current events since 2004. He now hosts a revival of the game show “Card Sharks” for ABC.

In the fall of 2016, McHale released his first book through Putnam Penguin, “Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be​,” which is part memoir, part self-help guide.

The 47-year-old released his first stand-up special, “Live from Pyongyang,” in August, discussing everything from feeding alligators in the south to wanting to change the San Francisco 49ers name to something a little more relevant.
