FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, September 25, 2017) –– The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, in association with Live Nation, welcomes back the hilarious Nick Offerman to the Kimmel Center’s Merriam Theater on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. for his new solo comedy show Full Bush.  Offerman, best known for his role as Ron Swanson on NBC’s hit comedy series Parks and Recreation, appeared at the Merriam Theater in 2016 with wife Megan Mullally in their show Summer of 69: No Apostrophe.

“We are excited to welcome the return of funny man Nick Offerman to the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.  “With each season, our comedy series grows. Nick’s irreverent perspective pushes comedy to the extreme and is a welcomed indulgence for grown-up guests.”

Other featured upcoming performances at the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus include: Eddie Izzard: Believe Me Tour (October 3, 2017, Merriam Theater), Kevin James (October 7, 2017, Merriam Theater), An Evening with David Sedaris (October 16, 2017, Academy of Music), Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science Tour (November 5, 2017, Merriam Theater), Mike Birbiglia’s The New One(November 17 & 18, 2017, Merriam Theater), and John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous (December 1 & 2, 2017, Academy of Music).
