From a press release:

“One of the most versatile talents in entertainment, two-time Emmy Award-winning comedian SARAH SILVERMAN will take the stage at The Theater at MGM National Harbor for a comedic performance April 22 at 8 p.m.

On and off stage, Silverman continues to assert herself as a force in standup comedy. Set for release later this year, Silverman will show off her acting chops in both The Book of Henry and The Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie.

The Theater at MGM National Harbor offers an experience unlike any other in the region, providing fans the opportunity to see world-class entertainment in an intimate setting. The recently opened Theater features seven VIP suites and flexible seating designs, accommodating 3,000 guests for reserved-seating events and a little more than 4,000 for general admission shows.

Tickets for Silverman’s performance range from $59.50 to $85, including applicable service charges, and go on sale Friday, Feb. 3 at 10 a.m. EST. Tickets can be purchased online at mgmnationalharbor.com or ticketmaster.com. For more show and ticket information, visit mgmnationalharbor.com or call (844) 346-4664.

Silverman’s comedy career launched when she joined Saturday Night Live in 1993 as a writer and feature performer. She’s made memorable guest appearances on notable television shows including Monk, which earned her a 2008 Primetime Emmy Award nomination for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.” She also appeared in The Good Wife, The Larry Sanders Show, Mr. Show with Bob and David and Seinfeld.

In 2009, Silverman was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series,” where she fictionalized versions of herself in the Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program. Shortly after, “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee,” Silverman’s memoir, earned the 2010 New York Times Bestseller distinction.

Silverman continues to lend her voice to the Emmy-nominated, FOX animated series Bob’s Burgers and most recently has been seen as the star of I Smile Back, the film adaptation of the Amy Koppelman novel. Her additional film credits include School of Rock, There’s Something About Mary and the Oscar-nominated smash hit Wreck-It Ralph.”

    Something tells me this show will be awkwardly empty (depending on the theater size). I can’t imagine she’s a big-enough draw to get folks out to the casino.

      I wonder if it’s the kind of thing that someone might get for a friend or perhaps their adult child.
      “Happy birthday! I got you Sarah Silverman tickets!”
      “Oh. Uh… thanks.”

    • Effie

      I don’t get it, why would it empty here… I think she can pull in a pretty good sized crowd with current events going on.

    • notconvinced

      I think it will fill up…

      Louis CK just did 4 – 5 shows in a row at DAR that were all filled up which is about the same capacity.. I’m a fan of the latter… but I would imagine she can draw a similar number.. similar fame level.

  • Ross

    Um, no. Not at those prices. Unless someone else is buying. She’ll probably end up taking home the same amount as if she were doing a show at the Improv.

  • jumpingjack

    She’d sell out the Warner. Not sure if people will be willing to go out to the casino to see her.

    • Anonymous

      I actually feel pretty sure the show will sell out ( Folks in the area need ‘Trump cartharsis.’) I would guess her fee is guranteed regardless of ticket sales.

  • NoVaMan

    I hope there are some Trump jokes.

  • Contessa of Cleveland Park

    3,000 to 4,000 seats is “an intimate setting?”

  • MadMax

    She’s the most annoying person in Hollywood since Gilbert Gottfried.

    • Michael Pierce

      I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I really don’t find her exceptionally funny or talented.

  • TBH, I saw her show a few weeks ago (her new tour) at a casino in Windsor, Canada and it was a let down. I’ve seen her before and am a fan but she really phoned it in with this new stuff. Save your $$.

    • Oh, and she maybe referenced Trump one time. I was disappointed.

  • Anon X

    In my opinion, she was doing her best work when she was working for Henry Starling. It was all down hill after 1996.

    • Kevin

      Well, be fair. If time traveling aliens showed up on your doorstep, and then disappeared two days later, you’d probably lose some of your luster, too.
