Comedian Shane Gillis returns for his first headlining comedy show. This comes after he was fired by "Saturday Night Live" over his controversial remarks that he spoke on podcasts. He is headlining after he became a household name due to that incident.

Gillis' rise to fame was halted after some controversial remarks he made on a podcast he co-hosts with comedian Matt McCusker resurfaced on the internet. "Marr and Shane's Secret Podcast" can be found at the show's description after it was listed as what he was "known for." McCusker will also be present to open the show for Gillis. This marks Gillis' first comedic return to Pennsylvania. He talked about his termination in a show, saying "Everybody's like, 'You can't say [expletive] and not expect consequences. I'm fine with the consequences, That's it, I'm not arguing. But I do want everyone to know that I have been reading every one of my death threats in an Asian accent."

His upcoming shows come after his opening for Doug Stanhope at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center on September 29.

The five headlining shows will take place at the Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia from October 24 to 26. The tickets are currently for sale at https://philadelphia.heliumcomedy.com. General admission ranges from $20-$27 and reserved seating is $27-$35. The show is for a general audience 21 and older and those who are 18 to 20 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
