Comedian and Actor Jay Mohr Headlines the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel
Jerry Maguire Star Jay Mohr is ready to bring the laughs to Philly this October
Comedian, actor and best-selling author, Jay Mohr, is making his debut at the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on Saturday, October 8, 2022.
Showtime is 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $29.00 and are available for purchase now at Philadelphia.LiveCasinoHotel.com or AXS.com.
Mohr has been performing stand-up comedy since he was sixteen years old. With a career that has spanned over three decades, he has become an artist that is very difficult to define. Never wanting to rest on his accomplishments, Mohr has always pushed himself to be more than just a comic. After landing his dream job of “Saturday Night Live,” it appeared as though he had reached the height of comedic success. Little did he know that just three years later, he would be cast opposite Tom Cruise in “Jerry Maguire” and that same year co-star with Jennifer Anniston in “Picture Perfect.” Now the world that knew "comedian Jay" was quickly introduced to the "actor Jay." Never wanting to choose one career over the other, Mohr has brilliantly balanced both acting and stand-up comedy as roommates in his brain.
In 2004, Mohr wrote the best-selling book, “Gasping for Airtime,” which described his time on SNL and his battle with panic attacks throughout his tenure on the show. To this day, the book remains a must-read for both fans of the show, followers of Mohr, as well as people who suffer from social anxiety, depression and panic disorders. Mohr followed his first book up with “No Wonder My Parents Drink,” which describes in painful and beautifully funny detail the pros and cons of parenthood. The book was subsequently optioned by ABC for the development of a sitcom based on its content.
After 25 films and starring in his own groundbreaking series produced by Joel Silver and the late Ted Demme (Action) he starred in the CBS scripted comedy “Gary Unmarried,” which was critically acclaimed and was on for two seasons. Mohr has guest starred in over 50 different television shows including Dick Wolf's “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” and can currently be seen on the FOX Thriller, “The Cleaning Lady”.
Mohr was named one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-up comics of all time. While no two shows are the same, the one consistent is what Mohr tells his audiences at the beginning of the show, “Let's just jump off a cliff together and build our wings on the way down!"
