Comedian Jim Gaffigan will bring his “Quality Time Tour” to South Bend for a pre-IDEA Week show. He will perform March 6 (Wednesday) at the Morris Performing Arts Center in downtown South Bend.
The show is hosted by the organizers of Idea Week as part of their new Idea Week Event Series, which will feature entertainment acts and speakers outside of the week’s annual event. This year’s Idea Week will take place April 8-13 (Monday-Saturday).
“A lot of interest was generated in Idea Week after its first successful year,” said event director Nick Swisher. “We had many speakers and entertainment acts contact us to see how they could be a part. To keep the momentum and fun going, as well as to accommodate those acts whose schedules don’t fit our April 8-13 window, we will now be hosting events like Gaffigan throughout the year.”
Idea Week is a cross between a festival and similar innovation and entrepreneurial events in cities such as Boston, Denver and Chicago. It is hosted by the University of Notre Dame, the South Bend-Elkhart region and various community organizations and businesses. Its April event will include more than 50 sessions broken up into four types: Learn, Play, Meet and Compete.
Gaffigan is a four-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer and producer; a two-time New York Times best-selling author; an Emmy-winning top touring performer; and a multi-platinum-selling recording artist. He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor, which largely revolves around his observations on life.
