Comedian Iliza Shlesinger comes to amphitheatre May 13


The outrageously hilarious Iliza Shlesinger will kick off her “Iliza: Back In Action” tour at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Thursday, May 13, for a limited-capacity show with distanced seating.

Shlesinger’s stop at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will be the official kick- off the “Back In Action Tour,” and will be her first show since having to postpone her 2020 tour due to the pandemic.

“My team and I worked very hard to reschedule this tour and are excited to see you all,” Shlesinger said. “We are cautiously optimistic for all the dates to play as we head into an environment full of promise. I love you and can’t wait to be back with all of my Party Goblins!”

Shlesinger is one of today’s leading comedians with a fan base who show their loyalty by creating their own Iliza-inspired swag to wear to her shows. Her fifth Netflix stand up special “UnVeiled” premiered in November 2019 and delves into her journey of getting married. Her past specials include “Confirmed Kills,” “Freezing Hot” and “War Paint.” Her previous Netflix special, 2018’s “Elder Millennial,” is the subject of “Iliza Shlesinger: Over & Over,” her “fan-u-mentary,” which is currently streaming and gives fans an inside look into what goes into the making of one of her specials.

On the acting front, Shlesinger starred in two major films in 2020 — “Spenser Confidential” opposite Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Berg, and “Pieces of a Woman” opposite Vanessa Kirby. “The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show” premiered on Netflix in early 2020. Her first book “Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity (Hachette Book Group),” is a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman’s approach to friendship, singlehood and relationships. Her new podcast “AIA: Ask Iliza Anything” offers up her unique perspective to listeners, answering their questions on virtually any topic.
