The debut season of James Austin Johnson has been a whirlwind unlike almost any other cast member in SNL history and the comedic craftsmanship and prowess of JAJ are wholly responsible for that.
That said, what you’ve seen on the show, if you haven’t had the treasured experience of seeing Johnson live, is only scratching the surface of how James Austin Johnson can hysterically dazzle you. His repertoire of voices and characters and cleverness with which they’re wrought are so damn delightful that you really shouldn’t miss out on a chance to see him.
James will be embarking on his Close To You tour this Summer during the off-months of SNL and will be specifically stopping in at The Bell House at Thurs. Aug. 11th at 7:30PM ET. Tickets are on sale right now and you should go snag ’em at $25 a pop before they inevitably sell out here.
